Default Waterstarting for tall sailors...

Hi

I was out at the weekend on my Carve 145 and decided to try and learn waterstarting as I was completely over powered with my 5.5

For the most part I am ok i.e. getting the rig to fly, controlling the direction of the board and powering the rig up. Problem comes when I'm trying to get up onto the board. I'm 6'7" and weigh about 95kg so I find myself so far away from the board that when I've got my back foot on the board the sail is still struggling to pull me up.

I'm sure there is a simple link that I need to learn to complete the waterstarts but can't work it out! Any ideas??

Many thanks
