Planing is usually a point of no return in windsurfing... If you have had the patience to overcome the first difficulties and learn the basic maneuvers, the thrill of planing will make you definitely addicted to this sport. So, let us understand how to achieve and maintain this magic mood.

We received these articles by mail from Andrea Cucchi of Point 7, and we publish them on Waterwind with pleasure, to spread it among all windsurfers that will experience the next Defi wind in Gruissan (France), as Andrea will do.

The power jibe is a maneuver which is very much desidered by medium level windsurfers. Asking for advice to friends, you will have several versions of how to perform the maneuver. With this article, I would like to make a comparison between the different techniques, stimulate discussion, and receive comments about it.

Waveriding is the windsurfing discipline that attracts me most. Playing with waves power is a magical feeling. In this article, I will gather some basic concepts for those who, like me, want to begin this way of windsurfing.

For many riders, a normal forward or back loop is, already, a desired goal. Other windsurfers have more ambition, and then to observe young champion Loick Lesauvage's technique for push loop can offer many insights.

Many of you will have happened to be in a spot, seeing a windsurfer performing a freestyle maneuver, and wondering which maneuver he/she is landing. It may be simple curiosity, but more often you would like to learn it, and then you need to know its name, to look for instructional material that explains it clearly. We have therefore decided to classify them and create a catalog of freestyle maneuvers to help you, to get that purpose.
