Welcome to RIBnet Steve (please excuse the mess on here, but we have the decorators in , as it were)

One up, I'm guessing that you're going to see speeds in excess of 20kts. Safe? Maybe not, but you'll be wearing a lifejacket and a killcord, so who cares?

Two practical tips. Get your tube pressures right and use a tiller extension - you'll need to get your weight well forward on liftoff.

I'm taking it as read that you have your safety sh1t sorted.
