Thanks for all of the great tips guys. Hopefully I'm like the kid asking questions in class: willing to embarrass myself publicly for the benefit of others with the same questions Will keep taking video and posting to this thread.

Skiing Video - Looking for tips on form

I'll post some videos of my drills from tonight, but thought you guys might enjoy this video of an OTF at 5fps. Check out the sunglasses that go flying! (they are Bomber floating models so Ii found them 20 feet away)

Gnar.

You need to stick to 15off till you have the basics down. And yes this boat has a massive 22 bump. But its no problem with lots of angle and soft knees. Gotta be in position or it will put you OTF. Makes for great video though!

For sure stick to 15 off. On your pullout, you had a really nice stacked position with your shoulders back and hips up. Then, on your turn in, your hips went back and your shoulders were forward. Compare your position at 7 sec. vs 31 sec. Bent knees are good, but not if you are broken at the waist. Also, lose the one handed gate IMO. You can always go back to this down the road. I tried it one summer and it seemed to be counter-productive.

Dang I am over posting in this thread... ... been really working the pull thru... my shoulders are much better than from the year before... first pic November 10, 2012.

Still lots of work left for me to get like the bottom photo - at least I am no longer getting launched thru the wake... 45-60 minutes of ski on water time a week just ain't cutting it... progressing - but very slowly... But overall I am satisfied with my improvement this year...
