When I’m not training at JB Ski I am a the ice rink working on jumps and spins to help with my skiing (and its really fun!).
I think that ice skating has helped a lot with water skiing as I have developed good balance to do jump and many of the principles are the same or similar. I think that when you do a sport competitively, it is important to not only do that sport but continue or start others that can help to develop your skills even further.
Thank you so much to my ice skating coach Roland!
