I love this thread! Good to hear I'm about at the point where I need to start learning bottom turns and I'm having all the same problems described in broseph619's original post. It's been frustrating me lately. I always seem to bury the rail and that's usually the end of my ride, I always seem to get out in front of the pocket where the wave is pretty mushy. Start working on a cut back or a turn back down the face of the wave or put pressure on your back foot to raise the nose slightly and stall the board then just put pressure on the front foot again, a little later in the lerning process you can try the back foot pressure with a swinging of the front foot to drive the board around a stall turn and then repeat your bottom turn technique I angle my takeoffs too because I want to avoid pearling.
Some awesome tips in this thread. I'm looking forward to heading out this weekend and trying a few of them.
