.......Speed?
The video shows about 17 seconds gate to gate, that equals about 34 MPH



again great skiing and video!

Well,seems i don't run the program to view it from the first link!
Trying from youtube right now...But from the pix here seems that my arm is way too high while turning...Ran 28 yesterday !:)

André

Took only minutes to see from youtube!!!:)
Not the nicest technique but working on it!
Been working on my gate lately with good results like getting wider at 1 and carrying that for the rest of the pass.
Tips and input are welcome...
i noticed that my handle release on my off side,1 3 5, is ...bizarre!!!:o

Edit:yes the speed was 34...

Tips are welcome...are you kidding me? How many people here can make a pass at 34MPH/22 off?

You are right...I meant to say, "Besides the amazing Ric..."

Andre: Looks good. A couple of things to work on one at a time:

1. Freeze the video in your reach at the buoy - bring the handle up level with your free hand shoulder. This will help keep the ski in front of you coming out of the turn and not allow the ski to "suck in" behind you.
2. As you are coming off the second wake, keep you arms straight and try to bring the handle in front of you so you can reach high and down course as opposed to low and toward the boat. This will also assist in maintaining outward direction of your ski. This will come in handy at 28 and beyond.
3. Finally, when you reach, place your free hand on your hip and leave it there until you feel your hips start to rotate w/ the ski. Then get back on the handle. This will facilitate counter rotation at the turn and allow the ski to complete its turn before initiating the pull.

Remember, don't try to work on all 3 at once.

You are right...I meant to say, "Besides the amazing Ric..." thats better. actually, I'd be surprised if I can run 15off as few times as I've skiid this year

I ski twice per week, but I still am holding at about the same level (no pass complete yet). I guess I should have someone besides my wife and kids grading my skiing :) :o

Just a suggestion on the OP, not the skiing: Move the youtube link to the first post. Since the link in the OP has expired, you have to read 2 1/2 pages to find the new link.

Thanks!
Been skiing poorly since your visit..No "real" 28 off yet with the new Nomad.Certainly not the ski fault but it seems i forgot how to get wide after the second wake,always feeling late at the ball.Ran 4.5 this morning but was late from the second ball...
We need more coaching,you and Scott should get back here ASAP!!!:)
Man ,it's tough to get rid of old bad habits!:(

André

You are a better skier then that, I bet if you slapped you bindings back on the KD 28off would be a gimme. I think you need to move the DFT back .004 to help get cross course angle & if it makes things worse move the fin the other way.

I am a little out of the loop, but Andre is back with Natalie?

When going for a new girlfriend it always helps to pick 1 with the same name as the previous girlfriend as it prevents verbal mistakes.8p

:noface: :rant: :eek3:
No way man!
New one's name is Nathalie too!
Found the problem of my poor skiing .
It was the boat.Partner's 06 197's wake is certainly not as nice as my 94.We took my boat for tonite's set and both of us skied better behind it.Time's were OK and i ran 2 times 28 off.Maybe because it's the only boat i have been skiing for the last 4 years but the wake on mine is really more soft and small at 28.
Love my 94 and glad i didn't spend 50 k on a new boat!:)

That's what I am talkin' about Big "A"! Gotta love the 94! Mine is rockin' as well! Wake? Bubble trail more accurate! Nice to see you having so much fun A-Man! Great White Norte! Andre take care and get some more stories of you sneaking into water ski tourney's! I snuck into concerts but you have to have it bad to sneak into a AWSA tourney!
