This is the ideal body position at the start of the edge change. Notice how well Nate keeps his elbows close to his body as the ski begins its arc off the second wake. This superior position is a result of a stacked and progressive pull out of the turn. If you go too hard too soon with your weight back, the boat will get the best of you during the edge change, and you'll be pulled narrow into the buoy. Nine times out of ten, skiers are heavy on their back foot out of the turn.
