Loops Quick Launch:
The Loop category includes the three types of loops: the Forward-Loop, the Back-Loop, and the Push-Loop.
1. Forward Loop
The Forward Loop is the most desired maneuver after the Jibe. There are risks so I have provided two prepartory exercises to minimize getting hurt. But remember you still can get hurt! First try Learning Guide #1 until you have mastered the technique. Next, try Learning Drill #2 (the bouncer) because it is a low level loop and most people are afraid of getting air. Wear a helmet and any combative gear you can find.
The Standard Forward Loop is different from the Spin Loop in that the Spin Loop is usually performed in chop or flat conditions and is a more sideways rotation.
2. Back Loop
The Standard Back Loop is one of the most difficult moves to land and very few windsurfers can honestly claim a completion rate of fifty percent or more.
3. Push Loop
Push-Loops differ from Back-Loops in that they land tail first instead of nose first, the mast hand is sheeted in instead of out, the rotate around the axis of the mast in a backward flip style, and the clew hand pushes out early rather than late.
