I am having issues with the wing’s edge touching the water causing the wing to flop forward and yanked out of my hands. It seems like a taller person (I’m 5’-7") has an advantage as his wing is higher off the water’s surface.
When I stand on the board and get moving I’m going at a slight angle to downwind. Once I feel comfortable I turn slightly downwind to gain speed and get on foil. In order to gain speed the leading edge of the wing is almost straight up and down causing the tip of the wing to touch the water.
Should I be turning more downwind and thereby the wing can be positioned at a, say, 45 degree angle as opposed to 90 degrees? I’m on a 5M wing.
