"In order to make it a flare jibe you need to really tip/lean the rig way over to the windward side to drive the board around and past dead downwind."

Thanks Roger, thatīs the keypoint. Regulate the sailspressure with the sailarm when the mast is leaned far to the windward side and sheet in.

I would suggest to chance th efeet position quit eearly and also rotate (flip) the rigg super early over the long npse. So you can stabilise the finishing part of the jibe. But first you need a correct initiation.

Feet back and in parallel position while the initation can help to turn quicker and stabilize your whole body board rigg system.

Most important out of my view is the correct sailwork, like Roger mentioned.

Good luck,
