Go Joe question

I have a Go Joe on my Litewave Wing ( 161x 44) big board. When I fall and need to get back to the board, the board really struggles to get down wind. For some reason the board will stay locked in a 90 degree angle to the wind, And not spin down wind so the Go Joe can catch some wind and do its thing. I am thinking it may be because the board has almost no rocker. Or possibly I need to change the angle of the Go Joe on the board. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I also would like to say that I think the Go Joe is a fantastic invention and have one on both of my boards. Even If it struggles with my big board I know where it is, and that is worth the price alone.

Clearly Not but you may be the only one on such a big wide board. I could tell you about smaller boards butt that would hardly help

The wing is my light wind weapon.  I can ride upwind with my 15m flite in 12mph wind. The Go Joe works great on my smaller Naish that has lots of rocker. I was just curious if it was size or a rocker issue.

Hi Matth,
Have you tried changing the angle of the Go Joe yet? I’d like to know if you’re able to figure out some kind of good solution.
Good luck!

Go joe is really amazing invention for all kite riders.
