Whether you are a career free-skier or a course skier looking to expand your terrain, slack line can be a troubling issue. Luckily, the causes are few and relatively easy to fix.
• Avoid overloading the line as you approach the wakes. Increasing your lean as you swing into the wakes will only increase line tension, making it more difficult to maintain your outward direction past the second wake.
• Feel equal pressure through both arms on your way into the wakes. This will keep your chest facing down the lake and your weight moving with your direction of travel.
• Ensure you are not pulling too long. Allow your ski to release as you come off the second wake.
• Keep your lead arm relaxed and long as you change edges. Pulling in with your biceps during this phase will force you over top of your feet too quickly, tip you toward the boat and cause your ski to rapidly change direction.
