Hi Peter !
I know this question may be off this topic, but I wish you could help me.
I am trying to learn the slam jibe.
I 've read about this move, and saw your tutorials ( lets go wave sailing and serious abour waves vol 1 ) but there seem to be two diff approaches. One is to sheet in in the beginning of the move, and the other is to slightly sheet out ... That would be my first question, wich one is the right one ?
Second, when I initiate the jibe, I try to loose some speed by heading upwind and sheet out a little bit, then I place my back foot behind the back strap and on the inside rail, and through my body backwards and to the inside of the turn ... but the rail, in stead of sinking smoothly, makes the board to jump/bounce and that prevents me from doing the carve I am suppouse to.
Thanks in advance !
