I hear you but the main characters that teach today the swoop curse to the new generation, learned how to swoop from trial and errors. Check with the swooping history video. So, there's still a bit of trial-and-error left in their teaching methods.
Me, I surfed today 5 full seconds from double fronts on a Sabre2 190 WL 1:1. 5 sec of surf can cover some ground if I'm in a downwinner.
BTW since I've begin working on double fronts I've focus on how much time I'm spending surfing rather than the distance I've surfed. I've figured that time spent parallel with the ground is less influenced by the weather conditions, WL and it might reflect better if I've made any improvements.
