Nice duck jibe! I'd be happy to do one like that on a 5.5, let alone on a 7.5 What model of sail are you on, and what type and size of board/fin? How windy is it?

James it's a Naish Switch. I'm on a JP Freestyle 109 from 2005 (a duck jibing machine...the freestyle boards of that era loved to carve compared to the current models. The fin is an 11" Maui Fin Company. Wind was 12-15. Duck jibing is easy...it's all about keeping your body still and starting the duck handwork very very early. On a 4.7 for example, the entire sail flip and catch is completed before the board passes through 6 o'clock. Notice how my head doesnt move or turn during the jibe (the camera stays steady that's how you know). It's all about staying still and smooth.

Very smooth, my complements. Looks like a soul session.

You know it, Buddha Mike! It was just me and some whitecaps and the horizon for an hour or so.

Sweet vid and style
