At just 21, Nate Smith is doing what most guys take decades to figure out, if they ever do. He knows how to use the boat to maximize his performance, which is one reason he’s run 41 off eight times this year. Smith times his cross-course attack perfectly with Zero Off, reducing the boat’s surge and allowing him to move freely into the turn in the most efficient manner. Watch him ski and you’ll immediately notice that he is always light on the handle and symmetrical on both sides of the course. He won all but one of the major events this summer, and we’d say Smith is well on his way to becoming one of the best skiers of all time. Checkout this video of him running 5 at 41 off at Imperial Lakes in southern California.
