Ok...I was watching videos of myself surfing/playboating in bigger holes and I realized that I waste a lot of time/energy in a side surf. I don't know what I am doing wrong. It's like I am either afraid to bring it around or maybe I am not turning my head enough..any thoughts or advice?? Oh..I'm a girl too. I have this thought that I am not engaging my lower body enough. We also thought that maybe my boat is too short for me, not allowing me to use my legs as I should. I never had professional instruction, learned through trial and error.
