Have been trying to really plane though jibes and have been
experimenting with laying sail down, stepping, not stepping, etc.
Yesterday had real weird sensation.
While flying into a turn, I pressured the back rail fairly hard. Since
it's been a little bumpy, I was having problems with the front edge
digging in and slowing me down. Thus I thought if I put more
weight/pressure on the back, the front leeward edge wouldn't dig in.
What happened on 2 jibes was that just after the turn, the board totally
stopped tracking and ploughed in a straight line. It stopped carving the
turn at all. What happened?
Did I bury the whole back edge so much that it wouldn't behave as an
