Duck jibe
« on: May 23, 2020, 06:23:53 AM »
Nice how to video by Patrice Geunole on an easy variation of the traditional jibe. He posted this on his Facebook page under his name. Not sure if the link will work or if you have to “follow” him first.

 I’ve done a few now and they are pretty easy if you’re already confident in regular jibes. The pro’s do a fast spin while fully de powered mid-jibe (you’ll even see some double spins) but my first attempts were ole-guy slow so I’m not finishing my “regrab” until I’m riding in the other direction. No big deal. If you mess it up the consequences aren’t too bad. I guess you handle guys can discuss the ideal handle #‘s for a duck jibe :)

the translated wording always sounds a bit quirky but the slo mo video is what really helps me. I’m mostly a visual learner anyway. Have you tried any yet?
