I have a hard time getting up in time. It feels like the board is leaving without me when I try to stand. I also kept falling backwards off the board. These were 4-5 waves. By the time I got up the wave was washed out. Advice me!! :idea:
Try to get up as quick as possible (obviously!)
When you are paddling into the wave and almost have it, turn your board so you are no longer facing straight into shore so your board is ready to run down the line.
Dude that so worked!! I was pointing straight in and the wave was washing out. I got a ton of waves and they lasted alot longer. I rolled a few times before I got it going. I was also watching an old guy who was doing the same that helped too. (the old guy was like 60- cause I'm 38 lol).
