i bought a 6'1 shortboard but can't surf it.
i am 5'6 about 140 lbs,
anyway been practising the shortboard pop up ALOT and can't do it on my shortboard,
i can go to the line up and sit on my board and can paddle pretty fast on it...its a tuflite.
every time i go to pop up my feet go to the side of my board like when i am sitting for a wave,
when i practise i can pop up pretty fast (on land with board in sand),
surfing conditions have been 3 maybe 4 foot max lately can't wait till winter that when best surf (ireland)
i can feel the power of the wave but when i popped up the last time i got my feet on but then the wave passed me (i guess thats a start).....?
i have a mini mal but been catching wave on it for a while now, don't wanna practise on it anymore so i gave it to my dad.......
when should i pop up on a shortboard?
p.s don't wanna hear about why i should use the mini mal
also i use ripstik can ollie and kickflip on it,
i make a indo board old skateboard deck and bottle can stay for like 10 mins at a time
also i am pretty good skateboarder like i can treflip, kickflip etc.
been using this board about 3 weeks!
