Our son John has just done a clinic with Jem Hall (brilliant coach!)and they spent ALOT of time on the water in the lighter winds with bigger boards and small sails just practicing freestyle and stance. The difference this makes is amazing. You become so confident on the board that it becomes like a toy beneath your feet. So then when the wind is stronger your sailing,balance, expertise etc. is enhanced beyond belief. No matter how good you are - you can be pulling off radical forwards in big waves etc. - practicing like this in low wind conditions can still change your sailing for the better. Also its far more exciting than sitting on the beach waiting for the wind!

You can also find some good light wind (and planing) freestyle videos here -
