    THANKS! Going south in 2 weeks so a good time to work on that gate pull out. You mentioned dragg a couple times and that is what i feel all the time.

    Hips up, Counter more into both turns, open up more behind the boat.

    @Carl

    If you make a solid effort to get moving on the gate differently, but still feel like you can’t get free of the boats pull, it might be worth making a bump on the fin/wing/boot setup to get things working better for you.

    What boat setting do you use?

    Keep us posted!

    Noticed the same thing as Adam, especially in the 32 vid. You mentioned going south. Is that to a school? If so, tell them that's what you want to work on.

    Gate pull-outs seem on the surface like something you shouldn't really have to think about too much, but it's critical to get it working right for you. There's a lot more going on in the pullouts of the really good skiers than meets the eye.

    Hard to tell with the quality of the video, but seems to me that we're seeing too much space between front leg and back leg. I'm thinking hips and knee pointing to the right for the pullout and onside crosses.....? Or is it possible bindings are too far apart? I'm thinking alignment issues.
