" ... I want my shoulders, hips and everything else facing down course - square with the boat."
The photo (WSM P64-65) shows his onside pull, and he's doing what he says there. See attached picture of his offside. Not as "square with the boat".
I'm not arguing with what the mans says because what he's doing obviously works. But you clearly cannot implement this as well on your offside pull as your onside pull. For me this created asymmetry in the course. I had a deadly onside pull followed by a horrible offside pull.
I skied with Jodi Fisher and he tried to get me to keep my hips more pointed in the direction of the ski. Lots of things got better when I started concentrating on that. You just can't get in the same position on your offside pull as you can on your onside pull.
What are your thoughts on this?
