its not that easy with the sailrocket as it has quite some "mystical" issues around the fin. Kiteboarder use the edge to hold them donw, the SR uses a fin. A huge difference to get a controlled cavitation build up and still a stable guidance / force diagram.

Ever had a spinout with your windsurfer, thats what they managed to ship around. THATs the amazing part.
