2nd session: Yah! If all else fails, head for Bird Island. Really had fun. I tried an upwind 360, without really knowing what to do or why. Maybe I should watch the video. I was attempting and had one success with jibing with my feet in the straps and heading out of the jibe switch stance. It feels cool to turn the board all the way around simply by leaning and bending knees. It will help my regular jibes to use those same techniques. I also am still yearning for my first planing duck jibe - I came pretty close though.
