Nate Smith @ Valle
I consider my self a big fan of Nate Smith.
I think he skis better than anyone else. And numbers don’t lie.
Only these skiers have run 41 off in tournament @ 36 mph:
1. Jeff Rodgers - 1997
2. Andy Mapple - 1998
3. Jamie Beauchesne - 2003
4. Chris Parrish - 2005
5. Will Asher - 2008
6. Thomas Degasperi - 2009
7. Nate Smith - 2010
9. Jon Travers - 2012
10. Freddie Winter - 2014
11. Corey Vaughn - 2015
12. Robert Pigozzi - 2018
*Ben Favret - 2002 - Boat Path Issue
Nate Smith has ran 41off more than 100 times and has made it to buoy #3 @ 43 off. (9.75 mts).
*There are (36.9 ft) (11.25) mts from the center of the slalom course to the buoy.
I’ve been following him for a few years.
Probably I have seen more videos of him skiing than of my kids.
I have studied his technic and equipment to a point that I scared him.
My initial ideas was to invite him to a handicap tournament that I had organized a couple of times before.
But unfortunately I couldn’t find enough judges to make it Record Capability.
So I invited him to Ski for a weekend @ Valle, and to do a video with an interview. (Which I’m not good at)
