^^ so many shout outs from me - he's goin' down... face above water facing down - body follows.... 90% of time unless rider can pull it out.

Yes find something on horizon to look at....was my biggest issue for slalom deep water starts as well as trying to stand up too early... even on 2.

Best advice is having someone teach you who knows what they are doing... I learned deep water starts in Michigan at Pine Lake Ski School - so I recommend a good teacher. A boom is a great bonus.
