Default Pond Skimming

Hey all, that time of year again. Snowboard as fast as you can accross water.

My hill does this every year, idea is that about 100 people go to the top of the mountain get going do as fast a possible and try and get accross about 75 feet of water. Everyone that makes is goes back and and does the same thing from half way up. Repeat, untill one guy left.

I need some pointers on how i can be the last dude standing. I usally do well, 3-4 rounds, but i just cant get that extra 5 feet i need to win.

So here are the questions:

1) Quick wax after each round?
2) Pop into the water, max distance before hitting?
3) Try and pump in the water to make a fish-like movement?

Anything else?
