I’m a little old and I never mastered the art of water skiing on one ski.

Brian1946's avatar

@Dutchess_III

Is that usually done with the other foot bare, or with one ski off the water?

Dutchess_III's avatar

Salalom skis are specially made with two rubber foot holders, one in front of the other like this.
You drop the left ski and put your foot in the holder behind your other foot.
It was so frustrating. It’s the only athletic move I’ve ever failed to master.

Zaku's avatar

Oh I also still practically can’t snap my fingers. If I try hard, I can sometimes sort of do it, unreliably.

Oh and I don’t know how to tie shoelaces in the “usual” way. I invented my own way of doing something similar.
