I'm pretty much a recreational skier hitting the course maybe a couple times a year by coincidence. Right now I'm just working on feeling and looking good on the water. I've got a bit of a problem that I hope some of you guys have heard before: I have a hard time crossing the wakes.
I ski behind a newer SeaRay with a fairly small wake, probably about a foot tall.
Every time I approach the wake fast, I tend to flatten out in an effort to slow down.
When I do go across the wake fast I become very unstable and crash, usually over the front on the way down the second wake.
This is amplified crossing the wakes to my left (right foot forward). If I get any sort of air, my body tries to twist the ski.
Is there anything you guys did to help overcome this? It's really the only thing that's keeping me from being a good skier.
