    • Yup, the way you dump all the pressure from the sail is to step forward and move your hands suddenly forward at the same time. This is how you set up for certain moves and/or tricks to make them crisp and dramatic. Without dumping the pressure the move is only a continuation of previous motion. The stall gives it its own life. Also known as "whump".

    • Yeah, I've done a couple like that. Drill from the inside to the triangular hole. Knot inside the cap, pulled as tight as it can get so that it fits inside the tube. Losing all that bungee = 3/4 ounce less weight.
    • Spills the air and then re-inflate a moment later, that requires larger hand and body movements (he is flailing!)
