The V shaped ridge tracks the water, almost like a rudder to stop the ski from fish tailing and wobbling. Aimed at beginners, the Connelly Outlaw is a solid ski to get to grips with slalom skiing.

Final thoughts / Conclusion

Connelly Outlaw can provide greater control and maneuverability to beginners than other skis. Movements are more predictable, and the experience requires less physical effort than thinner, shallower tipped water skis. Ideal for those who are starting slalom skiing and need a helping hand with initial balance on the water. When moving over from two skis to slalom, I would recommend this ski as a good transitional ski; the large surface area will give confidence to whoever takes up the challenge.
