Your correct, my apologies. I just watched that section on the high speed video and see what your saying. I had a Hobie Getaway and body dragged a few times trying to board while launching so I know what you mean about them wanting to take off.When he first tried to board the boat, it took a couple of tries as he kept getting blown back into shore because the boat wanted to get blown down wind before it would develop enough speed to steer. Once he did get going, his angle up wind was very shallow. Once the boat finally got on the foils, you notice he was able to turn up wind. I was comparing to my Hobie 14 days, which never seemed to have directional stability issues, and always wanted to take off.
