I am a half fast skier.
- Nov 12, 2015
Are we seeing fore and aft movement in the POV video where you can see the tips then not or is that compression and extension taking the camera up and down and the tips in and out of the frame? Cool either way.@LiquidFeet, this falls under one of my favorite videos for carving turns (Tomba ski SL, and of course Stenmark all different era’s and equipment and as a result technique to match, yet all very similar)
What the video shows how early turns finish yet are still on the old edge. In some cases the turn is finished and the transition initiated prior to passing the gate. In others the line is very wide and high (longer but faster similar to motorsport lines). In skiing the secret is how much between turns you can spend going as straight down as possible while shedding as little speed as possible changing direction. Speed control is only used to stay with the limits of the skier.
Again, don’t over think things.
