This thread is about planing jibes. The point of getting you to post video of your jibe is to show all the people working on planing jibes what your jibes look like. You flip the sail in one sec ...

I suppose the terrorists promoting, openly threatening, posting techniques for, and starting jihadi wildfires across the globe have nothing to do with it.

Sheesh.

Often times there isn't room or time or enough wind to carve a planing jibe. Snap jibes are a great thing to have in the transition arsenal. ... I've mucked the sail flip up pretty badly on some of t ...

There may still be time for acid, but youth is long and permanently gone. MAYBE I can still find some when the wind's good.

I've never said other successful techniques are wrong. I simply offer alternatives that work as OPTIONS and serve to expand skill quivers. The only people I would label as "WRONG" are thos ...

It never ceases to amaze me when so many of you say something I've been doing for decades can't be done.

1. You refuse to demonstrate (and it's so easy to do so these days with video).
2. Capab ...

Andy Brandt's frequent advice for students wanting to plane through jibes is to slow things down. Worked beautifully for me

Great! You have balance. I don't. I can't surf a swell luffed, and very ...
