mike \m/ -- I know you understand what you are talking about.. I was thinking he wasnt committing enough to get in full control of his plane. Once on the plane, leaning forward is basically what I do.. to the point of being able to peek around the mast. without control of the plane with the footstraps, then going upwind would be a problem.

I totally agree with spyder on his 8/21 message. Steer the board upwind lean forward as to look around the mast this will sheet in the sail automatically, and look upwind to where you want to go. HAPPY SAILING AND HAVE FUN
