I'd be a seven year old if I could duck a 7.5!

Duck jibing a 7.5 is not as hard as it sounds. It's all about keeping the upper body still, chin up, and being patient (and optimistic)! Try it. I once ducked an 8.8, though no I did not come close to planing out. But it can be done!

Duck those 7.5's everybody!

I remember watching Dorian van Rijsselberghe ducking his RS:X 9.5 during the Olympics on the way to gold. Not sure if it was his parade lap or it improved his chances of planing out of a jibe.

Since I have T-Rex arms and I'm short, this is like reading about dunking a basketball.

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
