Thanks for having me!

Glad to hear that you like the series, I'll keep sharing videos as I make new ones! I'm trying to mix it up and cover both light wind and new school stuff, so there should be plenty more stuff for everyone to enjoy. And thanks for linking the playlist!

Re: WINDSURF TUTORIAL SERIES

Just released 2 new episodes in the How to Freestyle Series and they're both dedicated to switch stance skills in and out of the footstraps.

Both of these are perfect for anyone familiar with the regular Heli Tack/Upwind 360, and they can even be used as skill building drills for all types of Spocks!

Heli Tack Switch Stance...

For anyone from newbie up, watch this one. There is so much to unwrap and he does it all in just a couple of minutes. On those days where we are taxiing back and forth waiting for a gust, this should keep you busy.

Re: WINDSURF TUTORIAL SERIES

I like the displacement mode move - riding with feet "on the wrong side" seems like a very useful skill. Way to tack on a very short board (like as skateboard....) Have to try that.

What happens in a black hole stays in a black hole.

Haha thanks man! And once you're done with that one you'll be ready to take on the switch 360!

Definitely a useful skill! Getting comfortable with riding switch really helps your jibes too. Let me know how it goes!

Re: WINDSURF TUTORIAL SERIES

Thanks for sharing your tutorials! I spent this morning working on light wind Heli Tacks and your videos are quick but easy to follow.

I was able to get them down pretty quickly (at least for light wind conditions). I even managed a couple upwind 360’s too.

Cheers
