I think it is something similar to gollito's burner, just without going backwinded and switchstance. - A clew first burner? maybe

its not a ponch. In a ponch the sail goes upwind before the rider pops over the top, here the sail goes downwind, that means its either a clew first cheese roll or a ropey clew first spock,


something new?

i'd heard in margarita they were calling it a fanjita, my mate came back from the PWA fuerte event and said all the guys were trying to score a decent fanjita??? i heard its pretty hard to do though?

im pretty sure that it is a clew first ponch as when you watch this video in the link below it is exactly the same by kiri and its called a clew first ponch!!

My opinion is. If you call it ponch, then it should be called not a clewfirst ponch, but switchstance ponch. Because the clew doesn't pass through the wind. It's the same situation as with, for example - flaka on starboard looks nearly the same as clew first switchstance spock on port tack/

I agree.. it is a Switch Stance Ponch!!
Well slightly different... but that is the movement (just an upwind one!)!! hence why everybody learnt it so qiuck in fuerte!

Hi all, I saw your comments about the move, and as I'm thomas, the guy you can see on the photo sequence , I just wanted to tell my opinion.....
If some people ( like continentseven )initially called this move a clew first ponch, it's beause they didn't know how call it , and it's true that it "looks like " a ponch ,more or less , and the sail is clew first at the beginning... But the rotation has nothing to do with a ponch, as someone already said: a ponch is an upwind rotation , this move is a downwind rotation. Only one more thing: to make this move, I ( and everybody else I guess) just go full speed , straight (in a goiter, you have to make a curve before jumping ),and put my sail down(like a backside air) and try to turn around, like in a cheeseroll .. so I think this move is between a clew first cheeseroll and a clew first shove it spock...

and to reply to Ben ( hi Ben! ) ,Telling this move is a "switch goiter, but an upwind one" you can also say a clew first spock is a switch flaka, but an upwind one!! The comparaison is the same !! Then a clew first flaka is an eslider, but an upwind one as well, etc... Don't forget about the way you go!!

ooopps.. that told me!!! ...ok, I'll go for the 'clewfirst shovit spock' then! ...although I still think it's a very similar motion to a switch goiter (as the sail hits the water) ...Anthony's one looks the best in my opinion! Shame he crashes!!
Keep up the good work.. see you in Sylt!

i think the that the guy that said clewfirst cheeseroll is spot on

it?s not a ponch?because on a ponch you throw the sail into the wind
though it is quite like a burner without switch and the first bit of the sail through

Its impossible without rubber legs and no fear.

I reckon it's a clutter-flip ! Frederik Stein created the gutter-flip, which is a shuvit into cheeseroll, and this is just a clew-first gutterflip. Or its a clew-screw ... a clew-first cheese-roll, but those have been around for a while and this definitely looks new!

It's like a CF flatwater cheese roll in my opinion ... it only looks new because it hasn't been done on flatwater before.
