That's what I've found too. I've had mine out in solid 2 feet overhead and once up and riding I found it handles pretty well. The takeoff is the critical part when it gets steep.

I find once up, on the spitfire it surfs steep sections OK like fattish takeoff sections followed by a barreling reform shorebreak section are fine. It certainly goes nicely off the bottom up into the lip and releases off the top nicely. Mind you I'm not talking double overhead but up to a couple of feet overhead.
