Ever wanted to wow the crowds with something more dazzling than a shuffled tack but found yourself unable to pronounce the moves, let alone give them a go? Well the ‘Showin’ Off’ series is the ultimate how-to freestyle manual. In the first two programmes Peter Hart reveals the secrets behind over 30 moves.
In programme #1 he explains the thinking behind the equipment and tweaks it for the job. He then identifies the skills needed for tricky sailing before moving on to a flurry of straight line and carving tricks including the lay-down duck, switch foot duck, monkey, Essex and back wind gybes, the carving 360°, aerial gybe, willy skipper, spin logo, vulcan, spock, lollipop and autorotator. If that’s not enough, you’ll witness the first ever performances of ‘Park the Boat’. ‘Flying Prince Charles’ and ‘Beach the Whale’.
To help him spin and twist his way through the acrobatic maze Peter has gathered a dream team from the World’s top ten. We have Barbados’ inimitable Brian Talma, Holland’s master of spin Peter Volwater, the UK’s outlandish Ant Baker, from Switzerland the brilliant ladies World Champion Karin Jaggi and to prove that freestyle is not the sole domain of svelte, rubber-limbed adolescents, there is 120kg speed sailing icon Dave White. Let’s not forget Nobby, the ultimate freestyle fall guy – watch, identify but please don’t imitate.
Filmed on the legendary waters of Neilson’s centre in Vassiliki on the Greek Island of Levkas, Showin’ Off #2 is spectacular, funny and has become the freestyle bible.
