We study orthonormal normal sections of two-dimensional immersions in R, n ≥ 2, at which these sections are critical for a functional of total torsion. In particular, we establish upper bounds for the torsion coefficients in the case of non-flat normal bundles. With these notes we continue a foregoing paper on surfaces in R.
