shaka, shaka ! nice vid, hopefully I get to post my own forwards soon, I waterstarted once off straps and tried waterstarting in the straps out of a couple today.

I do try to bear off nicely, it's great to help with pulling the trigger. Then I usually get more confident and eventually make "the loop de trop" and send it without bearing off and with mast towards nose of the board. While this is ok on a wave, it can be a little frustrating over chop!

It felt nice to move rig more across maybe it's also a good sign for future sessions. It'd help if the water was more organized it's been pretty rough!

Oooooh I think I got this... last thing I needed was a pop with body over the board, pressure from both legs as opposed to back foot!

Then curiously the nose of the board doesn't slow the rotation down! Got some neat attempts after I tried it, just needed a bit more wind as it was late in the session.

Will update tomorrow!!! So exciting, 1150 !!!

I'm not sure what kitboarding is...

I tried to land one before going on vacation but it didn't happen. Clew got stuck in the water upon landing and sail ripped out of my hands or I waterstarted but had to leave the straps.

Unbelievable but now so enjoyable quest!

One of my most recent tries... feedback?

I'd say my sail is a bit too sheeted in (with the board) et not enough across when popping, maybe body a bit too outboard too?



Not tucked enough and I feel like I'm not using all of the sail's power to whip around fast, I'm "falling" too much.



Found another one, maybe my best...

From moving forward over the board, I was feeling a lack of sail traction. Thought I needed to open the sail more at the pop. And so today, I tried to bring the sail more across and in front of me.... wow now I had more back hand amplitude. Now I was quite underpowered with only planing in the short gusts so I'll need to confirm when properly powered.

Well that's it, quest is coming to an end!!! Yesterday's session was just perfect, 16-23 knots, a few bumps, so many attempts! Waves and chop, didn't really have any problems aside from starting off more upright with sail more across. The rest is decent enough! Tried many waterstarts in the straps but I bend my front arm too early. So happy, the rotation is amazingly fast like a gunshot!

I even started on Port Very Happy ... not so pretty but know what to do and attempts are much more forward now I need to open and scissor the board with the sail nicely before going.

To celebrate another spin loop example from Tonky Frans...

I'll try to get an external view in the next few days, interested to see what they look like outside of the wide lense.
