I know a guy that has very heavy sails and boards. People scratch their heads when they see him planing on small gear. Shocked
Yup. Most beginners and intermediates in any gear oriented sport think ...

All true. My main point is the flip should be efficient. Grabbing the boom in the wrong spot, not having the rig in the perfect place before sheeting in etc will screw up the jibe no matter how good t ...

If you're comfortable sailing clew first after switching your feet keep on doing it. It will keep you powered up while you get ready to flip the sail. Milliseconds count so the faster the sail goes f ...

I was at the boat ramp from 10-2 yesterday and thought the wind quality was very good. A few lulls but overall very steady. Mellow 3.7 then building to raging 3.3 . I gave it a 9/10.

The downside of just doing what is fun and not pushing yourself to advance and learn new skills is that eventually you will get bored mowing the lawn and take up kiting. And then you will be one of th ...

Every day on the water I see extremely experienced Gorge sailors who look great on their reaches and stay dry for hours but who never plane through their jibes. It's just not a high priority with the ...

I still can't believe the difference between front loop and back loop in terms of what needs to be done. A backloop can be landed without doing anything at all while the front loop, pop tall, tuck ...

To add to Kevin's tip, in addition to sheeting in with the back hand think of sheeting up.Pulling up with your back hand in addition to pulling in. Up with the back hand, down and forward with the fr ...

Dude, look at your front arm in every picture. It's bent as hell. Reach back farther with your back hand, push the rig forward so your front arm is straight after you jump, then sheet in. That's it. ...
