I found the same, that the board seems to be sinking towards the end of the wave, but from what you have said, it sounds like I am to far back on the board. I tried to go further up the board, when paddling and catching a wave, but ended up face planting .. ... practice makes perfect in the end though

I think this is my surfing motto.
With golf you can understand what to do and then do it over and over until you get it right.
With surfing, you can understand what to do, then do something else wrong and never even get to practice the thing you wanted to fix. Or have to wait 2 weeks for waves. Or get to practice for 10 seconds in your 1 hour surf.
But then it all comes together for one wave - and you know why you keep trying.
