Instability while planing
Hi Roger, Hi All,
Weather still a bit cold here on the South coast of England, but getting out a little. I have a rather non-specific question on technique, but hope that I might get a little help and/or suggestions.
I am only starting my second season and whilst I am regularly planing,conditions permitting, once on the plane I loose control very quickly. The board seems to start to " snake " a bit like a speed wobble on a motorbike. This becomes increasingly exaggerated and usually results in an early bath.
I am not yet getting into the straps or harness. I am sailing a Carve 145 with standard 52 cm fin and a range of sails from 5m to 7.8m. I weigh 170 lbs and am 5'6". (Not sure you need this info but thought I would provided it anyway!)
Any thoughts on how to cure this would be most appreciated.
