This weekend I called Greg Badal to confirm fin and binding settings for the A2. I set the ski up as he suggested... but being stubborn I chose to leave the wing off for the first set. That did not work. It is a good thing I do not have to review the ski without a wing.
Second ride was with wing: Much better. Now we can get down to understanding the ski. The A2 is very different from the other skis that I have ridden so far this year so it is going to take a few rides to really learn something.
For now I can say that the A2 seems to demand that I keep my shoulders up approaching off side. The ski also seems to want me to ski aggressive.
23 rides to go ….
