Air Chacho - Phil Horrocks

Boardseeker
     
The Air Chacho by Phil Horrocks K-303

Also known as the Fruit-loop, the Air Chacho can be done in most conditions but is best learnt when it’s fairly light… in this sequence I was underpowered, on a 5.0, just pumped onto the plane and popped one out! Sideshore conditions are ideal, onshore puts a little too much power in the sail and makes learning it tricky… but it can be done in onshore…

Equipment:

Neil Pryde Zone 5.0 and JP Radical Wave 74

Venue: Sunset Beach, Cape Town

 

 

 

Tips: work on your hand movements on the beach, a slick hand change with the minimum number of movements is the key.
