Waterstarts are one of the techniques on my list for this year. I have been reading previous posts and watching the dvds etc. I have progressed to deep water beach starts which I can more or less do. It is a bit hit and miss though.
My main confusion revolves around the positioning of the board after the rig is flying. I think I get the mast across the wind initially and then get it flying. Generally for me this means that the board is facing directly into wind. Am I meant to then swim it round so my back is to wind and the board is off on a broad reach or keep the mast in the same position but get the board to turn off the wind a bit?
