How to Avoid Offside Blowout
Keep your ski moving in the direction you want to go. To accomplish this, three important things must happen:
1. Keep your entire body and ski traveling outbound from the wakes to the apex of the turn. Any loss in outbound direction tends to give you uncontrollable speed coming into the turn, such that the instinctual move at the buoy is to rotate and reach for the handle.
2. Bring the inside hip forward in the approach to the apex of the turn. This will position the inside hip over the inside leading edge of the ski so your center of mass can move through the turn in the desired direction of travel. This inhibits the instinctual body response to rotate through the turn.
3. Maintain your countered position through the finish of the turn, trusting your stance over the inside edge of the ski will create a carving, accelerating turn. By doing this, you use the design of the ski to create a carving turn rather than forcing the ski to turn by weighting the tip and sliding the tail.
