    I wonder about Individual competition. When someone falls in a pass, I would think that the boat would turn around and pick up the skier(s) as quickly as possible without creating a lot of waves or water disturbance. I do not see that during competition.
    The same happened for some swivel girls. I kept wondering why they don't turn around immediately and pick up their skier. Is the spotter not paying attention/communicating with the driver? When a swivel girl falls without getting a release pulled, and is ready to go again quickly, I would think that the boat could return the rope and handle to her in 15 - 20 secs or so but it seems to always take a minute
