Robby Swift joins Boardseeker to talk you through some of the most radical moves in windsurfing today, first up we take a look at the push loop forward…
This is my favorite move in the world. I love doing push loop forwards. It’s not every day that you can do them. You need good sized waves and lots of wind. I have done one on a 4.7 but really overpowered, I have seen Philip Koster do them on 5.0 but also over powered. My favorite size sails to do them on are 4.5 and below. Best is 3.6 overpowered.
Check out this video from the recent Red Bull Storm Chase, of Robby performing one of the best pushloop forwards you have ever seen – at 30 secs.
This technique was previously part of the ‘Radical Action’ series, after our switch over to the new website Boardseeker is now re-editing and posting updated versions of your favourite techniques….what moves would you like to see next?
