Rules are there to be broken! Although many of you reading these features have regularly commented on how the key points and guiding principles influence your progress, they can sometimes become dangerously set in stone. Yes, 99% of the time we can trust and enforce many of them, but it’s good to recognise that occasionally the rule book can be thrown out of the monofilm window. There are occasions when we intentionally, albeit briefly, destroy or challenge what we ‘would normally be doing’. This is why you might hear, see or experience contradictions against commonly held thoughts.

When sailing very small boards in higher winds or surviving in challenging situations, we use less subtle techniques that can break conventional wisdom.
