When being dropped. Let the bar put all the way. And drop faster!. Redirect obviously.Then just before landing pull the bar in hard. Soft landing.Kamikuza wrote: Thanks, Westozzy.
When the wind's gusty, you might go up really nicely then suddenly get dropped cos the gust has died . . . you can redirect all you like, but you're still coming down hard. Rather than slam all my weight on my board and knees, like I've jumped off the roof of the house, I'll splash-down on my bum.
Only get knocked around when I drop down in the surf, get nailed by the waves . . .
