I think it is precisely like on waveboards, you can not go as high upwind on your toeside - some who are really skilled and flexible might, but it is not as natural, so always a bit of a trade off.
But with a hydrofoil you go so much upwind that even if you lower the angle a bit when on toeside, you still go upwind at least
I also go a bit lower upwind on toeside, and dont know any tricks to better this, apart from practice as it gets a lot better with time.
Your first problem toeside is often the kite runs away with you, thus you get pulled downwind, so you have to fly the kite up higher to avoid getting overpowered so you can head up again.
Not very good for upwind angle at all...
I think it is just time and practice and it gets a lot better, almost as good as toeside but not fully I would say.
