    You can try to add weight to get them down in the water. This might help them pull harder......maybe move the attachment point back to force the board to be drug through water almost sideways rather than being lead like a dog on a leash???? Just a few thoughts

    I attached duck decoy weights to the bottom of each board. They run lower and pull harder away from the boat.

    Do you guys run with the 'shock absorbers' when you weight the boards down? I have Cannon large boards and the guys at the wharf talked me into trying them out. I notice positive difference in larger waves.

    some guys add a rudder to the board to pull harder.Most guys add weight to bottom first.Have seen position of screw in board also affect the pull.
