Default full speed

Hey roger. I was wondering. In lighter winds when the wind does not have enough strength to hold your entire weight in the harness (you have enough wind to plane but not enough to totally hike out with the harness cause you fall backwards) how do you get your weight into the harness to get into the straps. do you raise/lower your hips, do you sheet in more etc. once I hook in I try to get more and more of my weight into the harness so I can get into the back footstrap so my weight is forced through the mast foot making the board go faster but I keep feeling like I am going to go into the drink behind me.

PLease help as I do not like to go into the drink backwards when I am going faster. especially hooked in.

thanks a lot,

thomas
