    Hey Lane. Great advice!! I can picture what you are describing. I just need more practice to lock things down. My wife learned to drive for back deep as I learned to get up backwards! It was humorous to say the least. I never hurt myself either! Your past videos along with a few other contributors on YouTube helped us back then. I wish I could have watched this years ago as it is the best full description of what needs to happen (skier and driver)!

    Oh, and “as easy as hunting at the zoo’ has to be the funniest description. I literally laughed while sitting at the bar tonight!

    I DO have a question though. I recall learning all this with no clear description of what to do with my knees. When I have my legs splayed out at 10-12mph, my knees are pretty straight (I think). When I rotate my feet, I THINK I bend my knees a bit at the same time. Is this correct?

    Great video. Could you further explain the advantage for a bigger person (190+) to use a front toe handle for the long line back deep? You started to explain it but then got on a different subject. God Bless!

    • Lane Bowers February 21, 2020 at 5:25 pm - Reply

      Hey there, Bruce. Sorry for the late response. I did not see your post until now.

      A big barefooter has more width. Ideally, a wider handle would make a big difference, but since there is not currently a wider handle than 15″, the next best solution is using a front toe handle because it gives more room in between the handle and the rope as it narrows into one piece coming from both ends.

      If I help both the 15-in slalom handle and a front toe handle, you would see how the stiffeners and length of the stiffeners leave more room for bigger hands which can help to keep them from getting pinched.

      In addition, for the big barefooter learning a back deep water start, for example, taking one or two fingers outside the handle allows for more room for the body which can make bending over to get up much easier.

      Does that make sense?

      The steadfast love of the Lord never ends. His mercies (unmerited, undeserved, and unearned favor) are new (completely unique and custom made never before seen!) every morning. Great is His faithfulness!
