  • Today is a gift, so ski. No promise of more.
It is very hard for me to make anything out with the distortion in that video. Could you post another one please. I think the engine vibration through the pylon is messing with your phone. Try to get someone to hold it by hand.

I would suggest to him to mentally project himself to an earlier target. If a skier thinks about getting just to the buoys, they often ski narrow.

Tell him it is sort of like shooting a free throw in basketball. We do not throw the ball straight at the basket. We throw it up into an arc to fall into the basket. The same idea makes for a more successful slalom run. We want to make an arc before the buoy. That should be done on the inside edge of the ski. Which means, we have to get good acceleration into the wake so we can cast the ski into that wide early arc.

I look forward to another more clear video.

Very consistent skier!

I would have him drop his lead hip down to the water more trying to get the gap between his hip/thigh and handle to a couple inches behind the boat. He tends to stand up a little soon at the wakes, so doesn't get as much runout and width as he could.

Elbows glued to the sides of the vest, lean away (not back) and aim to get the handle to touch the hip. Could start a little wider also..

Good skiing none the less!
