made a comment in another thread about wanting to change edges earlier. I think this is an interesting subject that I am not sure has ever been really flushed out in this forum. I see lots of skiers at all levels who struggle with pulling too long. I think there are a lot of causes and effects.
For me I very much struggle with pulling too long through the gates at my hardest passes. Of course there are a lot of factors a the gate. The best coaching I have gotten in a long time was to keep my shoulders more level to keep from overloading and pulling too long ( @twhisper
I also very much like the idea of bringing my head up higher off the water as early as the first white water. In my mind the goal is not so much a early edge change as it is a long slow transition that starts as early as possible. When I am successful the result is a very early line to the next ball.
Any of you smart guys have comments?
