(just my descriptions) They are both wave jumps, but happen with the right/wrong mixtures of wave hight, wind and throttle. For a stall you need lots of wind straight on the nose, a big wave, and when you kill the throttle before the top, the wave passed through and you hang in the air almost still at the same angle you left the wave
The power float is with same wind .. but fom behind, bout force 6 is good, trim is critical, and you power off the wave, take off and 'fly' into the back of the next one landing with a full hull length splash perfectly on the back of the next wave, then repeat ..... for ever
That gets your spray rails working
but throttle has to be just right, and if trim is wrong and too bow down .. look out for the mother of all stuffs
