Administrators Horton Posted March 31, 2010 Administrators Share Posted March 31, 2010 I am working on an idea that is not necessarily all the way cooked. Comments and additions welcome. (If Eric agrees then this is all wrong.)If you think about the difference between Good Side (Heel Side) and Bad Side (Toe Side), I think you need to divide the differences between what your body does from how that affects what your ski does.On your Toe Side Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Bad Side Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 1/3/5 RFF (compared to On Side)On the way to the ball:1) You hips are generally more rotated toward the wakes2) Your counter rotationÃ‚Â - hips, shoulders or whatever is less3) Your inside shoulder is more leaned in4) Your weight distribution is more forward5) Your body is more in-line (right to left)On Heel SideThe opposite of all above -on Heel Side (On Side) you are more countered with less weight on your front foot. With the additional counter rotation you can more easily move your hips toward the wakes and keep your inside shoulder up.If this is all correct, you turn your ski with more weight on your front foot but less roll on Toe Side. On Heel Side your ski has more roll but has a more tip up attitude.Make sense?
