    Was loving the forward looping until Saturday when managed to break my finger - now that's an injury I wasn't expecting from a forward loop. Looks like quite a few months before I'll be doing my next forward or any windsurfing but still hasn't put me off and I think it's that kind of attitude that helped me with this particular move

    Did manage a couple of runs before the injury and managed to use the flymount. Loop attempts not very good (was still warming up) but a much better angle to see what's going on so will start using the flymount much more and highly recommend using some kind of mast mount & video software that allows you to do slow motion if you want to see what is really happening.... http://www.youtube.com/user/jsurf111 - see Hayling loop

    Bad luck Shep 1, hope it mends soon. good footage though - try putting the camera lower on the mast about 1m above the boom cutout I think it makes for a more dramatic angle anyway!

    Thanks Rod. I'll try to position the flymount lower next time out, assuming I remember your advice in 2-3 months time.

    Thanks Na-omi. Pleased with the traction kit. As they used a local anesthetic I got to watch them make it - quite simple really - they drilled a couple of holes in my finger, then threaded through some wire and built the traction construction - all very Heath Robinson (but very skillful really).

    I thought I had all 'protection' bases covered for the looping session on the SB course with my helmet & impact vest but with hindsight I missed out the hand protection, I'll be using a pair of boxing gloves next time I go looping
