"Eliminating Those Brutal...
Out-of-Nowhere...
Ghost Falls"

Winter Haven, Fl

back to Trauma Center

Yes, I am Tired of falling when I thought I was skiing in great form.
Yes, I am sick and tired of getting knocked around every time I ski into the wake either forwards or backwards!
I am Sick and Tired of Making my Front-to-Back or Back-to-Front and then Getting Yanked 'Out the Back' or 'Out the Front.'

 

 

“When the time to perform arrives, the time to prepare has past.”-Unknown artist

“True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind and exercise of the body; the two are united.”-Alexander von Humboldt

“The key to safe and rapid acceleration of the learning process comes from understanding that your mind doesn't’t recognize the difference between the muscle memory developed on the land and that developed on the water.”-Lanemus Maximus


“Lane,

As you may already know, I am president of the Lane Bowers fan club here in Central Texas. I have both videos, your Internet book, and I even cut out copies of your articles from Waterski Magazine and bind them. Yes I am anal, but it works for me.)

You teach the way I learn--simple basics and lots of repetition. The same way I learned to fly helicopters in the Army.

I laid off of back one foot slalom due to the "headers" and have finally committed to learning them on shoes first, then doing them on my feet. That is my goal this off season. I have made several one foot crosses,but they were suicide crosses rather than in control. Kept hopping off the table with a straight leg, and wham!

With the shoes, I am taking less falls, and able to find the sweet spot occasionally. Last Sunday, I made two crosses on my feet. Next set, I lost them again.

Boy can , and a lot of other people, relate to this problem. Infact, it is the exact same problem that causes footers to catchbackwards when they do a front to back, heel caching on backone foots, and even falling when you first learn to ride backwards.

This problem can be solved be understanding and then implementing the following leading edge technology;

Lane Dawg Bower’s Theory of Resistance

This information is so powerful that it is illegal in several Eastern block countries!

I want you to take the following test

What is the difference between the two pictures;

“resistance 1a”

resistance1a

vs.

"resistance 1b"

resistance1b

What is the difference? Is there anything noticeable or arethey basically the same positions?

NOW look at “resistance_2”the pictures

"resistance 2a"

resistance 2a

vs.

"resistance 2b"

resistance 2b

The first picture shows the rope going through a hook andis connected to a one gallon container of water that weighsroughly 7 pounds.

The other picture shows the same set-up connected to a cement curb that weighs about (I am guessing) 70 pounds.

Surprised? I hope you are because this dramatically illustratesmy ResistanceTheory of Back slalom.

Critical point; REISITANCE IS NOT BAD WHEN IT IS APPLIED FROM A GREAT BAREFOOT POSITION. Thismeans great posture, glide, and an awesome Power Band!

This is incredibly important to comprehend. The applicationof this info is now what will help your back one foot slalomshred like you are carving on ski or a snow board!

Great barefoot slalom needs three critical skills;

1. Position
2. Edge control
3. Resistance from the hips

What Mike and every other slalom aficionado needs is toincrease the pull (resistance) without deteriorating theposition. In other words ski like the position illustrated inthe second picture. This means you will have to load up against
the pull of the boat.

If I illustrated my point correctly, it should have been difficult to tell the difference between the first two pictures because it doesn't’t take straight legs, arm pulling, bending over more, or looking down into the water to increase resistance.

This is a very difficult concept to grasp. It is common for students to try all of the incorrect attempts above to increaseresistance. In addition, you need to maintain maximum foot area on the water by keeping a relaxed ankle. If you push on your toes (I call this ‘gas pedaling’) you not only lose surface areaon the water, but you will tend to “skip” your foot as you cross
the wake.

Here is what I recommend. First learn to compress in your longline back one foots on both sides of the wake using my Tigger the Tiger bouncy trouncy exercises which are listed inmy Trauma Center at http://www.thefootersedge.com/equipment/articles_listed.html

Next, learn to load before you start your slalom pass. The key here is to change your resistance from a normal resistance to one that is ready to hold a much heavier weight, like in my example in photo number two. Make sure once you load up with resistance, that youMAINTAIN your resistance.

If you set-u a rig like the one I did, use a bucket full of cement or something similar. If you do this correctly, your weight should remain very constant in its height as you dry land your slalom.

If your resistance gets less after you start your cross, you could catch,become unstable, or even hop off the second crest of the wake. It is also critical that you not lose position or resistance as you change direction in your transition.

KEEP THE BUCKET STEADY!
