I’ve got a new i11s which I love. One of the reasons I got it was it’s convertibility to an SUP. I have only used it that way twice, and have only been on regular solid rented SUPs twice. What I noticed is that it seems difficult to maintain a straight path. It turns immediately towards whichever side I paddle on. Although not 100% consistent, it will often do this on the first stroke resulting in a zigzag across the water. Is there a specific paddle technique? I didn’t notice this issue on the rental SUP, and I don’t notice it when I watch others. Or is this i11s specific? I did have the factory skeg on, but it is at the very back, I think for maneuverability.

I am thinking a cure might be to add a skeg to the mirage drive plug? I have done this one of the plugs on my Oasis for when I paddle it, and it helped considerably. Unfortunately the plugs are not interchangeable.
