Purple Goes Down

About a week ago I finally managed to get through -38 in practice and managed to jag a couple at -39 just to see what it felt like. I went straight down the line which made it that little bit sweeter so I can check that box and think about the next loop which might take more than a couple of years to work out... There is a lot of info inside this forum that made it possible so thanks to everyone who contributes here, the game changer for me on -38 was some crazy stuff that @adamhcaldwell wrote about gates and some other stuff about skiing at the ball / up on the boat. Don't know why it worked but maybe because my work zone became shorter and less outbound and I started to let myself swing up on the boat? It started to feel almost easy.. Thanks again everyone and I could not have got it done without the KD!

    Nothing like the right technical input combined with a ski that works for you!

    I am hoping to see purple this summer, but my offseason training is not going well since I have been sick most of February.. My best in practice is [email protected] off. I got through the exit gate but lost the handle after I got out because of the slack.
