i use my tomcat solo for day trips only. you do sit pretty high compared to a hyside or others. i'm just used to it i guess.
try using thigh straps. they really help you feel more in control of it, instead of the feeling of just sitting on top of the thing. tomcats have those webbing loops along the floor. i used 1.5in camstraps for my thigh straps. be sure to use biners on the web loops or the straps will burn through em.
them straps make it into a really nimble duck, even though i'm at the top end of it's weight limit.
All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine. - Spicoli
