Hi everyone.

I have decided to create a thread for all the videos I am producing instead of constantly creating a new post for every video.

I have added the Body Drag now.





Just added!
The foiling gybe:

Many thanks Gunnar. I for one have watched those avidly and I wish I had watched the one about upwind body dragging before I scrapped my foils the other day. Nothing that a bit of carbon and bog wont sort out.

Its so good to see guy's like you promoting the technology and sport positively rather than our friend with the C word who seems to think he has some sort of ownership over the sport and industry and threatens anyone who says differently.

As you said riding toe side is not that hard and if I can do it anyone can

Gunnar,
May I add my two vids titled "Dos' and dont's (launching / falling)" here or do you reserve this useful looking topic for your productions only?

Hi Dude,

I do not have a problem with that. Maybe we should change the name of the topic if possible to be more general.

Initiatives like your should be applauded ... I started on my own, without any real guidance or anyone to copy from :-?. I certainly could have done with some of these tips, learning on your own takes so much longer.

Here's my thanks from the rest of the community :thumb:

Great Gunnar :bye: The name of the topic looks good for me but what about if a word "instruct" or "instructional" is included?

This is FALLING:


This is LAUNCHING A BOARD:

For those working on roll tacks here is an excellent video thanks to Gunnar. This is on a raceboard, but the basic technique is very useful.
