From what I can tell...old skiers is all I see left. Almost 50...and I only ski open water. Here is some rough water with 3 teenagers in the boat.

Just watched your video. 1st comment: never ever thread your arm through the handle. If you have that freak fall (and I saw it happen to a national competitor), your arm could suffer irreparable damage… If you’re tired or hands are sore, have the boat drop you where you can take 45 seconds and get back up. It’s not worth the risk of jacking your arm up, possibly permanently.

Next comments: Take your video frame by frame to analyze form flaws. Here is what I saw

1. Need to get your hips up – “stick your weenie out like you’re proudly showing it off...” In pic below, your arse is behind you
2. Need to hold your pull all the way through both wakes – look at screenshot – you’re flat and let ff way too early.
3. Add weight to front foot – avoid tail riding
4. I would recommend softening your knees throughout the whole pass, but especially at the turns

There’s more, but I will leave you with those preliminary tips for now.

Happy Skiing

Hey thanks for the advise. All good points. Normally I would not have skied in those conditions. It was windy and rough. I did it because 3 teenagers in the boat would not. Ill post some turns in better conditions. I will admit that skiing behind that 85 makes me pucker a bit.

You're welcome. The 85 should pull great. I occasionally get a pull behind an 82 and it's just a cool boat. I skied a seasonal PB last night, I ran every 15 pass, 3 or 4 22 passes and got around [email protected]!

Let's pray I ski that good at the next tournament. My 2nd tournament this season was so bad it was embarrassing
