That is interesting because for me the straps forward brought stability but not maneuverability in terms of easier turning.

For me the two are opposites. The more stable it is, the less easy it is ...

What is interesting about smaller sails is I am finding there is very little difference between a 7, 6, and 5.2 sail as long as the boom and mast stay the same.

The reason for this I believe is be ...

I am having some fantastic sessions on the Naish Hover 142 and Naish Thrust Windsurf foil.

To sum it up I feel like I am surfing a short board because it is so easy to turn, but I am surfing it on ...

To clarify when I said "move everything up" I meant everything above the foil, not the foil itself. So the foot straps as far forward as they will go, and like Wind NC said, move the wings a ...

The slingshot is a very front foot foil, so it ...
