set up this topic for anyone who needs help with a trick or basic surfing, at least past standing up. i'm sure there are a lot of pretty experienced guys that can show us a few pointers.
i myself have a problem with turning and positioning myself on the wave. as soon as i stand up i can't seem to get in the pocket and by the time i DO stand up, the wave already breaks and it's too late. also when i try to get in the pocket, as im turning i always pearl. maybe it's because im just leaning. is there a certain way to move your feet? like do u pivot your front foot or something? or maybe its because i live in south florida and the waves are mush.
