Yah, i was experimenting with that and it does make a HUGE difference. I got my first fully planing carve jibe yesterday. Sick feeling on a 5.8 and hypersonic reasonably powered. Just carve around, then flip and hook in, and you are sitll planing!!!!!!!!!! I didn't realize it untill I was able to put my feet in the straps right away :-O and no pumping needed. Also learned the importance of a wide arc. I always thought you had to lay the sail down too. but i was told you don't so i just came over the board and extended from hand etc and i had way more speed :-) This better not be the last sesh of the season for me though....
