Simon Bornhoft explains on how to take your gybing to the next level and give your Dyno that extra zip, grip and a real surge of scintillating speed through the corners.
If you’ve struggled to control over powered gybes, challenging chop, excessive board speed or you’re just wanting a faster exit, being able to overseheet your rig and carve harder is a massive part of your progression. So we’re going to help take you and the Dyno into the faster, tighter turns with added confidence and greater exit speed.
