    Well done on looking to nail the shuvit and getting your backside vertical and radical. The shuvit is an amazing feeling and when I hit one just right it brings a huge smile to my face.

    First up, it is not as hard a carve upwind as you think, and you need to be a bit off the wind to get speed before you carve upwind. So look at that in your approach - best conditions are cross on with round waves / swell to carve into ..

    Next - to get over the sail you have to literally fall over on top if it. This changes the rails from heel to toe side and pops the board out. The shuv comes next to stop you going out the front door and into a shuvit vulcan .. Focus and visualise your approach and then falling over on to your toes.

    Working on the shuvits and your back side smacks will see both these moves improving together. Again for the back side if you fall over on to your toeside you expose the whole bottom of the board to the wave so it hits the wave, accepts the energy, and gets redirected with more force.

    Therefore, look down the wave, almost down the boom and then fall over on to your toes and then push out on your back hand to bring you back upright - again, another leap of faith.

    In light winds on a floaty board or wind SUP you can practice what i call backing off in your front to sail drills - here is a link

    This is also covered in my technique DVD - Beginner to Winner

    Lastly, here is one from the video vault in the days before i was on RRD / Ezzy deep joy

    Backside riding is also very well covered in the technique movie - Winner to Wavesailor

    Hope this helps and come on wind and temperature - work your magic : )

    Default Chamois Butt'R

    Jem

    I understand you use

    Chamois Butt'r EuroStyle

    to make sliding moves more fluid and comfortable and to help get your backside riding more vertical.


    Do you prefer the

    Tub



    or the tube?



    and have you found the Special Eurostyle ingredient to your liking?

    Not everyone has been so enlightened

    Massive tweaked tabletops: At what point is best to pull the board back in and prepare for landing?

    Whooh there, i m not a tweaked table top man myself as i prefer rotating. However, you will need to gauge it with experience and ensure you get the sail open and across you on landing so you land realtively sheeted out and able to sail away.

    Table tops landed flat and sheeted in are great board breakers so throw some tail and work on improving your landings, as you go reflect on the positions you get into : )
