    Mrs Z - Wow! That's great! And I know how you feel. Heart rate's up a few beats and it takes a few minutes to haul yourself into the boat. Keep up the good work. - Deerfield

    Thank you guys. That last pic made me laugh too! I didn't know he took it!

    Sled, where is my coaching? Are we going to have to drag you down here so you can ride in the boat and yell stuff at me like "Turn NOW!" and "PUUULLLL!"

    Freakin computer, I had this whole 3 paragraph answer for you and my computer lost connectivity. So here I go again.

    Bottom line is that your form is fine. From a few still pics you can't see timing. There are a few refinements that are basically strength related. Your hands could be a little closer to your hips and tighter to the body, but really not that bad. Shoulders could be a bit more square to the boat, but again not too much. Body angulation is good head is looking forward at the ball not the water or your feet, all looks way better than your average recreational skiier, heck way better than Mrs Sled.

    Problem is that we share ski time with the next generation of super stars, little Z and Miss Z. And we are willing to spend most of our rec time working with them because that becomes recreation for us. Your body reacts as it has been trained to by years of working on your form and muscle memory much like your TKD keeps you doing the right things at the right time. Problem is the strength that comes with pass after pass does not get there. I'm not near as strong as I used to be when I was a grunt in the field.

    I think it's a form of fanity that keeps us trying to be the skiers we were a few years ago, thinking why can't I do this? Nothing has changed! But really time changes all. Plus skiing is way more difficult and physical to do well than any other water sport. I have a T shirt that I wear that says "If it were easy it would be called Wakeboarding".

    "Shoulders could be a bit more square to the boat"

    Sled - What does it mean to be square to the boat? - Deerfield
