    That is why she is my favorite skier to watch.

    Regina -- Thanks for setting a WR on my birthday!

    Almost a footnote to some incredible skiing, but that is one sweet boat path! Who's the driver? Huge kudos to him/her!

    Is Regina the most dominant skier, male or female, that we have ever seen?

    @Jaypro I am not sure how you could argue she isn't...

    @Jaypro The only other person even in the discussion for "most domination vs. peers" is Andy Mapple. Hard to choose between those two, but I am definitely starting to lean toward Regina!

    My all time favorite training/inspiration video. My contention, I think probably pretty much broadly shared, is that great women skiers are probably better form skiers than men, since men can rely more on their strength to muscle through the course.

    “So, how was your weekend?”
    “Well, let me see…sun burn, stiff neck, screwed up back, assorted aches and pains….yup, my weekend was great, thanks for asking.”

    @75Tique yes! I think I have watched that like 107 times by now and freeze framed every meter of the course

    Given I am "not tall" I much prefer getting technique inspiration from Regina than the big boys like CP.

    Awesome skiing for sure! It was awesome standing on the shoreline at Lymanland watching Regina ski all weekend, especially her 4-1/[email protected] and [email protected] (two different drivers).
    I had already seen the boat path video for the 4-1/[email protected] This video was the basis for my comments in the other thread that the prop wash in this video never comes close to touching any boat guides, versus the screenshots from somewhere else that were posted by @Horton that showed the prop wash bouncing from left boat guide to right boat guide to left boat guide, and so on - with the skier. No zig-zagging here.
  • ZmanZman Posts: 1,454 Crazy Baller
    @jayski In the other thread, that opinion was clearly disagreed with. Yes, pylon matters.
    But, prop wash IS an indication of boat path. And, prop wash engulfing boat guides and swapping side to side with the skier is not good driving. Or, not the best driving.

    Is it just me or does it look like she is narrow on 5?


  • ZmanZman Posts: 1,454 Crazy Baller
    Wrong frame. Advance to frame to show front boot and buoy. She got it. 4-1/2.
  • Than_BoganThan_Bogan Posts: 6,393 Mega Baller
    Hm. Should I quit my current life and instead follow Regina around so that I can be there when she runs the whole damn pass?

    @Than_Bogan. It's coming!

    Prop wash without the pylon video is meaningless. In her case (and most high end skiers), if your prop wash is not getting blown to the bouy side, then you have let the boat get pulled to the bouy side.

    Great skiing. Unbelievable. Good driving Lyman. I call 4 though. I am part Russian.

    How is the end course video actually evaluated to see if it’s in tolerance?

    10.25? Oh 41 off. Ok that makes sense.

    Got clarification that the video posted does not include the frame where 5 ball is in between the bindings. When video is viewed at more frames per second the video shows the ball inside ski. That girl is tough.

    @Booze Regina acknowledged that the dock starter gave her the confidence she needed to run it.
  • ScottScottScottScott Posts: 796 Crazy Baller
    Looked pretty close as to whether she got back in the buoy line, with line control. Surprised they gave her 4 1/2. 4 1/4 would have still been a new record.

    As good as Whitney and Manon are, makes Reginas dominance that much more impressive.
