I'm a beginner, still, for like a year now. I can get up ok on small waves, but I'm still nervous about catching the bigger waves.
My biggest problem is that I can't seem to paddle into a wave. What I like doing is standing next to my board and then jumping onto it in front of a wave. It gives me strong movement forward and I usually get up.
I think, that this is way not cool though, everyone else seems to be sitting and bobbing.
What should I do to paddle/sit and bob and catch better? Why is it better to do that then do my "stand and jump"?
I have a 7'6" egg shape, but I'm a little big at 220lbs.
