Hi Dan. It might be partly skill, as Ola suggests, and partly that the Kode is actually more compact than the Acid 74. It is 5 cm shorter, and a bit less wide with a slighlty narrower tail, it might be all it takes to make it less cumbersome in high wind. For me the Acid becomes an handful in the very vertical chop that develops at Candlestick and Crissy in overpowered 3.7.
