Finally Pick up my spark on Friday. I attempted to go straight to Lake Ray Hubbard but found out the ramps were closed because of low water. So I went home and did some research and found a lake in the Dallas area that was open. Went out to Joe Pool Lake in Grand Prairie on Saturday Morning. This is my first ski and first time towing so I had a lil difficulty backing trailer into water lol (Rookie). Finally got the ski in the water and got busy. I think I should have got the IBR package because I was having a few issues when pulling up to doc but I made it through. The spark really gets up and zooms across the water. Got up to 50 mph a few times. Looking forward to going back out this Sat. I will prob get another spark soon because I know I will prob get bored out on the water by myself. Overall I am glad I made the purchase...

Had mine out for the first time this weekend at the Colorado River. Only out about an hour on it but **** what a ride! We got it as an "extra" to our boat, but I can see spending a bit more time on the Spark than the boat.......:)

Nah you'll get used to no ibr. I've never had it and never had any issues. Spark coasts pretty good into the dock for me.

Dock chewed up a few inches on my spark last time out while it was tied off for a while though.

Nice ski!
Were the IBR is not needed I got it on mine and it really comes in handy.
Didn't your temp tag get wet when you backed it into the lake?

Temp tag on trailer is still in good shape. Now temp tag for ski got messed up this past weekend in the front storage. Water was very wavy and kept splashing up on ski...

I see you have a Tahoe, Open your rear hatch while backing up and it will making backing that ski up much better. Its probably hard to see it on your mirrors. Just turn around when backing up and look at ski. I always drop tailgate on my truck
Went out to Lake Lavon this weekend and I opened up my back hatch and was able to back up with no problems. It went way smoother than my first time out and I was by myself this time and had no issues unloading and losing the ski... Thanks for tip..
