Switch Kono

The Switch Kono is another crazily explosive freestyle move that is initiated at full speed, back-winded.

Quick Recap:

  • Go fast and get in switch stance.
  • Reach far down the boom and duck the sail fast (like a duck tack)
  • “Let the sail do its thing” – don’t pull it close or push it away.
  • The magic bit: push with your back hand, throwing the sail up.
  • When you land, close the sail so that the board falls properly.
  • Let go with your back hand and grab the other side of the sail.
  • Switch your feet and sail away!
