A lovely afternoon at Syliva Lake with Szilvia Nemthne & Gabor Nemeth

After a second generous invite to train on Gabor Nemeth man-made slalom canal next to Water World Jade Beach, because of strong 60 kilometer wind and storms, we have still been able to train the student and myself for the Nautique Big Dawg World Tour presented by O'Brien Waterskis.  The canal is quiet narrow for sure and takes a few passes to get used to the width and closeness of the shore, but you soon settle and the water skis amazingly. The shore is lined with thick reeds that not only absorbs all boat wake and creates zero back wash, but also provides a pretty nice crash barrier for if you were to crash crossing the wakes and were to slide out wider the the buoy line.  Even with a rippin wind the canal was relatively smooth and the trees around the lake were bending over with the wind gusts.  Then it was Gabor the Bugger Guy to start the grill and cook up probably some of the best buggers Iv tasted in a long time. The thickest juiciest and tastiest burgers you can imagine with all supper fresh toasted buns and trimmings. Followed by some of Szilvia's home backed Brownies! A few days ago we had home made Tiramsu which was out of this world. Let me tell you we needed to ski again to burn the calories, but moving normally was not easy!  Thank you you once again Szilvia and Gabor for your amazing hospitality and training at your Paradise.  Cant wait to return again in summer 2018

Thursday at Water World and Jade Beach June 29th

The weather is a little more challenging today with rain and strong cross wind in the course, but still we will train. You can control the weather in a tournament and of course not also in training so we must train. It not that bad, but even if it was whitecapping rough, you should train even if you have the drop the speed a few Kilometers.

Wednesday morning training at Water World

Another great morning on the water at Water World Budapest, Leo Max and Marco have been improving nicely. Leo Zentai is working on alignment and distributing his weight equally between his feet in order to get better instant and natural acceleration from the ankle set at the finish of the turn rather than the current way he builds speed by progressively pulling long across the wakes and carry speed. This is a very common issue in slalom caused by the natural stance of the body wanting to stand off to the side of the center of the ski. Leo is right foot forward and his body naturally wants to face 35 degrees to the left side of his ski. All slalom skiers have to create an alignment in their stance just like a Gymnast standing on a balance beam or a tightrope walker on a high wire. With the course being equal width on both sides and the buoys being spaced equally apart, it makes sense that we work from a more neutral stance that does not favor one side of the ski. Alignment with the center of the ski is best learned out of the course and not just inside between entry and exit gate.  In Waterskiing we don't get much water time actually like you can train in other sports. So it's important to maximize the whole time the ski is on your foot, sitting in alignment in the water rather than laying off to one side of your ski. Learn to balance in the water with your ski straight upright and with your front knee and belly button and core in alignment with the center of your ski!  It not to easy at first but will pay off in you being able to stand on your ski with alignment when just in a resting state of standing. Only then can you find the correct alignment stance in its neutral form when riding your ski in the course.  Why is this important?  Because it's where all the things that you need to ski to produce is created from this neutral stance. Balance. Power, Acceleration Deceleration, Angle, Width in the course, natural Speed which is needed for getting the speed current in the pull zone on the Pendulum.
