I would like to see a rule that would allow a skier to "opt down" on their first pass. What I mean by this is to have a first pass scored at 6 buoys less than what is actually performed.
Example: I would like to go off the dock at 32 off and have it scored at 28 off. My second pass would again be 32 off and would be scored as 32 off. From there all passes score as normal.
Why: This would offer skiers more flexibility on their opening pass. I would personally go off the dock at 32 (scored as 28). This would allow me to run two 32 off passes before shortening to 35. It would allow me to avoid 28 off and would not negatively impact the event in any way that I can think of. As it is I go off the dock at 28 in most tournaments.
I can not be the only one who would like to have 2 passes at their preferred open pass as opposed to a longer or slower opener.
