hello again roger
I was out in overpowered 5.8 conditions yesterday and seemed to be having trouble keeping speed in my jibes. I was on my hypersonic 111 from 2004 which I know isn't the greatest jiber. I have never really had this problem jibing it before. I was sailing in decent sized chop (knee high I guess) doing some speed runs etc. When I was I just regularly sailing in the chop, I had no problem getting around all the way etc, but when I had a lot of speed, I always overtook the chop and then lost all the board speed.
What am I doing wrong? I try my best to keep with the chop (wide arc) and cannot do a tight jibe with the hyper. Is it just a commitment issue with my jibes in chop? I feel like I am almost too committed and the board just gets swallowed up in the chop.
Thanks a lot for the help,
