Don`t trust what your agent says. Read the whole written policy. It may cover 20k for property but there are usually exceptions including cash, precious metals, jewels etc. Watercraft are often includ ...

ps as you noted Tiki is sheeted out on takeoff. That is NOT what you want to do when learning. That is a more advanced technique for doing a delayed forward. He will sheet in hard at the end knowing ...

In every pic your front arm is bent on takeoff. You mention that Tiki`s arms are straight but what is most important is that his FRONT arm is straight. It is straight because he is moving the mast for ...
