Catastrophic cataplunk

Sweet! Does that move require a parachute?

(I can't say I've never done the same...)

Dev, I assumed that is exactly what you did!
Comment by Dev Chaphalkar on April 18, 2011 at 8:07pm
Do you think we can turn this into a freestyle move? It looks like I could just unhook, throw the sail upwind, let it spin under me as I'm flying, land on the other side of the board and sail away clew first, lee side.

I think you meant that he landed perfectly back on the board and sailed away without missing a beat!

Cartwheel and total face plant into the sail.  He came in and asked if his face was bleeding!!!

I wish you could post what happened a split second later!

Notice the heads up position.  I think he's trying to spot the landing!

Now that's a great shot.  Despite only one hand on the boom, Dev manages to keep the board flat, rail-to-rail!
