    The man could balance a glass full of your favourite beveridge on his head on that pass. Wow.

    That ski looks wider than standard in the front.

    I love watching Parrish ski. He is LFF like I am and while I am not 6'5" he makes everything look simple from a technique standpoint.

    Has Parrish always been a rear toe looper....I didn't think he was. He is in that video.

    Hadn't noticed the toe loop -- nice catch. Perhaps skiing with Andy he's been converted to the cult of TL (my preferred ski method).

    I think Parrish has dabbled with a rear boot I seem to remember him in a Wiley rear at one point but I recall him primarily as a looper. Out of the top skiers how many are loopers right now. I know Asher and Desgaspari are.

    @Chef23...This video had me wondering the same thing...

    Andy Mapple
    Will Asher
    T-Gas
    Nate Smith
    Chris Parrish (apparently..now)

    I'm sure there are some more...

    Nate Smith runs a rear TL.

    What I find interesting is that his hands are right on top of each other as he is pulling out for the gate. Once he initiates his turn in for the gate, he slides his left hand over to the other side of the handle. I first noticed this on the webcast at Moomba but could not see it as well as on this video. Any ideas of why he does this or the benefit?
  • MattPMattP Posts: 6,012 Mega Baller
    Parrish set his world record with a rear Wiley. He has switched to a toe loop recently.

    @ski4xtc Also notice that on his pull out he has the handle vertical and his hands are above the center of the handle. Does anybody else hold the handle vertical on their pullout? Not sure if I am seeing it right but he does not seem to change the attitude of his shoulders to the boat once he counters for the buoy goes through the turn and is then releasing for the next buoy. As always he makes it look so effortless.
    Not sure I know what I am doing. The boat goes I follow. Trying to perfect the deep water start. Squirrel!

    First thing I noticed is that ski looks wide as hell in the forebody.

    @ShaneH CP is a big big man and he rides a big ski.

    I thought the same thing. Those guys did design an awesome ski. To be that consistent both ways through the course is amazing!
  • Ntq206Ntq206 Posts: 78 Baller
    Such an amazing skier. Just watch his backwards pass, and he somehow maintains so much angle out of the ball without sticking the rear tip in and catching a digger.

    ;)
  • HortonHorton Posts: 28,095 Administrator
    Mapple spent a long time working on that backwards design

    I wish I could even kinda get my hip forward into the turn like that.

    I got to both see Parrish from the boat (boat judge) and drive a round for him this weekend. I must say, the timing on when he moves the hand down on the handle is interesting as it is in the middle of the rotation for the gate just before he loads the line. What a treat to see first hand! While he didn't run a 41 this weekend (I believe the scores were 3.5, 3.5, and 4.0 all at 41), it's obvious he's getting more and more confortable on the new ski and will be running them regularly. Every set, he looked as though he would run the pass. I'm sure at least one person was videoing from shore (no boat camera), so I hope to see that surface soon.
