Sailboard - more wind

The problem in the previous session was a lack of wind. Not this time - 20 to 30 knots.
Struggled, getting up, falling down and spending more time in the water than out if it. Lost a lot of ground and had to walk back to get the car. On reflection there are these dilemmas/problems:
  • Enough wind to waterstart -v- too much wind for the foil,
  • Chop causes accidental turns that instantly get out of control,
  • The foil is still diving when the board is level,
  • Uphaul in the straps seems fine in the video below but this was not my experience on either day.
At least I came away with an idea on where to put the footstraps.
So it is back into the shed and modify the board.
