Is your foil kit perfectly balanced at any speed? Meaning, your foot pressure balance is the same at low speed and high speed?

Mine is, and this never happens to me. Itís the only wild idea I can come up with.

Iím real particular about getting this balance/low drag setup spot on. I never have back foot or front pressure at any speed.
Have you or could you post the process to achieve this? I used The KD balance method to start but my tuning seems to be pretty scattershot. Usually I try frowning and some incantations but that doesn't seem real effective.

Seems like a solution is starting to become clear. Thank you.

Good to know. Thanks for the input. The learning process is fun if sometimes befuddling.

Thanks for all your guidance. I have had pretty good success moving the mast fore and aft depending on conditions. Yesterday I had it nearly full aft and I was standing probably 4 inches further foreword as well. It was windy. A 5m would have been great, but I hate a thousand dollar equipment fix if I could be using a more effective technique.

You know that sounds right. I think I have some negative transfer from windsurfing. My brain probably wants to load a fin instead of fly a foil.

I am happily foiling along and look ahead and see a gust coming. I would love to take that energy and accelerate but instead I just climb and have to de-power to avoid a breach, shift my chunky butt, and re-power. I understand why this happens, but I just seem to be reacting rather than anticipating. In a similar fashion when I turn downwind to a broad reach and overrun the waves they push me too high as well.
I have found that usually an instructor or coach can make a simple corrective statement that clicks with me. Any tips would be appreciated.
