My call is to get out into the waves and into more gnarly conditions. Push your conditions limit. Keep practicing the toeside and ride some swells/waves.
Do some adventure riding. Upwind/downwind sessions where you tack 2-3km upwind and back. That gets your up/down wind and swell riding ability on point.
Embrace speed. Go as fast as you dare, then try to go faster again. So much of hydrofoiling is being able to handle speed and control it.
