Inspired to do some eights…

Spray in the sun!

Having watched lots of people do lots of figure eights a couple days before, my buddies and I were inspired to try some of our own. I had a tough time making through the first half of the eight, but was holding my position well until the driver realized he needed to tighten up the corner a little or he’d be too close to shore. When he tightened the turn, my cut was no longer enough to hold my spot and I was whipped through the bubbles.

I’ve posted some action photos that show me holding, holding, whipped… enjoy…

Photo 1: Starting the corner

Photo 2: Holding my spot in the corner

Photo 3: Whipped through the bubbles

As you can see in the last two photos, there is a definate difference the in radius shown by the bubbles. In photo 3 the bubbles are a lot tighter than photo 2. Needless to say, I’ll keep working on it, just need to find a better driver. Until then, I’ll blame the driver (just like any good skier does!)
