NYVikesGuy wrote:So I recently bought my first real board. Started surfing earlier this summer, and bought a cheap soft top. Didn't take long to want something better, so I just picked up a used longboard. Absolutely loving it in the early going, but I feel like I'm struggling to find the sweet spot; that is, the right spot lengthwise on the board. It feels like the back end is dragging, or the front is too low. I can't seem to find that right point.
Any tips on how to get the best balance there?

However if you are trying to find the sweet spot for paddling the best way is to play in the white water. Catch a few waves and experiment with your position. The right position will have you coasting effortlessly in to the beach. When you find this position - mark it! This is your sweet spot.

The question is off topic, and I'm not sure what you mean by "each of its incarnations" ( The Earl is a 10'6" in the Future Primitive series ) but the Earl's price is US$496,000.
