I stopped using an uphaul probably over 18 years ago for all my planing style boards. My largest sail is an 8.3, but it's still relatively easy to waterstart in planing type conditions (winds averaging 11-12 mph). If the wind drops too much, things get a lot more sketchy and difficult. When the wind tends to be up and down in nature, I will often relax and wait for a puff to fill in to waterstart.
