Skiing Video - Looking for tips on form
 
https://vimeo.com/72497522

I feel like I've got enough speed through the wakes to run the course at 28@-15, but I can't seem to turn hard or fast enough. Would love to hear some feedback...

Paging TxsRiverRat :D

BTW the Ski-Doc camera mount worked great for filming. Links to my equipment in the description of the video...

LOL - thanks... Vimeo is blocked @ work, and sucks on my cell phone. So, all I can see is the preview pic when I pull it up.

I will watch it tonight, but here is what I see:

Looks like you are tail riding really bad - you got to mash down on the front of the ski alot harder... if you're tail riding that bad behind the boat, my guess is you're doing it at the turn too, which means you're losing all your angle.

RFF? I can't tell... If so, turn both shoulders towards the boat, eyes on the pylon :)

More later after I view the video

Yup - tail riding... looked like me earlier in the year... on your coast wait to turn until the water is breaking under your front binding.... Look here...

LFF so this is my onside turn. I feel like I'm mashing my front foot down when I'm riding steady but as soon as I start swerving I must be getting back on the tail really hard.

Aim for getting this much ski in the water:
