This photo shows a windsurfer:
“In 1948, 20-year-old Newman Darby was the first to conceive the idea of using a handheld sail and rig mounted on a universal joint so that he could control his small catamaran—the first rudderless sailboard ever built that allowed a person to steer by shifting his or her weight in order to tilt the sail fore and aft.”
Doesn’t it remind the way the pilot of the Broom_Flyer controls his flight?
What acts as the centerboard or Fin(p.s. yes people shred without a center board, very skilled people)? You will notice a trend in sailboarding, most companies are going to hydrofoils to make the barrier to entry easier for beginners. I am sure this has something to do with the mechanics you are speaking of. Also the water below is a pretty corrective force compared to the wind above, do you expect a similar counter acting force with the propellor on top and bottom?
