    Get higher on the boat before you turn in for gate, you are way back, the boat is already going away from you before your ski has had chance to turnround one, so you get pulled up towards the boat and can not get angle or a position against the boat to drive across, basically you are always going to play catchup, unless you get higher on the boat.

    You talk about getting higher on the boat.. how do i do that??

    Point the ski outbound with your knees and ankles, you will get higher on the boat without the speed, if you just lean longer you will create too much speed and end up like a Yo Yo when you turn in for the gate.

    You need to get video at another time. The lighting is keeping me from seeing clearly what is happening. Try on your offside raising your handle. It will keep your sholdur up.

    You are skiing with too much back foot pressure. Your posture and balance while you are gliding waiting to turn in for the gates is good. Lots of ski in the water and standing tall. Maintain that posture and balance as you turn in for the gates and work hard to keep it the rest of the pass. Going to your back foot is a security thing for you that you will have to work hard to let go of. It takes practice and concentration because we would all rather fall on our *** than our face and when you first start practicing it you will be out of your comfort zone.
