Many of my students are trying to find an answer for the gates. Everyone knows that a wide tight-line gate with perfectly timed speed is the difference between making or missing your hardest pass. Of course, the real issue is having the confidence to combine all that when you need it the most. Aiming to [...]
Losing outbound direction right before the buoy (or turn if you're free skiing) is a common problem that will stop you from setting up your turns and movements well.
