I've always marveled at how some longboarders can catch not only small waves, 1-2", but also waves that
seemingly have little power behind them. I'm 175 lbs and I ride a 10' longboard, I've been surfing many years, but try as I might I can't catch these waves.
What's the secret?

Have a 7.8" centre fin coming so will try that in a more rearward postion. If going on jaffa`s way of thinking I should get a little more drive and a not suffer too much in the turn department.
