Is there a "rule of thumb" for the fore and aft seating position on a ski?
When sitting at rest while on the ski, should the tail be sunken or should the bottom be fairly level with the surface of the water?
It seems that my seating position sinks the tail quite a bit and makes for a slow paddle out as the ski is dragging its butt though the water. Take offs are also a bit slow, it's hard to get the ski moving.
By adding a temporary foam block at the rear of the seat and moving the seating position forward by about an inch, and also repositioning the fins to match has made quite a difference, but it still seems slow on the paddle out.
On a wave it surfs very well, but find that leaning forward improves the handling a bit.
Anybody have any insight?
