- Do you want to catch more waves?
- Stay further upwind?
- What about learning to win your next heat?
Mastering the finer details of wavesailing will lead to more waves, more jumps, and more fun.
The two most important ways to maximize your wavesailing efficiency are:
- Fast-tacking on both sides to stay up wind
- Proper tuning of the fins, mast track, and footstraps allows for better turns and more control
If you don’t make more than 90% of your tacks, you’re not staying upwind enough. You could have the best board in the world, but if you set it up wrong, it won’t work at all. And conversely, you can make a mediocre board perform to the best of its ability through good tuning.
Polish your wave sailing this Wednesday at noon at Waddell for the Graham Ezzy Clinic. The first 20 minutes will cover fast-tacking and the next 15 will go over the basics of board tuning.
Arrive at noon and catch more waves that afternoon.
