Hi Guy's & Gals
Need some help here, onside turn, right foot fwd, problem with 2/4 ball, as I exit I feel that the boat has got me just enough to stop me laying back on the line, I am having to hold position with stomach & Back muscles, this does not feel comfortable, almost like the ski has not followed through, I have been working on trying to get my entry into 2/4 better and tried various different stances, but the end result is still either being crushed or the feeling that the boat has got me, with the ski underneath me.
Thinking that a FWD or Backward movement of the rear RTP may help, rather than start messing with the fin, or would that be the wrong way to go ?
Toes touch the front binding at the moment.

    If your 135 are good try moving the RTP one hole or less if possible backwards.
    You can also try to decrease length be a couple of thousands,
    That's what I would try.
    If I understood the question right.

    @skialex thanks, yes you understand correctly 1,3,5 is fine, hooking up at 2,4 is not feeling good, cannot get into a postion, where you feel the boat accelerate you across course.

    Moving your binding is easy to do and you can put it back it doesn't work. Any recommendation is a guess without video. I had the same problem as you and had some coaching last weekend. My bad 2/4 was because of my poor stack through the gates. Post some video

    Increasing the distance between your bindings can make on side flow better without impacting offside. A small change can make a big difference and too much spread between your feet can cause all kinds of other negative effects.

    At the end of the turn, Does your ski tip grubs and your hips stay behind? Try the RTP movement (back), or remove some length, 2/1000 at a time.

    So I moved my RTP back one hole today, such a positve move, could not believe how much more it put me on the front of the ski, my ski now carries more in the glide, the ski turns so much better both sides and I feel more stable across the wakes, such a small movement of the rear binding and a substanial change in the way the ski feels and rides.
