A question was posed on the 15off forumÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â wether or not to learn the course at a moreÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â normal boat speed (30 - 34 mph) or at a slower boat speed (26-28).
One argument says that skis aren't designed to work at that speed, so form could suffer...the other argument says excessive speed hurts form.
So, if someone is learning the course (15 - 22off) should they a) buy a top end ski, and b) should they ski at a slower speed until they can complete the pass?
I currently ski on an '06 O'Brien Evidence - which I purchased not knowing it would get a good reveiw in the recreational review.
However, my buddy managed to pick up an '06 Monza for dirt cheap (now sitting in my basement) and is trying to persuade me to makeÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â a change.
I'm currently 15off at 28mph and my response to himÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â is that my form is the issue - not the ski.
What say you?
 - sorry if this belongs in technique and theory category
