Backside Aerial Backloop – Philip Köster

Two days ago Martin Haglev filmed this perfect Backloop on the way in at Pozo Izquierdo, Gran Canaria. We saw other windsurfers trying this maneuver (and we were at many events), but we never saw a clean landing like this live.

This is for sure different than a frontside backloop off the lip but this Koster loop is also very sick. So hard to go back in front of the wave with such a small wave. Koster powers so fast into the wind. Very sick.

This is NOT an aerial backloop. Ricardo’s was done downwind, while surfing, as a proper off the lip. This is just a normal backloop. Yes it’s done off a wave and it’s landed back but it doesn’t matter. It’s onshore and it’s jumped going upwind as you normally would.
Get REAL, people.

you’re right. Ricardo set’s the bar. kosters and marcilios backloops just done in onshore winds over a wave… we can see this on lakes as well…

cheers

To date the only other sailor that I have seen pull off a backside off the lip backie in Pozo is Browzinho. I have heard the pros discussing it as the most difficult wave jump…. getting the highest scores. Few are the chosen ones…

His style is less formated, but it is a clean landing.
