Adjusting Your Water Ski Bindings
Adjusting your water ski bindings is essential not only to ensure safety during water skiing, but greatly increases the fun of this sport. For best results when adjusting your water ski bindings, make sure to get the ski and the binding slightly wet. While it is possible to adjust the bindings while they are still dry, the process will be much more difficult.
Things you'll need:
- Water ski bindings
- Get your ski bindings wet. This is essential when it comes to adjusting the size of the bindings. You can adjust them when dry, but the process will be much more difficult and frustrating.
- Slide the binding back as far as you need to get your foot in the binding. Once the binding has been moved back a relatively far distance, place your foot into the binding. Push your toes up as close to the front of the binding as possible in order to ensure a close fit.
- Slide the binding up against your heel. Make sure that it locks into place for best results. If you have a difficult time performing this task yourself, ask a friend or family member to make sure that the binding has been securely locked.
- Repeat the process with the other binding. Often, it can be difficult to do this once one foot already has been placed in the binding. As with step three, ask a friend or family member for help if needed. In order to prevent injury, make sure both bindings are secured to your feet before attempting water skiing.
