I bet there are already those that can air start. Withington et al.

Our launches are a hop in with a bit of a drag out, so you start wet. Would love to develop enough skill to hop start and stay dry, but for now am starting with a swim.

Have tried tossing the board down then trying to land on it and go but haven't ridden away dry yet.

As to dry hair.... Have had a few session where my wetsuit has dried after swim start. Always a bitch having to hop in and get fully wet just to exit.

Depends how hard you push yourself through the ride.
