The float in the water has some angle to it due to the mounting position. I think that’s what works for me.
But you must have a super narrow stance?
Or a big rear wing...
I stand quite some behind the mast, for better waveriding pressure when carving and in cutbacks.
I use a small stab for much more liveliness, which means you stand even further back now.
See here, even in a narrow stance, quite some distance behind the mast - and when riding waves, I stand further wide stance:
On my normal smaller board than above, the stance is the same, this was just a picture I had where easy to see.
But I know some stand almost on top of the mast?
I only do that when riding with super narrow stance, cruising, but not for normal riding.
My point is only, that it is not a solution for everyone, to change board like that, as we ride so different.
Still interesting about the change - does it stay on its side when you move it further forward, but not when it is rear?
