Was fun today at Trail 2 with Strnad Leper...

Did you foil there?  If so, how did it work on those waves?

I'm surprised to see you get away with changing your foot position so much, and keeping your feet off the centerline when you're up on the foil. I've been watching a lot of foil video while I'm laid up with carpal tunnel surgery recovery, and most of the surfers start with their feet in place, lined up on the centerline, and positioned for the foil. I was kind of despairing of that because my geezer balance dictates where I put my feet on takeoff.

Dave K told me his cousin Junya does that, and he hasn't been able to cure him of it--he makes it work. So that's two people doing it the way I probably need to.
