hi Guys.

I am trying to Dock Start with a Maliko 280. I weight 66KG. Really hard after 3 sessions. Do you guys here have any tips on what is the best wing to use, and mast height or other tips ? thanks !

280 is pretty enormous for your weight, so if it isn't in the optimal position it will rear up and try to kill you.....even at walking pace.

I think the 200 might be better, maybe Evan the Iwa for a gent of your weight.

The mast....I think for starting out you should try to find a dock of the right height and length. Sometimes you have to drop the board on the water and mount, other times you can run it up to flying speed and hop on.

what board are you on?
