..... NO! .... perhaps if you are a real bear and you've got a good kickback you could pull something off but i think the only part of the willy skipper you'll ever pull with a GO 133 is the willy, you're not gonne skip it! The board is just too fast, too wide and too heavy. Furthermore the solo's are not built for freestyle. A few skippers gone bad and you're looking to replace that sail (especially because NP has notoriously bad monofilm).

Thanks. I can only take off my board for a second but its hard.

Hi Islekel,
you can pop out the board of the water and rotate it, but the landing will be hard. I would suggest you go for chop hops and later for spinloops or airjibes. But a willy skipper needs a bit smaller board, perhaps!
But nothing is impossible, find it out! Get a bit shorter fin under the tail.
