10 Sick Tricks That Will Make You Fall In Love With Windsurfing

Windsurfers look pretty freakin' slick when they move like this...

P-20120411-00040_News

Windsurfing freestyle is pretty awesome. There’s a lot of scope for flying around, and even the beginner moves look pretty badass.

Once you get past popping vulcans and front loops though, there’s a whole world of surfing madness waiting to be explored. Here are just ten craziy tricks that have been pulled on a board…

1) Shifty 720

Swiss freestyle sailor Balz Müller pulled the shifty 720 earlier this year. It’s pretty damn sick.

Muller: “The Shifty is an Air Shaka into Pushloop, frontside cork 720 like in snowboarding.” Watch out for future developments from Balz in the future!

2) Spock Double Culo

The Spock is an extension of the Vulcan (as you can probably guess by the name). The Culo is similar to a burner but in normal stance. This is a spock double culo. Not bad…

3) Double Flaka

The flaka is an aerial windward 360 initiated by bearing off the wind. Have a look at this double flaka. This is some rotational awesomeness right here!

4) Double Loops…

The airtime these surfers get is pretty insane. Check out the double loop – this is one way to make sure you look like a badass on the board. The flipping doesn’t end there though, either…

5) And Maybe Triples Soon!

This is the footage from when rider Boujmaa Gouilloul took on the first triple, flew as high as 15 metres, and crashed hard on the water.

Luckily, teammate Klaas Voget was on hand to help him and he recovered well in hospital. The race is still on to see who can land the triple first…

6) Double Funnell Puneta

This is an awesome combo from Kiri Thode, one of the pro riders who has been at the right end of the rankings in the sport for a fair amount of time!

7) Double E-Slider

An E-slider is basically a switch grubby. A grubby is another sliding 360 move, and actually one of the easier tricks to master in the world of windsurfing. This is a double E-slider. We like doubles – and this looks pretty damn slick.

8) Air Kabikuchi

Davy Scheffers shows off his kabikuchi with some awesome strength and control! Get this one nailed down and you’ll look sick in the water…

9) Crazy Pete

Here’s Boujmaa Guilloul pulling a crazy Pete in Morocca. This is a back loop into a rig flip, and it got even more ridiculous when Boujmaa took it one step further…

10) The Black Shot

This video comes from Guilloul back in 2008. He created an awesome new combo and named it the ‘The Black Shot’ – it’s a crazy Pete into a forward loop. This is ridiculous!
