I was lucky enough to capture this unlucky fellow on-piste the other day.
He was just fine after his adventure.
Practice the Royal Christie and enjoy its feeling.
By the way, Exotic.... it's spelled
"REUEL Christie" (pronounced ROYAL)
(geez, these youngsters just can't get anything right! lol
That is a "flying christie". Outside ski held up a foot.
A Royal (sp) Christie would have the outside ski back to the point where the tail is over the inside shoulder and the tip straight back.
Art Fuerr (sp?) of the Hart Demo Team had is perfected back in 1968. He inspired me to pursue a career in freestyle skiing when I was 11 years old.
I butted in on another thread started by ExoticSkis, but figured better not to hijack further. But I did post the following there, and am still curious, so perhaps someone will reply here...
For those of you who can do a royal christie do you find it easy to hold the same pose standing on one leg with the other extended up behind you? Not on skis, just say in your stocking feet in your living room. Or does the additional stability provided by a ski boot plus turn forces actually make it easier to hold that pose while skiing?
I myself can't do a royal (or reuel, or even flying) christie on skis yet...
...but I do like to practice wherever I can! ;-)
