All the way back for the initial ride is typical. Ride the board, not the foil = step 1.
You will likely slide it forward an inch or 2 later to find the happy balance point.
Wing size comes in to play as well. Larger is usually placed more rearward.
Good you wrote "usually", and it might fit in this case, as if Slingshot wings I assume big ones are copies of Moses Onda at least, you need to put it more rearward with the 633 yes.
But brand specific, on the Ketos big and really big wings it is neutral not depending on wing, or, if any small difference not much, it should be moved a tad forward instead.
So depends on the very hydrofoil and design, but for Onda 633 it it true the front wing hops "up" if you dont, and must be same with Slingshot then.
How are other bigger surf wings in this respect, any inputs from owners?
Neutral, or also need more front foot pressure, or rear foot pressure?
Could be nice to have others input, apart from the the Onda and Ketos (we know quite well here now), as there seems to be lots of "Surf" wings from many brands now
Not that it matters, as I dont assume anyone using the surf wings for waves, use straps, but some use these for learning, thus strap(s), and here it is vital with the trim.
