    Jeezmon. Next time, at least have the courtesy to make it LOOK difficult!

    At least I can feel better about myself by calling a zero on the gate! :) #RussianJudge

    @Than_Bogan he doesn't worry about gates in practice he told me, but will clean it up the week before a tournament. there's probably end course available of that pass if someone cared to go look. Hilltop has top notch TC. great skiing @AdamCord

    @RichardDoane I've skied with Cord a bit when he was on the East Coast, and I know he dials gates later. Just harassing him while being incredibly impressed.

    @6balls Y'know, I think you're right. I've heard of a few people getting into 41 with the ski I have but I've never heard of anyone running it with that ski. I think that's the only reason why I'm not running it because it can't be because I suck at skiing. It HAS to be the ski. ;)

    Seriously, way to go @AdamCord. That was quite an achievement. You're part of a pretty elite club now.



    I can take anything apart

    @AdamCord - gates or no gates that is some seriously impressive skiing !!

    The No Name Record at the end of July will be awesome. David out TC has been working on the site for over a year and everything is dialed! The lake skis really good!

    @AdamCord I actually noticed your gate looking like it had more (way more?) downswing speed vs past videos you’ve posted. What changed per Caldwell’s advice??

    Am I the only one curious as to what happened @ 43?

    @LakeOneSkier swipe left on the video or click the little arrow.

    Some people have asked me to send them the raw video so they can watch slomo so I went ahead and uploaded to YouTube.

    Missed gates and driver came way over on 6, otherwise I think it looks fairly legit. I won’t get to ski again for a week because of work so will be a while before I can try and back it up:

    @AdamCord
    Bit of a tangent here (maybe literally) –
    But by “too much speed and angle”; do you mean too much velocity or too much angle (load) with perceived excess speed?
    Assuming the ideal path at ridiculously short-line is extremely constricted, is there an optimal angle (approximate range) creating optimal (not necessarily maximal) velocity (isn’t the objective to minimize time to centerline unchanged)? Is your time to centerline on the gate actually slower or is the path just “covering less ground” (given the same staring position up on the boat) to get there?
  • HortonHorton Posts: 31,482 Administrator
    @matthewbrown the trick is to go in front of the gates.

    @Horton that comment probably deserves a panda or two, but I know you are joking otherwise that would get 3 pandas.
