Here's a clip of my 35 off yesterday at the Georgia State Championships. This is probably the craziest recovery I've ever made. I'm just glad my wife caught it on camera!

    My European ski partners call that the "Bow to the Queen". THAT was some serious bowing!! Way to respect the Queen!! Great score!!

    First photo shows my ski almost completely out of the water. Second photo is a full "bow"

    @webdawh99 add about .005 to the fin depth and that should solve that problem.

    Seriously sometime you just need to hang on!! Way to never give up!! Nice score!

    @klindy What would that adjustment do?
  • tbrenchleytbrenchley Posts: 120 Open or 55K Rated Skier
    I don't think a ski adjustment is needed unless you have that problem every pass....looks like you just took a bigger turn than you should have, but way to fight for the pass!

    A fin adjustment at this point would be an insult to the Queen.

    Yea. I'm happy with the way the ski is setup. That was 100% skier mistake. If it happened consistently, then Id consider an adjustment.

    It was a joke @webdawg99. Only change to make is keeping your shoulders up a bit more! :)

    I was summoning my inner @detrick. I've seen that guy hold on to some stuff that makes this look like child's play!

    Wish I had taken some Photos of @MS when I was there. Geeeez he hangs onto some stuff.

    Here's what I was looking for. CRAZY RECOVERY!

  • klindyklindy Posts: 2,346 Mega Baller
    haha - Good one @webdawg99. I remember that one very well. I was on the tower when he did that and said something like "Holy S*%@!!!!, Ummmm...Tower 1, 2-1/2!" on the radio.

    @Wish I guess I am a damn brit, cause I not only do I bow to the queen, but most of the time I go ahead a completely kiss the ground she walks on! I am the friggin king of otf's.....errrrrrr worshiping the queen on my face.
    @webdawg99 Incredible recovery man, especially because you knew what would happen had you not made it. awesome!!
    I ski, therefore I am

    @webbdawg99 I bet the boat driver and judges faces were interesting when you took that pull. Nice one, where is the fun in letting go.

    Awesome skiing by @webbdawg99 this weekend. We all thought he had 38 in the bag. I was not as fortunate...

    Thanks @Bruce55! Now I just need you down here to straighten me back out!

    @Danspence The boat judge came up to me afterwards with a big smile on his face. He walks up, shakes my hand, and thanked me for the entertainment.

    @MattP Let's ski soon!
  • MattPMattP Posts: 6,060 Mega Baller
    @webbdawg99 for sure! It's been way to long! Ill teach you some more of my crazy recovery techniques.

    Quote of the day from Greg Badal this weekend: "If you have rope, you have hope".

    It is kind of fitting for that recovery. Good job @webbdoqg99

    What's the problem? That looks like me at every wake crossing. I'm available for clinics on the "linked spackle".

    It wasn't in a tournament and of course I didn't make the course as you will see my backslide around 6 ball but I'd put my 2 ball up against just about anyone. PS this was 38 off at 36 mph

    @tbrenchley You're lucky you ski with a chiropractor
