..... NO! .... perhaps if you are a real bear and you've got a good kickback you could pull something off but i think the only part of the willy skipper you'll ever pull with a GO 133 is the willy, you're not gonne skip it! The board is just too fast, too wide and too heavy. Furthermore the solo's are not built for freestyle. A few skippers gone bad and you're looking to replace that sail (especially because NP has notoriously bad monofilm).

Hi Islekel,
you can pop out the board of the water and rotate it, but the landing will be hard. I would suggest you go for chop hops and later for spinloops or airjibes. But a willy skipper needs a bit smaller board, perhaps!
But nothing is impossible, find it out! Get a bit shorter fin under the tail.
