Hi Roger,
Serious About Waves #1. About 35 minutes into the film.
Even on much bigger boards, I find it tricky to tack if the wind is very low and the water is choppy.

Andy, once practicing at shallow water, you may want to try to improve the low-wind gybe too. When tacking, the board can come to a complete halt or even sail backwards. The board gives you the least...
