Some wise words for beginners at the beginning of the season

I prefer to coach narrow width for beginners and focus on tall posture with controlled crossings. Then, only add angle incrementally.  If the skier adds width too soon, their position often degrades as they approach the wakes. This hinders confidence.  Rather, we want them to gain confidence crossing the wakes.  The reality is that with tall posture and a little bit more angle, the skier will gain momentum and thus width for free vs. artificially adding it.   I say let momentum from posture and incremental angle increases generate width for the skier.  Its a subtle difference but one that seems to drive confidence and progress for the beginners that I've coached.
