Ive recently got a 7"2 minimal, I love it, Ive definately improved my pop-up technique along many other things. However ONE thing that is really holding me back and getting me frustrated is my stance once poped up
What happens is I catch a wave and pop up (rarely using the rails now) However i cant find the perfect balance. Im either to far forward and water overlaps the nose of the board or im to far back and I fall out of the wave and stall.
When im too far forward and water starts to overlap the nose I lean back to justify this but by then ive lost most of the force behind me.
What can you advise me to do? Where should i position myself on the board and should I be leaning in any direction?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
