Hey Crew,

Looping is always easier with a group. Why learn from only your own mistakes when you can learn from other's at the same time. There is also a lot less pressure when you loop in a group.

Last year we had great success with this clinic, so we are firing it up again.


I know some people jump better on port and some on starboard so I will run two back to back clinics.

June 8th at Crissy Field 12:00 till we loop and finish with debriefing beer session.

June 9th in the Delta 12:00 till we loop and finish with debriefing beer session.

Cost is $75 per day.


To sign up email me at: WyattMiller525@gmail.com

Or join both and get the out of footstraps out of harness self-catapult drill dialed on the Saturday and start hucking them in the warm Delta water on Sunday.


We will focus mainly on loops and especially the low-commitment looping drills such as: No harness, no footstraps, non-planing self catapults. We will also go over a few other freestyle moves like shuv-its, vulcans and duck jibes / carve 360's while we wait for the wind to pick up.

Its time to pull the trigger this summer, and looping really is the only trick you can learn in one day. Why not learn from other's mistakes as well as your own to shorten the learning curve.

Check back in a sec for the 15 tips to Loop. Get those juices flowing.

Shouldn't be a problem with the races we will be working on land then we can just walk up the beach and work on the self catapult drills just off the beach.

Ya last minute sign ups will work too. The oldest person I ever taught to loop successfully was 59 so i think you got it.

Windsurfers, Summer is in full effect, and it is time to start setting those season goals before .....

[b]15 TIPS FOR THE FORWARD LOOP


Getting Started:

1. Get a group of friends all at around the same level, Have every one throw in $100 bucks.
a. The first person who waterstarts out of a loop, with their feet in the straps, wins the pot.
(Another member of the loop group must witness the loop into waterstart)

2. Purchase a: helmet, impact vest, earplugs, lucky rabbits foot, four-leaf clover, H20 Audio Mp3 Case….. anything to make you feel more confident. (90% guts 10% skill)

3. Talk to someone who can loop.
(see Wyatt Miller Windsurfing Clinic plug below)

On the Water:

4. Practice flinging yourself over the handle bars, NO FOOTSTRAPS, NO HARNESS, WITH BOARD GOING 0 MPH DEAD IN THE WATER!!)

5. Do above 20 more times.

6. Practice jumping upwind, baring off as much as possible in the air, landing downwind. (Extend your front arm in the air and point your toes.)

7. Convince yourself that it is better to do a forward loop off of a Small piece of chop, off the wind.
Realize, initiating a forward loop from a jump into the wind will not work. (Unless you bare off significantly while in the air). Understand, that you do not have to get mast high in the air!, You do not even have to clear the nose of the board.
8. Put on your new waterproof ipod case and headphones, listen to charged music. (90% guts, 10% skill)
9. Wedge your feet in the straps.
10. Sail across the wind with your back hand soooooo far back on the boom. Soooooooooo far back that it feels as if you can not sheet in normally!!!

11. Jump FIRST,
Bare off the wind Second, (By extending front hand as high and as far downwind as possible and pointing toes like ballerina.)
Loop Third (By sheeting in, looking back, and trying to bite your knuckles on your back hand.)

12. Close your eyes, hold on, keep trying to bite your knuckles.

13. Hope one of the other people in your group are watching you.

14. Don’t just do it once a day, go for it 20 times on your first day. Otherwise the fear creeps back. (Also maybe no one saw it = no money/bragging rights!!)

15. Email Wyatt about his LOOPING & FREESYLE CLINIC in the Gorge this summer!! wyattmiller525@gmail.com

Looks like the ebb is good at Crissy Saturday but if the heat wave is still on any chance you will push it to next Saturday?
