One thing I noted was that prior to taking off the rider appears to shift body weight towards the nose of the board prior to moving the rig forward. I wonder if this is intentional, to allow greater forward movement of the rig?

My take is that he deliberately absorbs the impact of the wave to reduce the height of his jump. It looks like he was quite powered and didn't care to throw a 20' high late endo so much Very Happy !

he does, and that's probably his way of getting the rig forward. it is actually how most people approach the loop. of course you can also find footage of guys who don't do that, who keep the body very upright, sheet out slightly, move the rig to windward and forward (like a pivot jibe), and then sheet in and rotate. the latter is definitely more advanced technique.

there's a POV loop in this vid near the beginning... maybe will give some insight?
