Some Tips For Beginners
Stretch out Before and after you go on the water, have a good stretch, concentrating on your back, arms and legs. It’s even more vital afterward because water skiing uses those parts of your body very intensively.
Get up slowly By far the most common beginner error is trying to stand up too quickly when the rope starts to pull.
Start in the water with your knees bent right up to your chest, arms dead straight and outside your knees. As the rope starts to pull, keep your arms straight and slowly start to stand.
Keep your shoulders level and the rope between your skis.
Stand upright Once you’re up, your head should be directly over your feet. It’s a bit like rollerskating: if you lean too far back, you’ll immediately fall over backward; too far forward, and you’ll go flat on your face.
Eyes up Always look ahead, either at the horizon or at the boat; looking down at your skis will unbalance you. If you feel yourself losing balance and falling, let go of the rope – don’t try to hold on and get dragged along. Don’t worry, you will float – you’ll be wearing a life jacket.
Start to carve Once you’re confident going in a straight line, you can start to carve left and right behind the boat, and really pick up speed. To cross the boat’s wake, absorb the bumps with your knees by keeping them loose and slightly bent.
Use your weight Keep your weight evenly distributed between both feet. To turn, don’t lean, but put more weight on one ski – to turn right, put pressure on your left ski and vice versa to turn left.
Point your body and hips in the direction you want to travel.
Lift your foot As you become more proficient, you can start to lift one ski out of the water and practice skiing one-legged. This enables you to progress on to a mono-ski, which allows for faster carving. On a mono-ski, your feet will be one behind the other – the front foot is in a binding while the back one is inserted into a loop.
Change your grip If you start using a mono-ski, change your grip on the rope handle. On two skis, the handle will be horizontal and you’ll grip with both hands.
For mono-skiing, rotate the handle so that it’s vertical, and place one hand on either side.
Use your skills If you snow ski, you can expect to pick up water skiing faster than most, because you’ll already know how to balance.
