The Swedish windsurfer Markus Rydberg sent us a Pushloop variation, which he calls “The Viking Loop”. He did not land it perfectly yet, but he will. It looks pretty scary. Markus Rydberg: “It basically started with me trying to get my tweaked pushloops in on port tack. Got one really wrong that Gustav caught on camera. We figured out, while watching it on the computer, that it could be a new kind of loop. So I went out and tried it on purpose a few times and during my last day in Pozo I finally landed it! It’s a pretty sketchy move and feels a bit scary being upside down and back winded in the air, but it’s a good adrenaline rush and it looks pretty cool! It feels really awesome to have come up with a new move and I’m super stoked!!”
