Learn to LUNAR ORBIT by doing exercises in the video!

What is it?

At least 180° horizontal angle rotation starting in front surf position and flowing into a back loop or back cartwheel. It is a reverse version of the Mc Nasty. However, Lunar Orbit one can be finished with an additional rotation end of the cartwheel.

Step by Step

  1. Start at the front surf.
  2. Do a forward power stroke to push you more on the green finishing the stroke in a rudder position.
  3. Look at the leading blade and rotate your body engaging opposite edge.
  4. Look downstream at the leading blade and rotate your body while driving your upstream hip into the green water and engaging the edge.
  5. Increase your edge to get vertical on the stern and roll your legs above and then over your body until your boat has rotated approximated 180º.
  6. Looking around to upstream, spot your landing, roll your wrists and turn your back sweep stroke into a push stroke to smash the bow down, finishing in a half cartwheel end.
