When the boat pulls a skier toward the jump ramp at an angle, a technique called “cutting,” Thees said the skiers gain more momentum, which allows them to nearly double their jump distance.» —“Five waterskiiers make all-star team” by Meagan Tackett in Western Washington University The Western Front (Bellingham, Washington) May 8, 2009.
