August 11, 2012 How to Ocean Waterstart Jon
Hi Henry, great vid and good tips especially with regards to keep the sail high in swell. A few pointers from me to you (yes, I am a bit cheeky) 1) Avoid getting both feet/legs on the board in any type of waterstart (except if your board is flipped over). Keeping one leg in the water (the front one) will work like a daggerboard/fin and keep you from floating too much downwind - which can be a real issue if you are out in the waves 2) Hands closer together (unless you are overpowered, in which case do bring them a little apart for control) gives you more power in the sail overall, which assists you in getting back on the board faster. Great site!
