Q. I have been a slalom skier all of my life and recently I purchased a CWB Flame board with Torq bindings. I adjusted the bindings so that they were pointed at slight outward angles and in the middle from front to back. Here is my problem, I was able to get up on my first try and have had no problems with starting since but my dilema comes once I get up. I have had the boat going around 20-22mph and the board feels like it wants to do a 180 on me. Actually it did on my 2nd try while just getting out of tthe water and the spill was nasty! What am I doing that makes the board want to slide around on me? Do I need to lean back more, adjust the bindings differently, etc.? Man I love this sport, it`s much more fun than skiing, if you can give any advice I`d appreciate it...Thanks
