1- not managed to get the board going fast enough to pick up the wave, been concentrating on being in the right position on the board today so that the nose is out the water by only a couple of inches and toes pointed back to avoid drag.

Also I seem to always angle myself so that I am backside on to the wave as for some reason this feels more comfortable (i'm goofy footed) is this O.k or should i try and force myself into the frontside direction first?

Took off at a slight angle and turned frontside to ride along the wave which was pretty cool seeing the wave beside me! wether or not i'll be able to do it in anything bigger for a minute, we will see.
When you say adjusting your take off for differant waves, could you give me a few examples of what might change for what type of wave please?
Thanks for all the advise, pretty pleased with my progress this week thanks to all the advise and a load of hard work.
