The carve gybe is the biggest move in windsurfing to learn, it may not be in the same league as a double forward, but then most of us aren’t as crazy as Koster.
The benchmark move, that simply turns you round so that you can go back where you came from, but in a very stylish manner. It’s not as simple as it looks, with a lot to think about throughout the move… but when you get it, your carve gybe will seem effortless.
Here’s a new coaching video from Andy Bubble Chambers, talking you through the step version of the carve gybe (not strap to strap). Maybe this will contain that one extra tip that gets you through your next gybe?
