How to sail in control in super strong winds
There are a lot of things that can play on that. First of all you want to have your gear right, having either board or sail too big makes it a lot harder to keep controlled. Also tuning your gear, getting used to the board and finding the set up that keeps your board closer to the water helps. When it is really strong I try not to waist my energy, instead of going full power at all times, I try to choose the moments when I am actually going to do a move and then sheet in. Sometimes sailing full speed all the time can take a lot of your energy and focus. So just looking around and saving your energy until you go for a big jump or a wave ride helps. If you save your energy you will save your power and that will end up helping you to keep control of your gear for longer.
