Hi Unregistered,

You come from a FreeRide Board with a lot of volume longer and narrow to a SlalomRace board with low volume shorter and wider.

The planning surface is shorter but wider and this kind of shape need more power to start

Basically your FreeRide board can start planning with no pumping even in the harness while the SlalomRace need more power to get going but as soon you get planning it's just accelerate much more and more easy to control when get gust. Slalom board of this range will plane earlier in this case.

The good base also to trim your board is :

All straps in the middle position and mast base at the recommend position. Boom fix at eye level with long Adjustable Harness Line.

Pump more downwind than your FreeRide board with more power and should be ok when get planning.

Make another test in a bit more wind to understand how works the board and when you get use to it in less wind and less wind.

Hope this help and if you other tip, I sure that other guys will give you also

All the best
