Cool - friend of mine skiing for Canada.
Help get me to my training camp in Florida! - I began to lose my vision at the age of nine. At the age of 22 I began adaptive water skiing with my coaches LeRoss Calnek and Dave Wassill at the Saskatoon Water Ski Club where I continue to train today.

I think I prefer knockout compilations with some set-up and commentary, but this was certainly an interesting mix.  Very artistic and very professionally done.

Great job - you are obviously very industrious.  I would love to undertake a project like this one day.  I guess I should spend less time watching youtube. :D
