Seems slalom skiers are a quirky bunch (at least some of the guys I've skied with!).
While I won't 'out' my ski crew I'll share a few of mine.
-I always face the same direction on the swim grid getting my ski on. Nothing superstitious, but I'd probably fall in the water if I tried the other way!
-I always start with the rope on the left side of my ski (odd for a left foot forward?)
-always squeeze the water out of and adjust the Velcro on my mitts if there is enough setup time between getting up and skiing.
-up until about a year ago, I HAD to get my hair wet before trick skiing. Even when doing a dock start I'd hop in the water before getting my ski on, and then climb back onto the dock to start!!
(I'm sure there are others I'm not even aware of, but you will have to ask my crew about that!)
Anyone else care to share some quirks of their own or their crew? I know I'm not the only one!!
