If you're behind the wheel while a skier attempts to drop a ski, work out a plan with the skier beforehand. Once the skier is up, execute a short loop back to the skier's starting point, preferably close to shore, where the skier can drop the second ski. You want him or her to drop the ski as close to the shore as possible, out of the way of most boat traffic. Try to approach the drop point on a straight line so the skier can remain centered and comfortable behind the boat. Since you need one spotter always keeping eyes on the skier, recruit a second spotter just to keep eyes on the dropped ski so that it's easier to recover after the skier is done.
