My planing jibes are for sure more safe if I initiate them from port tack. And as I mentioned everything was faster and safer on this tack until recently, where i kicked the 30 knot barrier on my iSonic on starboard tack (in harsh chop far from flat and ideal conditions - the iSonic is a beauty :-). Maybe it could have something to do with the local conditions as some of you mentioned.
Are we actually right handed or left handed windsurfers???
