Moves to try: Clew first spock

When you can sail clew first and in control you can start trying moves. The best is to learn the moves separately and in this order (over the next few pages). The easiest is the clew first spock. It is probably the easiest freestyle move out there, it is just a bit of a step trying to go clew first, so people often try the vulcan or regular spock first.

To do it: Sail clew first, a bit off the wind with good speed, then punch the clew ahead of you as you rotate through a spock, as you slide backwards be sure to tuck the sail in close to your body, then either sail out clew first or carve/slide round for the 540.
