I also felt that with the waves around waist high and the shorter mast (less ability to pump), I could use some extra lift so I moved the foil up in the tracks.
This was a pretty good setting for the conditions. I only had one breach and several good rides. The force seemed more balanced between both feet (kinda why I breached on that one wave - got too relaxed). I felt good paddling for waves I would normally have used my longboard or SUP to catch before this setup. I even caught a few green waves (unbroken) - as little as a month ago, I was a little leery about paddling for greenies - I felt like I couldn't control the extra lift that came with moving faster on a steeper takeoff. Now it's just more fun to catch greenies that are ready to be ridden.
Super fun session!
