In my opinion just keep riding it and moving your feet in different spots. You have to find that sweet spot and only experience will do that. clearly move back for harder turns and move forward for speed but to find that spot only you will be able to find it. Once I moved my foot back a inch or two and it all clicked on my short board. Nobody online was going to be able to tell me that. keep riding the board and experimenting and it will come

Brah long boarding is all about the glide... And the nose ride .. And style ... Thus said- no pumping...
Sure you can climb up and down the wave face to gain speed... But pumping??? Nah - not needed... I wouldn't worry about it
