and I were talking today about the differences between Slow Boat Times, Long Ropes, Narrow Balls or Driver Weave. The context was not about cheating but how to learn the next pass.
I have skied with ½ loops and I can BANG out 36.5 passes all day but 38 is still a special challenge.
I was once in the boat when @twhisper
was giving @ColeGiacopuzzi
a MASSIVE weave at 41 off to teach him the feel of the pass. I though Terry had lost his mind until he explained what he was doing. I will let Cole explain but his first reaction to the subject was that weaving is the best way to help. @theboardingschool
I am curious on your view of this.
I think a lot of skiers use slower speed as a learning tool. I also know skiers who ski fast for easy passes and then actual or a tiny bit slow at the harder passes.
Narrow balls? To my knowledge no one does this unless they are actually cheating. Personally I want find an easy and fast way to move my balls in by about 9” just to see the impact. If it lets me learn to be calm and composed at a shorter line MAYBE this would be a good tool to learn that next pass.
