Push versus pull?

Hello. It seems all efoils (that I have seen) use a pusher prop arrangement. Has anyone tried a puller prop - prop in front of the mast? Pros and cons? Most aircraft use puller configuration - more efficient as the prop has cleaner flow to work in.

Search for “the other way around” in this forum. I did not get to the point of riding but it was built.

The big reason is safety. With a puller you will hit things with the prop first.
