What's Nate's weight distribution here?

I know it's hard to pinpoint a particular moment in the slalom run, but humor me. I think this is a very cool shot of Nate and got to wondering, what's his front/back foot weight distribution here? He's apparently picked up the load and is ready to head across the course. Is his weight distrubution 60/40, 50/50, 40/60 front/back foot? I would be interested in your thoughts/opins. And does it differ crossing the opposite direction?

    I like the position in relation to the banner behind him.

    I would hazard that he is progressing forward over the ski, the change in his spray kind of looks like he had to make a move somewhere prior to that picture

    I think that is a hard camera angle to judge from and one wake crossing does not equal his style.

    Weight distribution is tricky, because it is determined by the pull of the boat and the skiers intent, and may not be totally obvious. For example, there are portions of the pull where you may have significant weight or pressure on the front foot even though the skier's body appears to be behind the bindings.
