Opinions wanted..Slalom session

So I haven't had any good critique of my slalom skills lately. Anyone have any constructive criticism?

Thanks for the help!!

Have you stopped the video and looked at body position?

Take a look at this: Your offside cut you start out good but then you come off your pull at the worst point - right behind the boat



I also advise you to not look in the direction you're going - look at the back of the boat or the pylon, it will get your shoulders open (facing) the boat.

So after my cut I should look at the boat? Never heard that before and I will try it.

No, I am saying you look at the boat throughout the cut and only look across course after the wake crossing. You need know knees facing the buoys and your shoulders facing the boat. I also see that part of the issue if you're on the tail a bit. What I do like is how you keep your handle down low.

See your eyes in pic 1? Looking across course. You should be looking at the pylon. You need to point your RIGHT shoulder at the boat on the offside pull, you have them both pointed cross course.

you are bent at the waist and on the tail . Absolutely no back arm pressure and no forward progress on the ski . In the first picture you should be at least thirty degrees further back
