Today I went out with my 5'8" fish board. I know I know, it's way short but it's the only board I could afford right now. So I got way out there where the waves were pretty big. I'd turn and start paddling to catch a wave, and when it felt as though it was picking me up I'd go to pop up and the wave would pass me by. I know it could be a number of problems, but any you think of could you mention so I could work on it Monday?
