okay, if your base is back, boom high, where are your harness lines? they should be be pretty far back. try to find balance point when lit up. also, try this trick. hook in AFTER you get in the straps. gotta sail unhooked to wave ride anyway.....

Thanks, yes in higher winds for the sail size I'm definitely in the straps before hooking in. I think I was rigging the sail wrong for the conditions - I had too little downhaul and outhaul- sail has a very large belly behind the mast which is fine for lighter winds. I won't be sailing until next weekend but I appreciate the suggestions. I just purchased a 2011 Ultrasonic so there is no pressure for the windSup to be a light-wind planer. It can be for me the fun all-rounder it was designed to be.
