Tacking

Always tack facing backwards and practice lots in very rough conditions. You must learn how to pick the correct wave to tack on and only experience will teach you this. You must be bold and once you have started the tack you must go through and get out on the wing as quickly as possible whether you are up to your neck in water or not, it doesn't matter for if you time things correctly when you sheet in the wind should lift you clear.
