Can’t believe no one is talking about Regina running 4@41 on here....

Not to mention it was done behind the best boat out there.

C'mon...give up the video. I know someone who was there must have it. Someone records her every time she skis. We're so impatient in this world now..haha!
Awesome job Regina!

Supposedly there was a video of the boat path on instagram but it was oddly removed after it was noted that Chad Scott was the driver. Not sure if one has to do with the other but seems odd that it was taken down

Nothing was taken Down was never on instagram. It was posted on fb and it looks like it was very straight. Hancock tourney also produced overall record by sledge. Great skiing

Chad has been one of the best drivers over the last few years, and has pulled Regina probably more than any other driver. Hancock does them right, so there will be video. If it passes, it passes...It ain't easy! I know 2 that saw the vid and think it will pass.

Chad pulling Regina is a giant conflict of interest. Ridiculous.
Reply with quote #9
Why? Are they related somehow?

should have written "and has DONE Regina probably more than any other driver"

Couldn't care any less about their relationship unless I was single. haha
Video, and timing tell us if the record is good. The video looks good to me and I've seen a lot of them. This is a small sport, and I know just about every driver who ever pulls me in tourneys. Some are very close, lifelong friends of mine. Don't you think they want me to set a PB every time i ski behind them? I know they do! Most of these drivers are trying to give you the best pull you can have all the time.

First of all, Chad and Regina are two of the nicest people on this Planet and have given a lot to this sport. To ski the way she skied and to drive the way Chad drives is a true ART FORM. This is the Waterski Version of Dancing with the Stars. There should be a Waterski Award for Drivers pulling a World Record. I have seen the end course video and it is flawless. I am only waiting for the 1st Woman to run 41, and I know this team, together could do that.
Congrats to both Chad and Regina for another World Record !!!!

I heard her boyfriend was driving at a closed tournament on a Monday at Garcia's lake. Look at the picture posted on Malibu thread - not good. Whitney should be raising hell about this.

Which Malibu thread?

I guess you were wrong again. End course video on her new record shows that PYLON is as good as it gets. Record approved.

Just wondering , this has always bothered me. What exactly have they “given to this sport”?

@Reality Check, have you ever been to a tournament where Regina skied? If so, you probably noticed her talking w/pretty much anyone she came in contact with or noticed her in the boat as a judge or on the dock helping with ropes/handles or... Point is she is a great ambassador for the sport and a great role model for younger skiers. My guess is you've never met her or been to a tournament where she was a competitor. Otherwise, you wouldn't have made your post.
Chad has given back by countless hours of exceptional driving. There may be some tournaments where his skills are rewarded financially but the vast majority are volunteer. Also, he doesn't shy away from helping in other capacities as well at tournaments. Additionally, he is always willing to share his skiing knowledge whether you're a 15 off or 39 off skier. I'd say they have "given back" plenty to the sport.

Oh, so pretty much what everyone that's been in the sport more than 5 yrs does?

@Reality Check, please tell us what you expect a professional skier to do in order to "give back" to the sport.
Also, how many tournaments must a driver volunteer his time in order to qualify for your "give back" criteria?

Development clinics, driving kids, scoring, board meetings, help college teams get access and gear, instructional vid raps on how to perfect the wheelie , stuff like that
