The Duck Tack is the King of Tacks! Besides being a stylish way to stay upwind, it offers great training for your ducking and backwind abilities. As a bonus, you'll be eased into sail-ducking and switch stance sailing, which is a must have skill for more advanced new school moves such as Funnels, Bobs, Burners and Culos...

Best conditions for learning the Duck Tack are flat water and a sail size between 4.5 and 6.0
