Someone doesn't think so, haha red thumb going on....

I liked the red water at the end of the colour scene, better than the muddy look :-)

when you go in for a gyge and the board spins out (because you wimped out and desheeeted )the rail digs in in your case the reverse side ,, if your fooot gets caught in the strap at high speed or a bad angle you could break you fooot
took my ages tooo work out my way around this issue on the sonic ( mainly a big board stand up fin problem )

I reckon you're gybing really well Shane. You've come along way. You'll definitely right their H. I reckon that's exactly what I do when I'm O/P.

jn1 you just gave yourself away ,, everyone knows who you are now ,, we will see who pushes who in first ,,go up wind too slow the board down before the carve tooo gybe ,,or sheet in as you gybe and don't depower the sail or buy a different fin one of those slow ones usually does the trick(^^^)

Yeh i'm not sure if i'm wimping out, just trying to get in the right position to gybe, which i cant do properly yet obviously.... .
Now I cant recall spinning out at that stage so i'm not sure if it was a problem at the time. So if I sheet in for longer will the board keep planning and also am I turning to sharp to keep planning?

Please help oh Great one

Looks like there are 2 schools of thought here.
1. Slowing down before gybing by going upwind

2. Going full tilt into gybes at max speed


Its mostly just time time on water and practice, and then practice some more!
From my own experiences, I was gybing mostly like option 1 at 1st.

It was only when one day I said **** this, and started to do option 2 almost exclusively, that my gybes started to actually "feel" like theyre supposed to. Yes you will crash heaps at 1st (big deal its only water youre hitting), but stick with it and you will be rewarded bigtime.

The more speed you get into the turns, the easier they become IMO. The sail becomes weightless and you can do with it what you please. Bear away slightly to gain even more speed before you enter your turn.

I think it might be the topic divaldo. I was being sarcastic in my response. Boggy lake is a home spot for alot of flat water / speed sailors.

looking forward too seeing jn1 sailing over powered ,, will be a nice change too being underpowered and knee deep 75% of the time with the odd gust you actually gettin back into the straps and planing ( decking the sail will require a whole different mind set )

Might have to start a thread "Boring Lake George" after an awsome day of sailing down there on Wednesday . Cant believe how flat that is in 16 knots of wind, 25 must be sensational.
