    @Horton @Deanoski yeah, that’s the magic setup:

    6.929
    2.535
    DFT (does it really make a difference after those first 2 numbers??)
    Wing prob 11 or a bit more.

    Shoulda taken a “try new things often” page from Will’s playbook much earlier in my career...

    So @MarcusBrown 6.930 or 2.536 was just too much?

    @MarcusBrown The flow point videos are all very well done. It's super cool that you bring content like this to skiers everywhere.

    @Dano Thank you.

    Getting this FlowPoint Method podcast off the ground, so interested in what ski-specific topics you all would you like to hear more of...?

    @MarcusBrown - love this podcast. Keep it up!

    I have a couple ideas for future podcasts.
    1. Not everyone on this forum is skiing shortline, but so many of us want (need) to get there (or at least the next line length). Let’s say there are three keys (body position, handle location, vision etc) to success at a particular line length: 15off and 22off, 28off and 32off, 35off and 38off, 39off and better. What three keys are there to each line length and how do they build upon one another as a skier progresses?
    2. What ski design/profiles compliment a particular skiing style?
    3. This touches a little bit on what you and Will Asher spoke about on this podcast, but how can you best determine what setup (ski, fin, binding combo, etc) and technique compliment a skier regardless of ability level. Maybe put another way, what attributes during a ski run make you think “AH HA, that is what I want to do when I approach the gate,buoy,wake,turn etc”
