Live2ski Posted July 10, 2012 Share Posted July 10, 2012 Is there anything that you guys concentrate on to stop you overturning at the bouy? The reason I ask is that when I watch videos of pretty much anyone competent (pro/dawg or just 35off and above) they all seem to finish the turn with exactly the right amount or less ski angle than they need, the angle then being developed in the acceleration phase. This seems to happen even when running late and the turns are forced they come round fast usually taking a hit but the ski is pointing to the boat making the hit managable. I realise that what I am taking about is possibly "pass scramble mode", but think its worthwhile considering how its done as as a lesser mortal I could do with an insight. My own particular problem relating to this is that I am enjoying all the right accleration sensations and riding the ski through the turns whilst free skiing (shadowing the bouys) but overturning and taking hits unnecessarily when in the course (this is at 32off), these hits are obviously too close to the bouy which pulls me up and, if I can hold it, results in a drag to the next bouy - pass over. l would love to be able to force the turn a bit when necessary but leave the ski pointing a bit more downcourse at the finish. Any ideas, or is it just me! Kevin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
