Default technique gurus!!

I recently read in a windsurfing article, that when to obtain better speed and angle when windsurfing (it was directed towards formula windsurfing) that actually, you should not twist your body to windward as it actually causes your sail to have less surface area for the wind to act on by tilting to one side.

All this time I was convinced by myself and my friends that only by twisting your body to windward, and looking where you want to go will allow you to achieve your desired speed and angle.

Any comments on this?
