The Misty Flip

Originally invented by Kiri Thode, the ‘toad’ has had some speculation over the naming of the move. However, the common use of ‘misty flip’ by many of the pro-riders has lead to this casual re-naming. Now one of the smoothest and most consistent riders on the tour talks us through it, over to Phil Soltysiak.



Recap:

  • Duck the sail so you are going clew-first
  • Maintain a wide grip
  • Sail fast in clew-first
  • Aim for a small ramp and carve a tiny bit into the wind as you take off
  • Flip the board over the sail and land the sail behind you
  • Pro-tip: On landing be sure to bring the hands closer together
