Yesterday we had three mini-lectures/Q&A on the psychology of landing moves, step by step instruction on freestyle moves, and freestyle equipment set-ups.

Today, we covered the forward loop, switch stance vulcan, and carve 360s from 10-11:30am. At 2-4p we did LWF and loop pre-exercises on the water. I decided that I will attempt my my first loop on starboard tack. Am I going to develop enough stones to throw one? Stay tuned (damn, I did not pack a helmet, and it will have to be on my largest sail).
