Default upwind sailing

anyone got any secrets about pointing high into the wind. in light wind can be quite difficult getting back to place where first started from. rigging sail with tighter leech, stiffer larger fin, lower boom,using heals in footstaps to lift windward rail are what works best for myself. a large sail rigged on too small a board i find the hardest to point.getting weight in harness forward as much as possible to nose of board is probably best known technique.
