Since Fin Whispering first published in 2015, testing prototypes and tuning skis for clients around the world has become a full time endeavor. This year-round daily pursuit of maximum water ski performance has been quite the adventure—it has also been enlightening. This second edition shares the discoveries and insights gained over these past few years.
For example, it’s universally felt that fin adjustments control everything the ski does. But through part of the turn, binding location has five times more effect on ski behavior than the fin. So by focusing our fin and binding adjustments on what they each do best, performance gains can be remarkable.
This latest edition includes subtle updates throughout, but substantial updates to the chapters devoted to the art of tuning for max performance. With clarified descriptions, updated formulas and some revised illustrations, this new edition will take your ski-tuning skills to the next level.
