Although the majority of drivers out there do a great job, I still see loads of people from the ‘turn and burn’ school of power turning.
If you want to maximise the glassy conditions, the best way to retrieve your fallen rider is to pay close attention to their riding. Be quick to react when they fall and simple pull the throttle into neutral, before coasting to a stop.
Turn full lock and simply idle back to your rider and perform a gentle arc around them while they grab the rope.
This keeps the water flat for you and anyone else that you might be sharing with…
Obviously in really busy times it may be necessary to use your common sense and ensure that the safety of your crew and fallen rider takes precedence.
