Great shots. Thanks. I see how it's done now. ;)

A few pointers I can take from those: keep your head up and look down course during the first half of your turn; as you finish your turn you should be looking across towards the next ball.

yahh, one of those "100" things to think about behind the boat?!?

Those are nice shots. Seems like he has a different style than how Wade Cox teaches. I remember Wade saying always keep your shoulders square to the boat when moving cross course, thus always keep your eyes looking down course or on the horizon. If your timing/rhythm is right, you shouldn't need to look at the turn balls, your peripheral vision is more than sufficient to know where your apex is.

But hey, Roscoe skis into 41 so to each his own.
