Default Windsurf theory.

It is no windsurfing time in Holland, due to the cold weather and the ice on the lakes. So I like to spend my time in reading about windsurfing. The theory I found till so far was always very old. But I like to know,what is the reason why you have to raise your boom to plane earlier
in the same conditions or to put your mastfoot back. Is it also possible to raise your boom and
put your mastfoot forward to compensate it? An other point is bodyweight. How can I understand what happens, if we compare f.e. two persons , which differs in weight.What happens by using smaller or bigger fins ,according to position boom hight f.e. to have the same speed. All comtent is useful. I am grateful for tips to find the answers on the web.
