Top Tips

Dieter Van der Eyken shares his top tips to unlock the flaka

Dieter Van der Eyken: "The windsurf trick that is on both Freestylers’ & some wave sailors’ lists to learn. A move that is fairly easy to do & learn once you get the right technique at the take off and that can be performed both on flat & choppy waters.

With the take-off being so key, I give you my insights why a good Carve jibe will help you progress faster in the Flaka.

With the use of unique drone angles, I further give you an inside tip on how the apparent wind will influence the Flaka & many other maneuvers in windsurfing. So even if you are not going for the Flaka this year there are a few things to learn in this clip that are not related only to the Flaka.
