New Always Windy Instructional Video - Frontloop

Postby mark van haze » Wed Aug 21, 2013 3:11 pm

Finally we got around to making a new instructional. The frontloop or frontroll (and I am sure this will be sparking off some discussions) is your basic hooked in front rotation and we tried to cover as many common mistakes as possible. Everybody seems to love wipeouts - watching that is.

Front roll without using the kite or front spin when using the kite, I always thought.

I call that simply...... a forward..............and here is my favorite thing to do with it

Trow a DownLoop with kite (pull bar with front hand) after one rotation while still in the air......

......and you will transition to the other tack.....by doing 1/2 more rotation and land toeside

I call that a forward 540 DL air jibe........you will have no twist in lines.....you come out of it clean

Get good at it and do the same from your toeside and land the forward 540 DL air jibe heelside

P.S. i do all my tricks on strap surfboards......sold all my TT's

:surf: :sun:
