    Philipos is a very solid slalom skier! He came to ski some events at our site over the years and he is not afraid of turn'n'burn!

    9.75m looks more like 10.25m, If so and it,s 2 Ball did he get around 3 ball, if it was 4 Ball then that would be amazing.
    Even @ 10.25m that is what I would consider awsome skiing.

    I see a lot of ski on the water at on side. That is something I think I really need to work on. I also see a ROCK tight line. I do not know anything about the skier but dude can ski.

    He is a solid skier, tpb into 41.
    I'm going to ski at his place in a few weeks.

    Looks awesome. Would like to see following pics of him coming back to the handle and what was probably insane angle.

    I can't tell how short the line is, but it's very short. Waaay up on the boat and as @Horton said really tight line.

    Note the left arm being pulled back to keep his chest countered. I try to hit this position, but old turn and burn habits are hard to get rid of.

    Obviously a short line based on his position relative to the boat. But it also appears that the ski is starting it's arc back in. Meaning he's ahead of the buoy and it's arcing in, still with a tight line.

    I have watched him from the boat a few times, great skier with a big future! Last time I was in the boat last Autumn, he run [email protected] in a head tail and a bit choppy conditions.
