Foil wobble on water

Postby Cefirmeza » Fri Mar 29, 2019 7:07 pm

Just tested an used ss hoverglide I got second hand and felt a bit wobble after take off. What causes this?
The kit looks and feels solid but there is some scratches and a small crack at the tip of the front wing. Is that it? Should it be sanded of maybe repaired so it feels smoother under feet?

Sometimes water is bumpy and wobbly and its is not apparent. Was it ok with other foil?
