Learning new tricks is always fun and exciting but life on the water can get frustrating if you can only throw tricks going in one direction. The other tacks get boring and make you feel like a loser when you can't show off your skills. So I'm super excited to say that I can now do all my major tricks going in both directions!

Here is my new set of raleys! hoorah!

If you're struggling to get a trick going both ways, our advice is this. Wait until you've really nailed it going in one direction - so you know you can land it 98% of the time. You know how the tricks feels and what you need to do to get it right. Now try and get that same feeling the other way. It will feel alien and strange - like it's never going to work in a million years. But just commit to it 100% and go for it - it will work!
