THE TOE SIDE SLIDE
The toe side slide is worth 130 points in competition. Begin by facing the boat in the basic toe position (
Keep the ski leg bent slightly and rotate the leg perpendicular to the direction of travel to perform the slide as shown in Photo 2. For the left foot forward skier rotation is counterclockwise looking down. This is the side slide to an open stance. Balance here is touchy since the ski is more slippery so stand over the
ski a little more than in the ski forward position. Return to the basic toe position as shown in Photo 3.
Then rotate the ski leg the opposite direction to get credit for the reverse (Photo 4). This is the side slide to the closed stance which is a little harder since the hips rotate slightly more. Return to the basic toe position and collect a total of 260 points.
