Question Long distance flash

I want to light a waterskier that is backlit by daylight sun. I have tried an SB900 but it just does not reach. I looked at an Elinchrom ELB400 but it's a bit pricey.
The skier is at the end of a 75 foot ski rope. The sb900 is only good for 66 feet at best.
Has anyone been faced with such a lighting predicament? I have shot friends skiing in the past but now my photography has moved to a new level of seriousness and I want the skier backlit through the spray but not end up silhouetted. Tired of that problem.
Thanks in advance.
