This is a made for TV video pitting the Mahre brothers against two top water skiers (LaPoint, Roberge) on water and on snow.  A bit goofy, but a fun watch.

What I know about water skiing could fit on the head of a straight pin, but it looks to me like he is really late  "counter balancing".
That move where the "free" arm is swept back  comes later  and later in the turn until he finally loses balance.
Would be fun to see the water ski champs on the snow
