Hi all--I am trying to work on learning how to ski efficiently. I am also working out being on a new ski, which is taking a little time. I have always skied the old school way of slowing down at the buoy and making a sharp turn. I have been able to avoid a lot of slack at the buoy this way by hitting the brakes on my approach to th buoy. I am now trying to maintain my speed at the buoy. So far, I have been getting a lot of slack due to my speed. Any thoughts on what to work on to lessen this problem? Maybe I am still turning too sharply?
