Cool vids, i think i am trying to flip the sail too early in duckgybes, so it still is pulling and tries to fly down hard.
Post a 360 please!.

Yes. If the wing is still pulling when you rotate/flip it, then you are not going downwind deep/fast enough. Wait until the wing stops pulling. A little trick is to flip it a bit off to the side (right in this video).

I cannot do any, the easiest?
I guess it would be the basic half gybe to backwind and back to initial tack?
And any kind of strapless maneuver variation/trick is welcome, i have an unstable knee and i am (for now) staying away from straps and jumps.
Thx!

Probably the easiest is to carve to toeside and then carve back to heelside.

No luck yet with the Wingtaka 360,my tacks are a bit clumsy still,only finish about 50% on foil.Sometimes the wing goes nuts when passing through the wind and creates lots of flapping and resistance,other times it just switches sides nice and clean,still figuring out why.

But i did pull 3 downwind 360's yesterday,one clean on foil :).

Also doing this kinda duckgybe but you pivot the wing on the front handle instead of the back one, Johny Heineken does it often.
And a sort of lay down gybe,like entering a 360 but as soon as the wing starts to backwind you pull it up to umbrella and switch hands.
