Default the 30 knot day...

Hey roger!

I got out today on my 5.0 (its an old sail) and my Go 139... super powered up, it was a blast. I got sailing, into the front strap but still can't get into that back one... and was pretty happy until the wind shifted. Large chop started building up. Up to knee high in some cases. Going upwind on the go was a chore and a half. Bouncing around everywhere, randomly catching air (and with the back foot not in the footstrap... BAM). I was just wondering if there is anything I can do to "smooth things over" with my board and chop. Downwind is fine as you just seem to pick up speed and skip over them, but upwind isn't as fun.

attached is a picture of me sailing around with my Go. It is a great board, the more powered up, the faster it wants to go. It just seems to keep accelerating!!!

also if you can critique my stance. I think if i raise the boom up a bit more and kind of straighten my legs, i will have a more controled stance. Especially when i get in that GD back strap!
