Hey Ballers. One of the biggest problems I am dealing with is staying too straight and rigid coming thru the wakes after the turn. I am generating plenty of speed between balls, but I am keeping my front knee too straight and not compressing my body as I come across the wake. My crashes are not pretty--almost every wreck is between the balls when I am coming over the top of the ski and kissing the tip. The wrecks are starting to cause damage, and I need to get this fixed. I am working on keeping the front knee bent more and absorbing the wake, and as we are getting close to the off season, I will have to work on it out of the water. Here is my question:
I would love some input from you guys on how you absorb the wake and how you go with it instead of fighting against it. I would also so love if some of you could post a video or picture on proper body position you should have as you go through the wakes. I have installed a ski handle and rope in my garage to simulate skiing behind the boat, and I would love to practice the exact position I should be in thru the wake crossing. Any help would be much appreciated.
Finally, I am now able to get thru the course at 15 off at 32mph and I am trying to set some realistic yet challenging goals for next year. Skiing 2 sets, 3 times per week, what would be a goal I should be looking at hitting for next year? Thanks in advance.
I ski, therefore I am
