Hi Lane,

Thanks for your information. I really enjoy reading your articles and love the philosophy and quotes.

Have you covered 360 surface turns. I hope to work on them during the Australian off season. I am currently doing 3 of the 4 180's and will also work on my reverse front to back and 1 foot turns. I love shoe skies but I want to be on my feet.

Keep up the good work.

Regards,

Todd

Lane, if this article is too advanced for where you currently are, then hang tight because I will cover everything from the very beginning of your barefoot with articles such as The Easiest Way to Learn to Barefoot Water Ski (http://www.thefootersedge.com/equipment/info/ne18.htm )to Jumping Inverted (http://www.thefootersedge.com/equipment/info/ne24.htm ) at http://www.thefootersedge.com/equipment/articles_listed.html. If there is an article I have not covered that would be of particular help to you, email me directly at lane@lanedawg.com

But for those of you, for whom this is a relevant topic, you are part of an elite rebel force!

What is required here as a foundation which I have covered extensively. It is like a riddle in which I have given you all of the clues, AND NOT TOO SUBTLY I might add.

For you to be ultra successful, you will need to be more than just tough, you will need to be stealthy and surgical in your approach. I like to think of my training approach as being similar to the way the Green Beret's would map out a sorte' or mission. We are going in knowing that there is danger. We know that the wrong steps will lead to pain. We know that it is better to win the war than every individual battle. We also love the odds because the right plan will lead to victory in an arena that many will never enter!

Here is a list of articles that are mandatory reading. If you are not proficient in your front-to- back and back-to-fronts, then this is not a trick for you! The real KEY to learning the front-to-front 360 is improving your basic turns.

#1 The Front to Back http://www.thefootersedge.com/equipment/info/ne15.htm

#2 The Back to Front http://www.thefootersedge.com/equipment/info/ne33.htm

#3 The Power Band and Squeezing http://www.thefootersedge.com/equipment/info/ne6.htm

One of the big hints is to perfect the 360 with the techniques that I will outline for you!

The best help I can give you in performing 360 surface turns that are smooth and without hesitation is to concentrate on really clean and effortless 180's. The better your front to back is, the less time you will need to recover once you arrive in the back position, and the sooner you will be able to turn back to the front.

I like to concentrate on a great first turn that is slow and has a great squeeze. As I mentioned before, practicing with a small Gatorade bottle in between your legs will help tremendously! The further apart your legs are, the more difficulty you will have!

After a slow front-to-back with a great Power Band finish, the handle will be right by your belt and easy to grab. I recommend having your free hand follow your imaginary belt line all the way to the back position. As soon as your hand gets the handle, release the other hand and allow the boat to pull you around.

The biggest mistake you can make after completing the front-to-back, is to rush the back-to-front. As with any turn, it is paramount that the upper body remains quiet until the lower body turns.

Remember my patented Clock Theory of Turns. Do not let your head come around the clock!

I also find that I have to think very hard about Squeezing! Not only is it important in my legs, but in my elbows. I try to keep my elbows close to my ribs during the entire rotation. The further away my elbows get, the more distorted my Posture gets during the turn!

And finally, VISION RULES!!! If you cannot keep your eyes open and on the horizon throughout the turn, then you will seriously distort your body and ruin a good handle pass!

I hope this helps you, Lane! This same info works on The Puppy Paws (Shoe-skis) as well as on your feet! Let me know if this helps you and good luck in achieving your goals!

If you are interested in skiing the last week of July, email me today by replying to this email as I only have one slot available!

Expect a Miracle!
