Lesson coming from Doug at the Liquid Edge next Saturday. Definately pumped for some more humbling

Hopefully my wife's shingles dont keep us from camping at Clinton Lake and me missing my lesson. This will be my second in two years. Man I wish he was closer.

Goal is to run a full pass at 30mph @ 15 off before I winterize the boat. One day lesson at Coble in 3 weeks!

I have another thread with some videos of me but I didn't get many replies on how to improve. I have been watching videos on you tube for some reference points on body positioning, grip, and a variety of other drills. They have helped. But I am looking for some pointers specifically from all you knowledgeable slalom skiers.
In these videos I was ridding with both palms down. I am going to experiment with different grips as I think this may have been one of the things I have been missing.

The major things I know I need to work on are:

1. Improve body possitioning
2. Keep a edge through the wake
3. Loosing my bad habits that I have developed
