" If you've got too much volume in your board you'll probably go real fast as you'll always be planing around on top of the water. But, you'll lack control because you simply won't be able to get enough board in the water through your turns. If you don't have enough volume in your board you'll always be able to sink a rail for control through turns, but the rails will overload and you won't have any speed coming out of your turns. If, however, you've got a correct amount of volume well distributed in your board you'll be able to weight and un-weight the rails of your board controlling and generating speed out of your turns.

So it's my boards fault I suck! :evil:

i guess so haaha greta comment mate
