Beautiful Loops

This is one of the best windsurf videos I have seen in a while:


Great scenes, great loops. I love the forwards he throws - they are all different. But they are all very horizontal. At 0:58, he illustrates several concepts Andy Brandt teaches nicely, including big-small-big; sheet up; and pull yourself up. In the double forward at 1:40, he completes his first loop while going up. Cool. In his stalled high forwards, you can really see the rig movement to windward; the harness mount perspective at 1:52 is great.

His back loops are cool, too, although he seems to have a bit a problem keeping hands and feet on the gear. One might think he set out to illustrate what Tonky Frans was talking about when he pointed out the similarities between back and front loops recently.
