Looks nice. I like to have about 6" of line sticking PAST the stopper on any line exiting a cleat, so if it slips all the way to the stopper I can still grab it. I added cheap clear PVC (vinyl) tubing to the lower portion of that same (blue) line, so it won't wear on the bar (or my hands!). You know...

Spinning should be possible by adding a swivel, or swivelling hook, to attach the leash. Speaking of leashes, you can ditch the leash shown, by moving the primary release to a postion above the bar, allowing the trim line (the one going behind his elbow) to serve double-duty as the leash. That trim ...

Board leashes are sometimes necessary, such as when riding alone in an upwind current, or REALLY powered up (not just thinking you are, with the limited range typical after only a "couple months"), or BARELY powered up (not just thinking you are...), or in low light (can't see the board).

Re: Jibes

Absolutely. All I meant was that my method may give some of you slightly better results, especially in similar (choppy) conditions. The conditions here are rarely what I'd call "difficult", but it's all relative. I do make over 99% of my jibes in conditions which are normal here (so I'm used to them...
