Hi Unreg,
You need to be planing, in stronger winds so the board is going fast enough to support your weight back in the footstraps.
In longboard mode, you can use the longer beating straps up forward to control the rail attitude (with the CB down).
Otherwise, to use the rear planning straps you need to be pretty much planning.
If you shift your weight back to the footstraps before you have enough speed for the Phantom's planning surfaces to support your weight, the nose will come up and you will lose all your speed.
