Those markings should be angles for adjusting the "wing". At zero, it is neuteral in the water and does a nice job of adding holding power to the tail. As you adjust it down, it will increase the downward force on the tail, wich will slow the ski down as you appoach the bouys. As a beginner - DO NOT TOUCH IT. Start with your ski as neuteral as possible. Start with a basic 15' off run at 30MPH and see where you are at skillwise. There are some great threads on here and some good links to training videos etc.

Where do you live "down under" ? It is still summer here in FL too - 89-91 degrees last weekend !
