Baller ScarletArrow Posted September 28, 2007 Baller Share Posted September 28, 2007 OK, I know my head and eyes are supposed to be looking down the course...but help me out here.Background...It's near the end of the season for me...I'm fatigued...so rather than chasing the next speed I'm staying atÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 32 mphÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â whichÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I'm completing consistently...and working on the kinks in my form.Up to this point,ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â my head/eyes have generally been focused on the ball I'm approaching...now my chin isn't necessarily on my chest as I stare down the ball rounding the turn, but my head/eyes never really face north (up the course).My approach...let's sayÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â going from 1b to 2b...has been toÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â turn my head/eyes right-to-left during the turn (100+ degrees) so that I am looking completely accross the course to a point on the water before the next ball...I then pick up the next ball as I leave the 2nd wake...then repeat the other direction.Now I read on another forum that my eyes should only see 3 things...6 ball, mirror, 5 ball.The next day (a couple of days ago) I tried toÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â keep my head/eyes up the entire time while running my 32mph pass and only look at these 3 things...lets just say the results weren't too pretty.I felt like I was moving so quickly that my eyes couldn't pick up and find 6 or 5 ball as I'm rounding the turn.I also felt like my head was rolling around...looking this way and that...trying to find visual cues.Of course I've read elsewhere about where I should be looking while going through the course...but there seem to be as many different answers as there are skiers.So what say you? What position should my head/eyes be in 10ft. before the bouy? What position should my head/eyes be in at the bouy? What position should my head/eyes be in 10 ft. after the bouy? What position should my head/eyes be in directly behind the boat?Anthony Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
