One of my most recent tries... feedback?

I'd say my sail is a bit too sheeted in (with the board) et not enough across when popping, maybe body a bit too outboard too?

1. Park in the shade.
2. Take board with you at work.
3. Leave board at the spot.

I tried them both in 85 and 77.
In terms of pure planing the fsw will be more passive (planes and stays on a plane with less/no effort). The wave cult may be softer over chop and will feel more conn ...

Wow that's crazy mate! I found the Maui Sails full shim too soft and slippery. The Nolimitz one is a bit heavier but doesn't slip at all. Can't remember if I needed to sand rough the inside?
