    Way too much rubber.

    Seems like a little early handle separation.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    Hard to tell without context, but head is up, good body position and both hands on handle. If he has already generated all the speed necessary for the what ever pass he is on he is looking good. If not, edge change may be way to early as I at least attemp to change edge at the 2nd wake and then push the forebody of the ski into ski into the water.

    At this point, the ski should still be closer to the boat then his body, he’s got the opposite going on.

    I think that was the idea behind @adamhcaldwell comment too. Maybe it's a cable course.

    Maybe he has a strong tail/cross wind.....

    Well I was hoping this image would create some interesting conversation. When I first the image in the first post I thought it looked like a crazy early edge change. The reality is Cole went WAY too hard out of the pervious ball and a over energetic edge change was the result.

    Right on the money, they usually look more like the above photo of Mapple. Like you said @AdamCord its definitely horrible to do at short line lengths and usually puts you on a straight line to the next buoy. The photo below is more how I strive to look at edge change.
