The difference was that I was surfing with a bloke riding a SUP (5'9" 90 something litres). A case of money see monkey do. Also, I had even higher spacers under the rear of the mast base.
I am still struggling with the amount of rocker on that board. When I paddle onto a wave I have the nose of the board very close to the water (force of habit). I know at this angle that the foil is diving, not flying.
I am going to either paddle on further back or tilt the foil base even more. Watching this SMIK flat-bottom board today brought this home to me.
See these videos for more seeing for us monkeys:
