Administrators Horton Posted January 3, 2014 Administrators Share Posted January 3, 2014 So I took about 3 months off skiing. Other stuff in life was taking all my time. First ride back I went out one line length longer than usual. I felt like crap the whole ride. Second ride back I ran passes at one length longer and my normal starting length. Still felt like crap. I could not arc back in from my off side and I felt like I was in a awkward position across the wakes. This is at line lengths that are easy for me in summer. At this point I was thinking maybe I need to move my bindings. I had changed skis and maybe I mounted this one up wrong. Maybe the cold water means I needed to change a setting. Third ride back. I focused on fundamental ski basics and everything was back to normal. In my case it was only a matter of squeezing the handle off the second wake to maintain a better connection longer. (for you it may be something totally different) The point is: when it is cold or you have not been on the water for a while fix your fundamentals before you get out the wrenches.
