I Need advice on setup!
It was my third try learning in flat water how to use a fda+ with very good success. I could stand up and foil and go smooth and steady, with the motor 25 cm from the board.
On the third day I tried with a smaller board (47 l ) and I was surprised that it was almost the same if not better than with the 75 L I used on the first 2 sessions.
My weight is 65kg.
On the last session I used a higher ar wing and it seemed to be better than the MAs I tried on the days before. Do ha work better than lower ar wings with fd?
Anyway I’m a bit confused with choosing the right setup,.
How can I feel backfooted ( wich I hate) and frontfooted at the same time???
I keep putting pressure on the front not to stall, I even have to be more to the front of the board than I want even with the mast all the way to the back , but at the same time my back leg is hurting???
On the last session I was tring smaller and smaller back wings and less and less shim to compensate and it was working, I think.
My worries are when transitioning to the wave it will feel completely different… Shall I setip for the waves and ignore the setup for fd since its only for catching the wave???
I’m an experienced wave wingfoiler and I’m very used to the difference between going with the wing and going on the wave but on the drive it feels completely different.
