Correct, I thought the question was about paddling. With a foot drive you have a lot more power to come back against a wind and tide. The learning curve is almost instant with a Hobie Mirage while it takes a couple years to be ome a skilled paddler. It is mistake to take chances though because You own a mirage drive. Like any mechanical device it can break especialy if you ignore maintenance over the years. Its a good idea to learn how to paddle even if you own a mirage.

besides, a surf launch and landing should be done with a paddle, not a peddle. although i HAVE landed with a mirage drive, launching always gets the paddle.
