Morocco’s Boujmaa Guilloul (Starboard, Severne) has taken the reigns of windsurfing’s new era of combination moves, with the creation of another brand new move, The Black Shot.
After mastering the Seadi-invented push-forward, the Moroccan saw the opportunity to invent his own combo move. The Black Shot links a Crazy Pete with a switch stance forward loop. The result is something quite breath taking.
Boujmaa: “I remember the first time i landed a Crazy Pete, i thought it might be possible to make a combo by linking in a forward, but i never had the courage to go for it, and never tried it really. But lately I’ve seen so many freestylers that constantly invent new moves, so i realized it was still possible to do freestyle in the air, and that there was potential to come up with something new. I still have more ideas to come, i just need to step up and overcome my fear.”
For those aspiring to attempt a Black Shot, Boujmaa claims, “it’s an easy move. I think people who are not scared of heights can do it really easily. The only secret is to not let go and not think too much, it's easier than doubles and push forwards.”
