13800Re: Please explain "edge harder"
- Jun 1, 2000Thanks for the tips all. Sounds like "edge harder" means push down
harder. This could be time for a few skier type thigh strenthening
It sounds reasonable that my straps have been set up too far forward
for a foil as Alex the Stonker man is a Wipika pilot. I'll try moving
my straps further back, though I have limited scope for that without
putting in new plugs. I may end up with a wider stance and I feel
has been limiting my ability to edge strongly.
