    @E_T He can run 41 on almost anything, I've seen him do it.

    @MS optional, nice catch.
    Not sure I know what I am doing. The boat goes I follow. Trying to perfect the deep water start. Squirrel!

    Wow, and that's not the smoothest water ever. He's soooo freakin' early at the ball...incredible!

    Nice off-side turns.

    Ya, if you let me miss the gates like that I can run it too . . .

    He missed but barely - who cares, awesome skiing. His 1,3,5 are pretty spectacular

    I thought the gates were good, I was thinking nice swerve
  • ozskiozski Posts: 1,664
    I'm amazed that people continue to zoom in on his gate... His two / four onside turn is still not working that well and he's still running it, much the same as when he first rode the green Quest out here in November and ran 41.

    His offside angle is unreal. Maybe that makes up for the onside turn.

    Gates? Your questioning that when the boat path resembled that of a snake?
  • matthewbrownmatthewbrown Posts: 431 Open or 55K Rated Skier
    @MillerTime38‌ .....exactly! Of course he could still run it with a reverse weave
  • ToddLToddL Posts: 2,823 Mega Baller
    So, this is what aggressive at the white water at the gates is supposed to look like...image
    dang...

    @matthewbrown you always catch it.

    The kid can clearly run 41 almost at will. Who ever shot the video has to know it is going to get scrutinized. It sort of makes Nate look bad when there is no need. Nate does not need a wacky path to run it.

    Still crazy insane great skiing but from what I can tell not even class C acceptable driving.

    (Impressive driving skills but not legal.)

    by the way I give him the gates. Looks close-ish and I think he hit the ball but can't tell.

    @ToddL‌ hit what I think is Nates key. I think I rewound and watched that pull out and gate shot 50 times. There is something about his that few if any others can match. My 2cents.

    Give me a gate like that, and I'll still blow 32 off!
  • Texas6Texas6 Posts: 2,197
    I agree @[email protected] - there is tremendous angle generated prior to the white water. Notice he got that last second hitch pullout prior to turning in for the gate. That seems to be his MO at that length

    I tried that this morning. It did work. Ok, only once...but I think felt something along the lines of the ski actually going left out from under my hips (subtle but there) while my hips on up moved right. This vs just gliding forward and moving to the right. Hook up came earlier but progressive. But, the more I tried it, the more I kept screwing it up. There is something to it I think.
