The duck jibe is not only a stylish sight to behold, but it's a foundational skill for some freestyle tricks. Learning to duck jibe will boost your confidence and enhance your carving skill. Not to mention, you'll realise how easy it was. In fact, some say it's easier than the usual carve jibe.
Try to grab far forward on the boom (in front of the lines), if you don't make it you can double shift down the boom (as in the picture above). Ideally it should be one whole sweeping motion.
Now all you need to do is sheet in and then adjust your feet back into normal sailing position. Remember to enter with speed and duck the sail a little early! It also sometimes helps to glance down at the mast foot to keep your body in the right position.
