Hi Basti,
guess you are totally right that this move is easier in side to sideon conditions. Perhaps you should play a bit with your mastfoot position, the straps and boomheight. It helps for sure, if you get a comfortable condition when initiating the Taka.Try to get everything a bit forward. The smaller fins for sure help. And pratice a lot of dynamic upwind 360ties without any wave. You will get a lot of control in your sail and in the rotation itself. Then you can continue with slided Flakas a s well.

At which spot sare you sailing in Peru?. Perhaps you should try to pratce the move at a mushy shoulder or at easy spots like Zarate/Paracas.

Good luck and hope it helps,
