501Brandon Posted April 22, 2012 Share Posted April 22, 2012 I know there have been several topics on this and the interpretation quite different in a lot of cases from skier to skier. I feel like I have always had a pretty good approach by getting up on the boat and having a "controlled and progressive turn in" to the gate... I have also heard the term "Hammering the gate" used a lot. I know that each skiers apporach to this will vary pending their individual style but to my curiousity I have to wonder if turning in and digging deep to try and gain as much angle and speed as you can somehow puts you just a little out of control. Where as being in control with with the same angle yet not fighting for speed will accomplish more would it not? Would it be safer to say that embracing the speed you gain by being in control is better than digging in and hammering the gate? (EDIT: I am sure it will change a bit as the rope gets shorter but for the -15thru -28 guys is what I am kinda curious about) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
