    Sorry about that. Looking back at it, that was kind of a di46 post by me.

    Re: Racing Practice Buoys!?!

    im trying to get my gear together to setup a course, all i seem to be able to find is 8" (waterski slalom course buoys)inflatables, seems like they'd be way too small to see in the chop from the skis
    i wanna say the ones we used at mission beach were 18"

    yes i know super old thread

    Re: Racing Practice Buoys!?!

    Thanks, but those are the same as the ones I was talking about, 9" might as well be 8"

    I found 18" ones a couple weeks ago, I'll post a link when I get home from work

    Polyform buoys are not cheap but they last forever and can take the abuse of skis hitting them. Available at West Marine. The ones they throw down at Mission are 15"

    Re: Racing Practice Buoys!?!

    these are what i found, everyone ive talked to says they will take a beating as long as you only inflate them enough to hold their shape

    One hard pass on those guys and you'll be riding a course of floating plastic. For local practice the best ones are still the 9" waterski buoys. They are fairly inexpensive and MUCH more durable than a beach ball. Pair them with some cord that sinks (some nylon cords float and floating cords will get sucked up) and some bricks or old dumbbells for anchors and you'll have a set that will last.

    Re: Racing Practice Buoys!?!

    Overton's had ski slalom buoys for cheap, like around $7 each but the website isn't working. I got them a very long time ago, like 10+ years, and they're still good. I don't know why their site isn't working for me. I think these are the same ones and they're only about $8 per buoy. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...426c053443cd90

    Just get some 1/4in rope from the hardware store (cheap) and find some weights. I used semi truck lug nuts but I'm sure you can find something else too.
