trust me, I'm not that good... i think on the tiny board I have just had too big a sail and too small a fin in too strong a'winds.
Yesterday on everyone's advice I took out the carve 121 with an 8.1m sail in conditions I would have always thought were too light for that board and me. Result? Absolutely brilliant, great speed, early planing, and the waterstarts were no harder than with smaller sails. gybing was as easy as ever too, ie... impossible!... just kidding, I am nearly there with my gybing. They heve been coming on ever since 2 guys told me to bend my knees more. One of them was Harty I think, in the UK WS Mag, the other was a local dude...)
