    There is a great picture of Terry Winter skiing behind his Outback in the most recent edition of WaterSki Mag.

    Nice to see.

    Go to the trickroom now. There is a link to click on that says learn to slalom. There are three clips there.

    I took a look. I had to chuckle... Terry showing learning to slalom and it looks like he is at 39.5 off... I guess if you are going to learn might as well start at the top...

    It did make for a better camera angle to be able to include the skier and the boat in the same image.

    Seriously - I always appreciate any time one of the pros takes the time to put anything out there that might help the rest of us.

    One question though. When he says you want your body 'in front' of the ski for a WCS turn, does anyone know what he means??

    Some people might interpret that as leaning forward - which is clearly wrong... Or are we just talking more weight transfer to the front foot? Knees more flexed and forward? Does 'in front' refer to body in relation the direction the ski is traveling, i.e, along the longitudinal axis of the ski, OR body in relation to the boat path, ie., down course regardless of ski direction?

    I read a while back when Jamie (or Marcus?) was talking about WCS and it sounded like it had it's roots in downhill skiing. In that case it is more a stable upper body down the fall line (parallel with the direction of boat?) which would require the 'counter rotation' that you hear so much about. But I don't see it as counter rotation of the upper body as much as an anti-rotation of the upper body? You let the ski and the lower body turn but you keep the upper body more open to the down-course path.

    I am very much an old school style so have no real basis to speak here. Just questions. I did try what I thought was WCS on a couple of strong side turns and the additional speed actually startled me - so I went back to old school.

    Maybe Gordon will straighten me out in April when we head down to Ski Paradise...

    What he actually means is that you want your body to lead your ski into the turn. You are right in assuming that you want your shoulders to remain counter (anti) rotated but you don't actually turn the ski you want to move your body "in front of the ski" in the direction you want to travel causing the ski to turn.

    BensonWdby.....when are you headed to Ski Paradise?

    Terry will be there the third week April.
    Can't wait to ski with him.....
