what's the tip you feel to share? taking off grabbing the rails or not? angling the board or not? taking off in the lip/foam or shoulder?
Well of course each wave is different but do what you feels best at the time. (piss poor advice i know)
Rail grabbing is not a technique I prefer, but then I'm not dropping in on much over 5ft!
If you're talking bigger waves then take off straight followed by a nice bottom turn to line yourself up.
Avoid take off's in the foam, that's what happened to me the other day but for once i didn't get smoked & actually made it, hence the level of stoke i got!
I'm still learning the ropes myself ... remember the more you get in, the more you get out!
