Some time in the next month I am going to conduct the first BallOfSpray Interview. I think Terry Winter will be first.


What are your questions? I am going to conduct most of the interview from input I get from all of you.

    Great idea, how about Kristi Overton, Carl Roberge, with Mooba coming up maybe the Neville's?


     


    Looking forward to it,

    Questions for Terry,


    1.  Speed Control.  Obviously.


    2.  Do you see more or less Pro events for 2009.


    3.  Do you see a major Tour Sponsor coming back to the tour such as Budweiser?


    4.  Bindings.  What's your opinion?


     


     


    Thanks,


    Ken

    What skis has he competed on over the last few years  and the good bad points of each, or improvements of each  ?


     How does he go about adjusting binding placement and fin changes on a new ski.


     


    cheers

    Does he ride stock skis or does he request special skis?


    What kind of mental preperation does he do before sets in a tournament.


    What is his practice regiment, off season, in season?

    These are not meant to be antagonistic, just interested in the process because there seems to be a lot of movement lately.


    Is sponsorship the biggest driver for the pros, in terms of the skis they ride?


    Do you ride a ski from a sponsor, that might be courting you, before you switch rides?

    In his experience how much variability is there between the same skis as they come out of manufacturing?

    If you were to write a manual/manifesto on Terry Winter's approach to slalom skiing, what would be your main topics, subtopics, and possibly of summary of what you feel to be the most important section. be?


     


    for example:


     1. Getting Up


             a. Two skis


                   i. keep your arms straight


                   ii. even out the weight on both legs


              b. Slalom


                   i. bend you knees


                   ii. relax


                   iii. don't try to stand up too soon


    3. Turning


    4. Handle Control


    5. Building width


     etc...

    Nice interview.  Thanks.


     One thought when you conduct an interview with someone like Terry it would be nice to know what he is skiing on, what size it is and what he is using for boots.


    Keep them coming.
