thinking i should have gotten a moses! (actually asked them for quote before taaroa)
instead, i tried learning with a sword. and sort of learned: foiling on both tacks (heelside), 6m, 8m and 10m kites, 78kg, no swell, single front strap with no rear strap, mostly upwind... mostly, with non-foiling starboard jibes only, and no toe-side riding on either tack. yet! (which took some time including thinking about giving up and selling it and repairing rear wing seat after crashing during wake/ski boat towing session, which IMHO was useless!)
this was on a garage modified Pearson surf board.
all was good
then, because the pearson is falling apart (board.. not plug), i hacked up a airush sector v2 60, beveled the rails and chopped the nose.
I could not ride the new board.... got very bummed out! (it has almost no rocker compared to other board and is much shorter... guess i chopped to much off nose)
went back to crappy Pearson and continue learning.
I think it was the rocker, and length, that confused me, although it could have been strap placement?
long story but....what everyone else said: any change, board or foil, makes a difference!
you already know how to fly!
