    Trailer on soft sand.

    Hi guys, just getting my ski back together and ready for the first outing.

    I just wanted to ask if anybody had any advice for pushing your skis on your trailers on soft sand.

    The reason I ask is where I take mine there is a concrete ramp but you have to ride around a pier to get to the beach front where your allowed to use your ski, now sometimes I tend to go out with a good friend of mine wakeskating but with only my ski so it's always in the back of my mind " what if I brake down!" As there is no way I could swim with the ski back around the pier! I could get it to shore no problem as we ride right next to the beach but it's soft loose sand! So dont think we could push / pull a trailer on that type of sand loaded with a 3 seater 4 tec ski! Does anybody else have to battle with this kind of problem and if so how do you do it? Thanks jamie

    I will say dont air your trailer tires down, its really easy to have the tire bead come off the wheel, learned that one the hard way.

    what I do is pick up speed before the soft sand and maintain it until I reach wet sand on the beach. I load the jet and use the wet sand to pick up speed (ie over 15mph) again and enter soft sand with that speed. If u stop on soft sand chances of start moving again with loaded trailer are very little.

    momentum is your pal in soft sand. Just ask the guys that get stuck around here with a two ton army truck.
