Hi, I’m John Hickey with Florida Surf Lessons. You can reach us at www.floridasurflessons.com. We located out of Central and South Florida. More on to introduction of surfing, once you stand up on the board and you are on the board and if you notice you are on the wave and the front of your board starts to lift up. That is one of the keys to telling me that you are too far back on the board. So what you want to do is if you are right here, if you are too far back, you want to lean forward. As you are leaning forward you have your weight on your front legs.What you want to do is bring that other leg back and replace it so you are moving your body around but are you are not moving your weigh around. Your weight is staying right there in the same spot but you are moving further up on the board so that lets you go further into the waves and continues to push you into the waves. If you get too far back you cause too much drag and drag slows the board down. So if you are in a wave and causing drag and slow, that wave is going to pass you up. The front of the board is going to be up in the air and you look around and say what happened, what did I do wrong. Okay. That is one thing that is major. Also, if you are too far forward on the board, you will see that nose. Remember we talked about the front of the nose, that nose will dive. What that does it will go straight down and it will point you straight down and you will fall. We will be right back. .
