Hey, I think we talked at First Landing the other day...what you're describing with loading the foil with your rear foot and driving the pitch angle with your front is correct, that's how you ride fast. If we can meet up I'd be glad to sort of talk you through it and help you get your gear riding the way you like.

You can also shim you stab for more down force, this will help with your front foot position
This is what I would do a bigger stab or shimm it to increase the angle that will move the pressure point forward.
