How to back loop overpowered
The back loops have a bit of a different technique in these winds. I think first of all choosing a vertical ramp is everything, a ramp that will push you straight up. Even if that sounds scarier, that’s the safest way to do it. If you go up really vertically it means you are taking power off your sail. If you just jump on a ramp that’s not so steep, you can get pushed down wind and your sail will be super powered up by the time you are landing, I wouldn’t recommend that. So choose a good ramp, try to go straight up, as vertical as you can, bring your boom close to your waist, look back over your shoulder and try to point straight down for your landing, also keep your knees tucked in.
