Finally running green.

I think the first time I ran -28 was fall of 2014. 2015 was a great season, ran a ton of 28 that season. Since then it's been one summer after another of basically pissing in the wind with my progress. Trying tons of new skis, fins, boots, settings, just kinda spinning my wheels and getting nowhere for 5 seasons, looking for quick fixes everywhere. For the 2020 season I added a ton of direction, mindset, and discipline (thanks @scoke ) to my previously fairly whimsical skiing approach. Results are showing. I have run 32 (34.2mph, ZO, etc.) the last 3 sets I've been out and the last two were right up the rope into 35 off the dock! 'Bout time! Let the fun begin.

    Great work.

    It's been fun watching you evolve this summer as you finally realized this was a mental sport and not a physical one while upgrading your approach.

    Not surprised either once it was obvious you actually started working at skiing versus falling in the typical mindsets of "it's just for fun" or "I don't take it seriously" while floundering around for the last 4 years not getting better.

    I believe in you. The real fun part is you're now becoming an actual skier instead of most who "just ski".

    I’ve been at the green loop wall all season. Care to share any specifics that got you over the hump? Should we start a thread like the 28 one and call it “what the heck is the deal with 32”?

    @C5Quest If you search "32 off" you'll find a few good threads discussing that pass. I need to go back are re-read them too.
