How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

Keep your body stacked over your skis front to back and side to side. Keep your shoulders facing downhill and tip them slightly over your outside ski as your skis cross the fall line. This will help you keep more of your weight over the outside ski. Strong pole plants are key for stability and control in the steeps.
Skiing from side to side allows you to avoid obstacles, slow your descent, and ski with more precision. Traversing the run is a basic technique, used by all skiers crossing a run, in between turns.
Don`t lean back

There is a common misconception that one should lean back whilst powder skiing but in fact while it is important to keep the tips from sinking, leaning back makes It much harder to turn effectively.

What are side hits? Side hits are small jumps that either naturally form or are carved out by other skiers and snowboarders hitting them over and over.
When an athlete is skiing at top speed, those freezing temperatures are intensified and competitors are in danger of burning their noses and cheekbones. Which is why they use protective tape to cover key areas.
You should feel the shin move to the front of the boot and the muscles in the front of the shin engage. Being able to bend the ankle and engage the front of the boot (and the front of the ski), while keeping a stable base of support, should give a kind of `power steering` effect.

Refinish the top side of K2 skis?
ANSWER : If there is major damage that could affect the structure of the ski there is really no one who can fix it and i wouldn’t continue skiing on them. If you are just trying to make the skis look nice on top try any oil based cleaner if that doesn’t work give them a thin coat of epoxy. why does the condition of the tops of the skis matter anyway?

I have a 1997 Coleman 107 Hot Tub. While filling the tub it over flowed and the circuit breaker popped. Over the years I’ve done this a couple of times. I remove the side, let things dry for a day or so and everything is fine. This time, I reset the breaker and the spa went on. The pumps work fine, and the control panel shows the temp and the indicator light shows the heater is on. However, work never heats up. The local spa repair folks are crooks and they know less than I do, and I know NOTHING. Nonetheless, I’m going to try and fix the problem myself. Now, I need to know the best way to determine if the problem is the circuit board or the heater itself. I also need to know where I can get a repair maual. I’m tired of paying Goober and Gomer hundreds of dollars.
ANSWER : Check the terminals that lead into the heating element to ensure voltage is present (110 AC) if voltage is present upon start up the heating element must be replaced if no voltage is present is is most likely a control board issue. Go to this web site for contact info and possible repair manual aquisition.

Mar 12, 2010 – Could it be the check valve? I took it off and the flap appears to be working correctly. This well has been here a long time. Never given me any problems. I do have galvenized couplers on the discharge and intake sides. Old. Could these be leaking even though they show no sign of water? The discharge is able to hold 30 pounds easily overnight. I do not hear any vacuum in the intake when I take it off. Could the pipe to the well have a leak? I know I would have to insert a sleeve bnut I do not want to go through the hassle if I do not have to. I had put on a brand new pump from the hardware store that did the same thing so I think that would elliminate the pump as being the problem.
Mar 12, 2010 – I have a 3/4hp flotec convertible jet pump. It is able to hold 30lbs pressure on the discharge side as the primie easily for 24 hours. It is not able to pull water from the well whcih has been here for years. i disconnected it for the winter and rehooked it up. The galvanized couplers on the discharge and pump side are old but do not appear to be leakeing as I taped them well. The check valve seems to be functioning well as I took it off and the flap works correctly. The well is not pulling watrer. there does not appear to be a vacuum on the check vale when I losen it. could the check valve be bad? I am aware I might have to resleeve the well, but do not want to hassle with this if I do not have to. I want to eliminate everything else first. i put another brand new pump on it to see if it was that. That partiuclar pump which was the same thng did not work either.

ANSWER : Your well has gone dry it seems. It has happened to my before. At first the new pump I purchased that did not pump I took back for exchange and still no water. I finally gave in and called the well experts and I was told the well was dried up

ANSWER : The 2 longest of the poles go in an x over the center of the tent and the 2 shorter ones go arch to the sides. http://www.wenzelco.com/details.aspx?NavID=412shows a picture very similar to your tent.

Ez-go golf cart press accelerator pedal and nothing happens
ANSWER : The first thing I would do is lift the seat and check the battery connections. Those batteries are notorious for corrosion at the terminals. Make sure every connection is clean and solid, as in no loose, corroded or frayed battery cables. Next, if the batteries check out, toggle the run/tow switch, also under the seat to make sure it is fully engaged into the run position, and finally check the forward/reverse lever to make sure the connections are clean and tight.
