O'Brien Elite


They stand over 6 feet tall. They are Ragin' Cajun Alums. They are ranked among the top slalom skiers in the world and they will be battling it out for bragging rights under the lights at the LA Night Jam.

They are USA's Ian Trapp and Canada's Trent Finlayson and both ski for RADAR Waterskis, who will present a unique head-to-head slalom challenge between these two top-ranking skiers. Watch in amazement as these athletes take on the slalom course and each other, executing eye-popping turns and acelerating to break-neck speeds in ever-decreasing line lengths.

Just one more reason why YOU should not miss this year's LA Night Night Jam!

It's been 6 years since a region outside the host region won all-stars but it finally happened in 2009 as the midwest showed depth and consistency for the 3700 poiint victory.  After mens slalom they led by 50 and after womens slalom the East had the lead.  But tricks and jump would prove the difference as the Midwest would pull away easily by mid-day Sunday.

It was the largest all-stars turnout since the formation of the 10 skiers format with over 120 skiers.  Beaver Lake and all their sponsors put on a great event as this is the 3rd all-stars there in 6 years.  Daniel Odvarko continued where he left off at Nationals by easily winning mens slalom with 4 @ 39.  In womens slalom Micheala Cooper and Karen Stevens tied for 1st with 3 @ 35 off.  ASU teammates Stormy Selsor and super smoken hot Danielle Stagar won respective trick events and overall titles.  And in the pouring rain Sunday Storm Selsor and Kayla McClure each took home 1st in jump.

Steve LockeHorton: I want to start out this interview by commending you for your weekly blog. I think that in years past there has been a lack of transparency at USA-WS.

Locke: Thank you. Both Jim Grew, president of USA-WS, and I decided early on that we needed to bring renewed transparency to USA-WS, and we thought that the weekly report would be one component in doing so.

   LA Night jam 2009 Think Darkness... www.lanightjam.com

Bigger and better? More crowd interaction, more excitement, more extreme, more danger!? How can we make waterskiing a spectator sport!? This is what three essential waterski industry guys sat down to ponder one evening bya beautiful lakeside sunset; Jay Bennett of Bennett’s Waterski and Wakeboard School, Aarne Clow of Matercraft Boats, and Chris Sullivan of Radar Skis. “How can we make this better?”


“We started testing this new design over 18 months ago. After numerous test molds and countless prototypes I am proud to announce the fruit of our labor has arrived a bit early. Originally slated for an August/September release, the new 2010 D3 Z7 is ready for “competitive” consumption. I could spend valuable ski time writing all the usual hype that goes along with a new ski but it really is not necessary. This ski can do all the talking for me. Two simple words… RIDE ONE. The reviews have been nothing short of miraculous. Don’t be the last to see how good the new Z7 really is.”
“Welcome, 2010 is here a bit early.

D3 Z7At D3 the future is NOW. The Z7 is a completely new ski design. Wider than its predecessors, the Z7 carries the workload in its beefy, wider center section located directly under the front foot. The tip section of the Z7 has not been made wider. By keeping the tip width more traditional the Z7 engages the turns with minimal skier effort. The tail surface area has been moderately increased. This keeps the tip of the ski riding at the proper attitude creating more speed and glide out to the turns. Since the tail is now effectively wider, increased inside radius side-cut was added giving the Z7 effortless turn initiation and a very progressive load to the wakes. Wider, but still catering to an endless variety of slalom course styles. http://store.d3skis.com/
