In smoother waters, I use a lower boom since it enables a better body position int he wave riding.

But for you: yes, try the boom a bit higher.
Thanks for both your responses. I'll try running my boom higher next time. Sadly I'll be on a different sail as my North is getting repaired so this adds a variable to testing, but owell.
