Yep - is on this page ...

"The towing eye in the top of the frame will pull a reasonable size skier"

Don't like that word - Reasonable - in a context such as that.
Sorry Jim, but it means bugger all.
Am I a reasonable size at 15st?

Hi Speak to Mark at Marine fabrications 01543 670033

He did a great job on my Aframe and they regularly build bespoke A-frames for wakeboarders.

Yea I dont like the sound of a "reasonable size skier" either. Especially since wakeboarding exerts a larger force than most peoples "recreational" skiing.

Cheers guys I'll look into all these ideas and I'll let you know how i get on.
