HeadZone Waterski Training Helmets--Crazy Good!

edited July 2012 in Technique & Theory
We recently received our first blind skier booking at the ranch...to say the least we were a little apprehensive.
We have heard of all the stuff people have used for blind skiers, horns whistles ect. and nothing made us feel comfortable pulling a blind skier on a slalom lake that has turn islands! So, in a conversation with a friend that had been to The Masters and saw the system, he suggested we research Headzone? (http://www.headzone.com/) We did... and before anyone thinks I work for them, or got one free--wrong-- we bucked up and bought the one helmet system. I'm here to tell you it was money well spent! It works great, not only for our blind guest but, we have used it on every guest on all lessons this week and the results are amazing! How many times at the end of the lake have you told someone to change or do something, only to have them tell you they forgot or don't know they are doing it? Have I made my case??? Real time coaching! The ability to tell the skier before or when the need to do or change something!!!!!
Is it for everyone no, I get that... but does it work? YES! I could go on, but I will spare you...if anyone has questions feel free to reach out and tell you what I know so far...from here on out it will be a standard here at the ranch!
Thanks all!

    HeadZone is an amazing coaching tool. I give it credit to some of the reason why my skiing has progressed as it has over the past year. Jodi Fisher has been using the product for many years now and has perfected a coaching style that integrates the helmet into a training program that will help any skier progress far faster than any other method. I have even used it on Jodi before, good times. I would love to have one in my possession to use at the lake.

    Matt, so glad someone out there has used it...too bad that it has been around this long and this is the first we had heard. We all spend so much money on other components, but struggle on the little coaching changes that can make such a big difference! I really am excited to see what we can get people to do with this cool gadget---Stay Tuned! :)

    I have also used it, not wearing it but as the coach. It is absolutely the coolest thing out there for coaching. Especially for teaching people how to ski. There is no better way. I believe most people can benefit from this product, even though you look dorky wearing it, and everyone initially hates it, they all end up loving it.
