So I have always countered on my onside turn and let my hips/com drop towards the inside of the turn, leaving my shoulders open to the boat quite a bit, leaving my belly button facing down course as my ski tacks cross course. I always heard "slide into the turn"and come back to the handle which is what I did. I just got back from Jodi Fishers, and if you dont dont know, he focuses alot on position and squaring the hips to the ski. He wanted me to point my belly button in the ditrection my ski was traveling along with making a "T" with my shoulders to the ski. This seemed alot like the old stlye of skiing and not like any of the new techniques. However it did help my ski gain more angle than before, so there seems to be a misconception with how new techniques are to be used. He wanted me to counter into the turn and that's it. After the apex he wanted my shoulders closed and belly button with the ski which was very hard for me on my onside wake crossing.
