It’s awesome to have all this information in one place. It’s amazingly thorough, and accurate. It makes me want to ski. I want to use and test Jay’s ideas to discover more for my skiing. This past year I have been working on ski designing more than ever with our new company, Raptor, and now having this book, my job is going to be easier as a product designer. Every slalom skier should own this book. It helps with the simpler things even if it’s just understanding how to fix a ski’s insert, and it goes all the way into the most advanced understanding of how and why your ski is sometimes your best friend or your worst enemy.

Along with all the hardcore setup stuff, a lot of the book is more generally about how the ski reacts with the water at any given point in the course. I love this part because it tells me things I’ve never thought about in terms of what my ski is doing and will do in the future. That for me makes it invaluable.

As a long time waterski coach, I was humbled by Jay Poscente’s book, Fin Whispering.  The time and diligence Jay invested into the data in this book, coupled with his clever way of delivering information both carefully and confidently, won me over in the first 10 pages.  It is no small feat to take a book of data and turn it into an interesting read while also allowing it to forever have a place on my fin tuning bench as the ultimate reference guide.

If you’re inclined to spend hours in your garage every weekend, fiddling and finicking with your fin, read this book first. Fin Whispering—Demystifying the Black Art of Water Ski Tuning, will help you push the performance of your equipment to its limits.

This book isn’t just about ski setup. It’s also about how skis work. Technique is still job one, but now I understand why the ski is doing what it’s doing and how both technique and tuning work together for awesome results. I wish I’d had this book years ago!
