What are you riding? And in what conditions? Where are you at with it?

Can you walk the board, cross step, but not quite get to the tip? If so, try stalling the board by sinking the tail, and then moving forward. Also try cutting back into the whitewater a bit, then turning back towards the open face. As you move forward the whitewater washing over the tail can help to hold it down, enabling you to move further forward. It's a fine balance. Watch lots of vids on youtube to get the idea.
