Pirouette Gybe – Ben Proffitt

The Pirouette Gybe by Ben Proffitt

The pirouette gybe is well within the reach of anybody who can carve gybe consistently. It is a really cool ‘old school’ trick which is not actually as hard as it looks. Break it down, practice on the beach and give them a go! Guaranteed no-one else at your beach will be doing them!!
