why isn't there at least one video of someone, somewhere doing it?

You realize (everyone should realize this) that if there is no video of Iso doing his jibe, Iso really has no idea what he's actu ...

hopefully PP is satisfied with this visual & we can end the argument. Iso's is correct in that there are many different ways to jibe other than the step jibe. The problem is that the OP is tryi ...

Prove you can jibe.

There comes a point in almost every jibe where the power
in the sail goes to almost zero. I wait for that moment, and then I spin
the sail around it's COE.

I would say that the majority of su ...

I'd never ask anyone to sacrifice precious wind just to satisfy you guys' inexplicable fascination with media

Two things I'm always amazed by when trying to jibe on a wave face:

1) How early I have to start the jibe and how much speed I need,

2) How early I have to flip if I do catch the wave due to ...

I have made some very quick, snap type jibes on small boards and sails and had plenty of wind for me to accelerate "back on plane" immediately. That means that my speed in the middle to end ...

It never ceases to amaze me when so many of you say something I've been doing for decades can't be done.

1. You refuse to demonstrate (and it's so easy to do so these days with video).
2. Capab ...
