This topic has been covered a lot recently, but for some odd reason I can't find it on the search :s

Ok found it: just do a search on "gybe" and it will bring up all results.

Hell ...just Stop-n-Go 'till you figure it out. Lots of times it better to wait to time the sets before you launch back out thru the lineup anyway. Us non-windsurfers seem to take longer to sort the jibe out. I've never worried about looking the fool. ...just make sure there's plenty of trac-top or wax outside your strap zone too.
