Thanks, I tried that and many other variants but didn't make upwind so well. I knew conditions were poor for the effort, dead onshore with waves but decided to see if I could edge out anyway. One of the things I tried was to edge out feet in the straps but foil inclined off the bottom try to to make to deep water. Even that didn't work surprisingly, it just wouldn't make to windward that much. Should clock side shore in a couple of days and will have at it again.
Thanks for the tips Hawaiis. Question, what is the best technique to be able to body drag as close to the wind as possible with the original aluminum Rush Randle setup?
Back hand on kite bar, front hand on front strap of foilboard, either tail out or head out, fly superman style just like a regular surfboard.
