Ya have seen your vids that why I was asking. I am 200+/- and have had my wave out in 25-30mph winds and dont get a hull flying...usually end up stuffing a bow before that happens!

Do you sit as far back as you can on your Wave? I have had my son (age 12) with me & got a hull flying. Do you have water in your boat?

Yup in big winds I am wedged under the tiller.
No water in the hulls...least not very much.

I think you need to find some BIG wind (25 mph to 30 mph) with relatively smooth water if that it possible. Some smaller lakes can give you smooth water even with BIG wind.

Some said it took 20+wind to fly Hull. I can fly with less wind than that

My boat is a 97...so maybe my sail is just blown out. It looks good, and is still a lil crisp. But maybe I am missing some potential power.

LOL, if I could not fly a hull on a Wave I would not own a Wave.
