Baller ForrestGump Posted November 19, 2013 Baller Share Posted November 19, 2013 So in discussing @Horton's point to me about Nate and Mapple riding out to the buoy line with a ski on a noticeably flatter pitch, one of the top Big Dawg skiers told me this.................. I do not want to push the ski out in front of me during the edge change as that only forces my weight back, setting a harder edge with more pitch. Ideally i want my hips to move out in alignment with my knees which move out in alignment with my feet. What you find is that nearly every skier is out of alignment at that phase with either hips and shoulders back behind knees or shoulders ahead of hips which are behind feet. Nate keeps his entire unit in tact everywhere. In addition, he then stated that he believes most skiers are trying to send their ski towards the shore much too soon, right after the second wake. Which causes the boat to move away as they're slowing too much on that inside edge. Thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
