I look at pictures of my own skiing and I am stacked. My body is aligned but honestly I am back. My stack is predictive of my score. I think guys who run 38 have to be pretty stacked but the guys who run 39 are stacked AND forward.
I have heard stories about Nate A) To stay forward he has is back heel off the ski everywhere except from the white water to the center line B ) that he has taken out the front falls at the wakes trying to get farther forward through the wakes.
I see TW with his knees driven way forward and I simply cannot relate. I see Greg Badal ski and I do not know what the hell he is doing but his center of mass is forward. Mapple same. Asher and CP do not look crazy in any way they are very centered. Don’t get me started on T-Gas. Jeff Rogers is a model I can think about but there a lot I still do not understand.
If there is one subject in slalom skiing that I have no freak’n idea about this is it. Ok Advanced guys – How do you think about getting from simply aligned to forward?
