Good thing he chose to borrow a NoLimitz Sumo mast, the mast didn't break in this maneuver!!

I would be more worried about his leg. Is it Nolimitz too? Laughing Shocked

Only the guys who fling themselves into the air into a headplant call it a maneuver. To everybody else it's a crash. Wink

I used to do a move like that. I called it a forward. I broke a Neal Pryde and a fiberspar mast while failing to perfect it.

NoLimitz might have to sponsor that kid. Looks like you might have saved him from a broken neck in that shallow water. Great way to sell your masts though. I could see that in one of your ads!

A most excellent ad photo! (And I'm a Fiberspar/MS guy!)

Do you know what he was throwing when he stuck the mast?

Looks like a back loop.
Mast isn't stuck yet.
I"ve seen several cases where the mast impaled into the reef/rock, and the board was dangling 6' off the water, the waves just smacking the board when sets rolled thru. And the masts didn't break! SDM's from the early '80's.

KID?? I think Tyson Poor might be insulted by that! Although he is almost 1/2 my age Smile

Around '94, when Ty and Whit were too small to talk to shop employees, they'd come around with Dad to scrounge windsurfing parts. Dad was a real scrounger, similar to JonahLepak's dad (who also scrounged around for parts in the mid '80's).
I gave all sorts of unsellable parts to them, a half dozen boards, double that in sails (all old used, of course), booms, masts, and football fins.
TomLloyd hated me for that.
Luckily, Jonah, Ty, and Whit became PRO sailors.
