Another technique to clear a sail from the water if you are on a short board (not long enough to rest the boom on the nose or tail). I hold on to the rear foot strap and use my extended arm as an extension of the board. I pull the boom over my arm and leverage my arm up until the mast / sail clear the water. Works best with small to medium size sails.

For me this works even with 8.5 3-cam sail. That is a good techinque.
Ciao Michal.

Yeah,this is a great technique as you don't have to tread water. I used this also when clearing the clew if my sail doesn't fall in a practical position.

Default I'd be this Boyfriend.

I don't care if you have a boyfriend or girlfriend right now.

I don't care if you are a guy or a woman or Michael Jackson.

Just read this, it will make a difference.

If only everyone could see this and understand it.

When she stares at your mouth
Kiss her

When she pushes you or hits you like a dumb-ass cuz she thinks shes
stronger than you
Grab her and dont let go

When she starts cursing at you trying to act all tough
Kiss her and tell her you love her

When she's quiet
Ask her whats wrong

When she ignores you
Give her your attention

When she pulls away
Pull her back

When you see her at her worst
Tell her she's beautiful

When you see her start crying
Just hold her and don't say a word

When you see her walking
Sneak up and hug her waist from behind

When she's scared
Protect her

When she steals your favorite hoodie
Let her keep it and sleep with it for a night

When she teases you
Tease her back and make her laugh

When she doesn't answer for a long time
reassure her that everything is okay

When she looks at you with doubt
Back yourself up

When she says that she loves you
she really does more than you can understand

When she grabs at your hands
Hold her's and play with her fingers

When she bumps into you;
bump into her back and make her laugh

When she tells you a secret
keep it safe and untold

When she looks at you in your eyes
dont look away until she does

When she says it's over
she still wants you to be hers

When she reposts this bulletin
she wants you to read it

- Stay on the phone with her even if she's not saying anything

- When she's mad hug her tight and don't let go

- When she says she's ok don't believe it, talk with her because 10 yrs later she'll remember you

- Call her at 12:00am on her birthday to tell her you love her

-Treat her like she's all that matters to you

- Stay up all night with her when she's sick

- Watch her favorite movie with her or her favorite show even if you think it's stupid

- Give her the world.

- Let her wear your clothes

-When she's bored and sad, hang out with her

-Let her know she's important.

- Don't talk about other girls around her

- Kiss her in the pouring rain

- When she runs up to you crying, the first thing you say is:
"Whose ass am i kicking baby?"


If you do post this in the next four minutes the one you love will :

Call you
Kiss you
Love you
Text you


Guys post as: "I'd be this Boyfriend."

Girls post as: "A real boyfriend"

and if you do not re-post this within 3 minute
you'll have bad luck
with the one you love

<3
