Re: Why sheeting in reduce power?

Re: What am I doing wrong while mid-air? (video link)

Your not doing so bad… First „jump“ is the best. Nice pop, nice spray, nice lift oft, not too early. Actually even going upwind. You are pulling up your legs, because you think it is safer to land on the but. Because you think you are landing with 60 mph. Just land on your feet. Do not worry about s...
