Nice blog Steve! I recognize every step. Came from Formula too. The silence, downwind struggle =

I laughed with the downwind walk of shame...had to do that initially as well. Now I drastically prefer going downwind because it generally aligns with the swell and makes for a more "flowy" feeling riding with the swell instead of against it.

That's my favorite part of a foilboard...you can do a big hour long downwinder back and forth riding little hips and waves, then just power back upwind and you're home in 15 minutes
