    Anyone else notice a huge increase in skis from last year to this year?

    Personally, I'm noticing a big increase in skis this year from last year and it's JUST getting warm! We went on the lake here on saturday and there was a TON of skis on the lake. More than what's normally there in the peak of summer.

    I can say that around here, over the last 3 years, I have seen a huge increase in the amount of skis out on our river. Def a lot more people riding than before.

    The new ski's seem to be getting alot of attention from boat owners. I know a couple people that will be leaving the boat in the slip and bought a couple skis to ride.

    Yeah, the last month or so it seems like every other day when I check my facebook I see someone else buying a new ski or two.
    Good that the sport is growing how it is, though.

    Usually check Craigslist to judge how things are going and I'm not seeing much used ones for sale like times past and the ones listed they're asking a kings ransom.

    Oh I know. There's people here locally trying to get $2000 for 15 year old skis that don't run... It's insane.

    Definitely more people with them on our small lake. With the cost of gas, families can't afford the kids taking the boat out as much.
    Sad thing is they think they can just hand over the keys to the ski to anyone and let them ride. You can always tell when company is staying with neighbors and using their ski.

    That's funny, sad and true all at the same time.

    Crazy to think you can just get the keys to a 12k+ ski or a 65mph + ski without any training and just ride it. People underestimate skis and main reason they get hurt or cause major damage.
