BTW, brilliant skiing.... Its not often we see a Völkl/Dalbello racing gear combo in use like this. I particularly liked the way they skied both carved and brushed turns in a terrain driven way.

How come my skiing doesn't look like that????

 

Mesmerizing.   Especially the two guys in perfect synchronization at the end.

Don't we all ski like that (in our own minds), or at least want to.

One way to ski like that is to start skiing with guys/gals like that.

At the start of the video there are some advice given. Correct me if I'm wrong but IMO Paul is saying something like this:

 

straighten your back... not necessarily loosing bend in the hip.... straighter arms.... relax.... in all skiing just at the completion of the turn timing as the strong leg shortens so I don't pop up.... so deal with some of that pressure, outside... in a long turn specifically a longer straighter leg would set ????...... hip.... angulation...

 

The audio track is very bad and I cant really hear what he is saying. Also the accent makes it hard for me to make out every word. Especially at the very end. Can anybody fill me out on that please. Anyway, looks like he is talking about upper body position and pressure management.

I've made a fair number of free skiing runs with AJ Kitt and raced him head to head.  It doesn't help. :ski

 

68 year old arthritic knees may be part of the problem.....

You got a whole lot more than I did! Another vote for someone with better ability to figure out what he's saying to enlighten the rest of us.

Take a look at these articles.  I bet they pretty well cover whatever Paul is saying in the video.

Here's what I got. Thanks for doing a first pass for me; even as a native Canadian I found it hard to follow!  

 

In all skiing, a straighter back is not necessarily losing bend in the hip, straighter back and the rigid, like that, straighter arms, more relaxed  - in all skiing, just the completion of the turn, timing, with a strong leg as it shortens so I don't pop up, so it deals with some of the pressure on the outside. In a long turn specifically, a longer straighter outside leg with separation in the hips so I can show more hip angulation.  

 

 

What was cool in the video is you can clearly see some occasions where Paul's really focusing on hip angulation (longer turns), and others where he's focusing on knee angulation (shorter turns). Really lines up with the link Liquidfeet posted, also by Paul. It's a different way of looking at skiing from what I'm used to.

LF, thanks for the link. More than I can read here at work at the moment but from a quick glance everything I need to read for the next couple of years. Saw that he had copied my way of drawing :duck:

 

Metaphor, wow, you are really filling out the blanks. Thanks. Now it makes more sense. Care to decrypt the narration :rolleyes.

In all skiing straighter in the back not necessarily losing bend in the hip, but a straighter back for the visual.

straighter arms but relaxed

and in all skiing at completion of the turn a timing with a strong leg as it shortens so i don't pop up and letting me deal with some of the pressure

long turn specifically longer strong outside leg with separation in the hip so I can show more angualtion at the hip.

Guess all those winters down under helped me out a lot!!

Metaphor, that was Canadian?? I thought it had to be more exotic than that. wink.gif

I think the narration translation still needs work. And punctuation.

Ah, it's Aussie.

Quite amazing how easy it is to see the difference between the two in that video. Maybe it's just that I'm ski starved, but I just watched it like five times in a row, and am humming the tune to a song in a style I would usually hate. Clearly something is wrong with me.

This is my attempt to decipher what he is saying. The word "more" is a little hard to be sure of as it's right where there's some weird screech in the background music.

Not even close :) Just commenting that it was hard for me to understand as a native English speaker. I think rollo wins the prize.
