I have noticed that sometimes when I catch a wave the nose of my longboard drops off the front of the wave and I go head first over the front of the wave. I have been positioning myself farther back on the board and that still does not seem to correct the problem. I feel like I am too far out on the wave when it breaks. What can I do to correct this???
Also, I have rented different boards and I find I like 8'4"- 9' funboard/longboards the best...
I would like to purchase a board and I have been looking at the CI Waterhog...(8'6") Is there any opinions on this board? Good for my first new board? Too pricey???
Thanks for the help!

justloafin: I weigh 165 and am 6' tall... I like your advice and I will definitly try that...You're right...the waves average knee to waist high, the last time I went they were about chest high on occasion...
What is the surf like in Wilmington??? I have family up there and I was thinking about going up there to visit and try out the surf up there.
Anybody else got anything?
