Maximizing Buoy Count with Trick Ski

LuzzLuzz Posts: 468 Open or 55K Rated Skier
During the great Ski Freeze or Die competition yesterday, I opted for turning buoys on a trick ski. I managed to get [email protected] at 21.1mph, which gave me as an Open Men a surprising high buoy count of 74.5, equaling (if I understand this correctly) [email protected] 36mph.

What do you think is the max buoy count one could get on a trick ski? No fin added, having to make the gates… so "legit" trick slaloming.

I can see myself handling faster speeds up until 38off, but at 39off you need to start using the zig-zag technique, so I am not sure you can go too fast.
