#1 I ski and turn a lot differently when I have buoys to go around. Also, when I free ski at 28 off I dont get nearly as wide as I should.
#2 I ski great at 15 off, I had so much time before buoys 2-5 today that I asked my spotter "Did that look cool?" before the next turn, but Im not consistent at it and the amount of slack I leave gives me trouble.
#3 Falling on my right side is most prone to knocking the wind out of me. Its embarassing every time.
#4 Thinking about women will cause me to miss the entire course.
#5 Y'all werent lying about inboards and zero off. When I pull the boat slows from 34 to 30.
#6 Y'all werent lying about shortening the rope being 10 times harder. Every time I've missed at 15 off since the first time I've said "Pssht I can do this" at after 2 times at 22 off Im not so sure.
#7 skiing the course A LOT will cause me to build muscle memory and close the gap between the way I free ski and course ski.
