early planing using mast back and nose high
glad to see this post !!!
as i was there with you yesterday, i actually commented in my journals about how you were riding "nose high" yesterday
now i understand why
based on what i have seen and read - does this apply in marginal winds or all winds ??
ie this idea of putting the mast foot back and pumping to get over the "leading wave" ?
yesterday winds were 15 to 25 mph and thus over 20 knots at times
i was over with my MS-2 8-oh and yet always try to keep the board flat in those conditions
my understanding was that in good winds you keep the board flat for MORE SPEED
since i was over and wanted to get back on the board yesterday, i actually moved the mast forward when i came in after the first runs - obviously tightened the outhaul as well !!
then i ripped across the river with the Select fin screaming - need to sand it more
after yesterday's sailing, i was quite cold - okay during the session
need to find a trick to warm up after !!!
