Cheers chaps! What with duck gybing and a new body no-one will know me! :lol:
I’ll throw in ‘vision’.
As for reg gybe look out of the turn to where you want to go, not at the rig.
When you duck keep your eyes and your head pointing to where the clew has just been - out of the turn. Let your new front hand find the boom on its own.
As i said somewhere else in this thread - and someone told me. So much of completing moves is where you head and eyes are at. Look at the sail and/or look at your feet and you will most likely fall in. Head up look to where you are going.

Great comments everyone and thanks for your feed back.

Since starting this post ive sail three or four times and made massive progress with my gybes, also ive got the buzz back and thats probably down to the progression.

All i did was watch the sam ross you tube clip over and over and practised with a rig in the garden a few times.
Then when on the water i really made an effort to commit , concentrate and look were i wanted to go.

I didn't think that i would of got stuck in a rut with my windsurfing but i did without even knowing it, I'm not good yet but its exciting going round the corners with full power!!!
