I'm thinking of getting a carver skateboard, lots of ppl on here have em and they swear by them, I just don't know how I'll like one compared to a regular skateboard which is what i'm more familiar with but I realize they are for two totally different things.
I'll have to pick up a pair of those TC Redlines one of these days to have around for when it gets juicy out there

Watching videos can help, but you have to understand what you're watching. Pay close attention to the relationship between the head and shoulders when others are doing their power moves. When I was in Hawaii and having trouble getting deep dig on my bottom turns, a friend of mine came up to me, and put his finger to my chin and turned it to the left, then said "use your head." It made all the difference, where your head goes the body will follow. Do this move to yourself, take your finger and twist your chin, you should feel it in your shoulders, that's the most basic start of turning with more power in your torque.

DPSUP???? what the F? I thought you were at least good enough to throw a fitzpedo.... Im worried about where you are in surfing now dude...
after skimming through the comments.... I saw something that I think is a good observation... don't spend too much time out on the shoulder. I remember once I learned how to keep myself in the "power pocket" of the wave (btw, I heard that expression from Dane Reynolds... not my own creation.) I was able to get more turns in each wave. also, I found that I got even more power out of mush waves by holding the turn back into the foam ball and turning once I hit that spot.
but seriously.... work on the fitzpedo... when the time is right you'll know when to use it.

Seriously though, I appreciate the tips, I'm not as good as some of youse guys on here, but i'm working on it. As any good artist, you never stop trying to perfect your craft, although perfection is unattainable, the pursuit of it is where people grow and evolve into something better than before.
