Baller alex38 Posted October 21, 2008 Baller Share Posted October 21, 2008 As I get better and smoother at shorter line lengths, the gate technique becomes more and more critical. I have approached it with a few different theories and have had some success but not much consistency. I skied the other day and tried something that leads to my question. Everyone keeps saying "don't pull so hard thru the gate". So I tried turning in for the gate wicked early but really slow...the gate seemed more in front of me then to the side of me, I thought I was gonna miss it completely but I slid right thru and was early for 1.My question is this...if ti makes any sense, On a two-handed gate at 34 mph, just before turning in for the gate what degree angle should the right hand gate ball be positioned from my vision? For instance, I have always thought it should be like a 90 degree angle, thats how you get speed and angle, but that seems to be releasing me down course on the other side of the wake. The other day i tried more like a 45 degree angle and just stayed very light on the pull until I was at the gate. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
