New to the forums here. Hopefully I can contribute as well as learn more about the sport!
I went surfing yesterday in manasquan, nj with my brother, and this one way I caught got my attention. It was a solid good-sized wave, and it was definitely my longest ride of the day, but I couldn't do much on it because of how I popped up. I popped up and made the descent, but I noticed my front foot was way to close to my toe-side rail. How could I have fixed this because I have noticed that in the past if I lift my front foot up the board shoots right up to it because of the pressure from my back foot. I generally do not have this problem with my back foot because I can keep weight on my front foot (center of board) and move my right foot around a little.
Should I be doing a 'shuffle', and then relocate my back foot? I have even tried to put my front hand down to weight the board while I shift..
Thanks for any suggestions!
