Hey-wondering if someone would mind helping with a ski adjustment....
</p>
<p>
My 69 SIXAM is bouncing at the finish of my offside turn and going into the wakes....it's like the tip is trying to engage but it's not quite...it's kind of shimmying...that's the best way i can describe it.  but it feels so awefully unstable as i begin back toward the wakes and at the finish.  HELP!  should i add tip?

    I agree.  I'm no fin expert, but when I was having offside bouncing, I moved the fin back, and it went away.

    Try the depth but if that does not work add some tip. Tip= drag. if you add a little drag that keeps the front of the ski better planted in the lake.

    Or you could mold a second tunnel into the front of the ski. A little Bondo goes a long way.
