Default RE: Uphauling a 10 m sail on shortboard (iSonic 133)

You also have to remember that the sail balances the board to some extent and as soon as it becomes clear of the water the point of max float suddenly moves back so you need to shift your weight accordingly.

It's often best to wait for a gust so once the sail rises you can hang off the boom for support and immediately get some forward motion.

All this sounds complicated but a little light wind practice was all it took me to nail it.
