    Default Cheese Roll

    I watched someone do a cheese roll yesterday, right in front of me, and it looked so nice. I spoke to him afterwards, and he said they were much easier than forwards. Is this true??

    Has anyone on here tried them? Or can anyone on here already do them?
    I'm going to have a go tomorrow if there's some wind.

    Been trying to try one for a while, but always forget and try forwards when the moment occurs. Was inspired by one of the camber boys - Christian - he bangs out massive ones, but he only sails when it's F8+, so I'm not sure if monster wind is a prerequisite. They look scary though, at least at the height he does them at.
    I was chatting to his brother about them too, he reckons they interfere with your forwards and you tend to end up doing one or other exclusively cos that's what you've programmed yourself to do. Which explains why I've not been able to get my body to attempt one yet.

    That video makes it look harder than a forward to me, and there seems to be quite a bit more scope for injury. If there's enough wind over the weekend I'll put a camera on and see if I dare try one.
