hi there,

since we recently had such an interactive discussion on tethered
swimming, i hope that i am not too far off bringing up the topic of
tethered skiing (water).

background:
^^^^^^^^^^
i ski with my right (dominant) leg behind my left leg. i can cut to the
left AND move to the left easier. my partner (dan), who ski's with his
left (non-dominant) leg behind his right leg can cut to the right AND
move to the right easier. in each case, as we move with our backs more
toward the water, the skiing is easier.

question:
^^^^^^^^
1. is there a (bio)mechanical reason (or any reason, for that matter) for
the apparent balance differences?

(** if i get any replies, they will be posted to the list in about a week **)

thanks,
-brett || ||
