Skiing on a pair should present no problem, neither will tubing or wakeboarding ....
Moving to Single ski deepwater starts would be a problem for bigger riders.
Consider looking at a lower pitch prop if you struggle at pulling away.
I changed the prop on my SR3 to a High 5 and that made a huge difference to pulling away.
If you have problems with bow rise (I did) when pulling away at full power, consider fitting SMART tabs.
