    Hey Jem, Was watching your Winner to Wave Sailor dvd and want to understand the tips for sailing clew first when riding front side in cross onshore?

    The reason I ask is that I have always struggled with the sail flapping violently when clew first for too long and have never figured out why this is. Like any of the pros, Lars makes clew first sailing when planning look really easy.

    I suppose keeping the board speed up is also really important as this will dictate how much power is in the sail?

    Appreciate any pointers.

    Thanks

    WOW - so sorry for the late reply on this ..Keep your speed up by getting the rig forward and your body low with the rig on extended arms.
    If youre clew if flapping then your back arm is not opening the sail enough so get it open and get your body to the inside of the turn ..

    All this and much much more on a clinic Justin : )

    So then the wind is in today and the water is warming up around Europe so what will this year bring for you?

    If you wish to improve how will you go about this and what will be the moves that matter to you?

    For improves to intermediates it could be:
    faster waterstarts / deeper beach starts
    sailing in the straps planing and non planing
    sailing one handed in the harness
    really really nailing the tack
    clew first beach starts
    etc etc - more tips in http://www.jemhall.com/beginner_to_winner.asp

    Ints to advanced:
    first gybes
    faster gybe approaches
    first jumps
    higher jumps
    360s
    duck gybes
    body drags
    sailing 4 reaches planing with NO HARNESS : )
    first forwards
    one handed jumps
    tack on inside and outside

    waveheads:
    ride more waves in each session
    one handed jumps
    tack on inside and outside
    go front side in cross on
    one handed top turns
    first forwards
    higher forwards
    cleaner forwards
    Vertical jumps with a level off and float down from the top
    Backies
    Pushies
    Aerials
    etc etc
    TIPS on http://www.jemhall.com/winner_to_wavesailor.asp

    Tip of the day - get way fitter than you are and keep on this, so you can sail for longer and get higher, faster and stronger!
    AND Write your targeted moves on your hands eg, duck gybe on way in one hand, one handed jump / tack outside on other hand ... do it.

    Have trust, water does not lie : )
