Head Movement Signals


For the severely disabled and for those people who are unable to let go of the towrope, the following movements have been substituted for the hand signals.

Instruct the skier to make the head movements exaggerated, so that the normal bumps and jolts of skiing are not misinterpreted as speed change signals.

NOD HEAD  = FASTER
SHAKE HEAD SIDE TO SIDE = SLOWER
TURN HEAD IN THE DIRECTION OF DESIRED TURN = TURN OR RETURN TO START

NOTE:  It may be necessary for the observer to continually repeat the above mentioned hand signals back to the skier until an agreed upon “affirmative” head signal is indicated by the skier.
