Basically just turning the body the other way, as changing direction.

Apologies if this is just a standard turn trick,
I just have not seen it any of the other youtube videos.
The rest of the video available here, if anyone is interested:

I`m new to kiteforum, and sorry if I`m posting not correctly or inappropriately.

Cheers, Oyvind.

Thanks for all the kind replies.
Ok, II`l call the "OyJibe" :)
Yes, the clothes are for sun-protection.
The temperature is very comfortable both in the air and in the water here in Thailand.
My foil & board is from small French company called Radical. Now being sold by airush:

I also have a smaller board (Horue) that I ride sometimes:

Thanks - so it is the 96 cm carbon mast and the standard Airush wing :D

I have ridden that one in january in Langebaan (with the wide Core foilboard though, and not the narrow longer team board), worked great, a good allround wing for "everything" performs good, turns well, and starts okay early.
I really liked the board too, easy for beginners and would work great for lighter wind too :thumb:

Can you tell how much the trim angle of the back wing affects the handling?
What is your setting? That's got to be the secret behind your novel tricks! :naughty:

Hi Oyvind,

very nice style indeed :thumb: , it is one cool thing about kitefoiling that there are already so many possibilities and styles that you can recognise the good riders just by their way to move and unique tricks.

Like the hand plant flip at 2:17 a lot, have to try it once. :D

Also the "radical" setup is pretty cool even not my style, tried a view times and has much potential for strapless and also straped jumping, think this is the shaper, isn't it?

Also showing amazing unique freestyle in the early days of foil freestlye

@Alexrider:
Yes, trim angle setting range on the Alu Airush is maybe to wide, lowest angle totally to the front is already to low and Foil will word as canard. Try something around middle with slight tendency to back, should work, and then in mm steps to see if better for you. But maybe Oyvind can give more precise answer, but maybe also difference between the original radical and airush alu setup.
