ok guys, i have a dilemma. my friend has decided to take up surfing, he has NEVER tried it before and he is 29 years old. i took him out when it was flat so he could get the feel of paddling, standing up in the whitewash etc... but he CANNOT seem to stay on the board, he cant even sit on it w/o it shooting out from underneath him. i tried giving him tips like, dont lay so far back on the board when paddling, cup your hands, try scooching up on the board and dont let the nose be to far in the air but he cant seem to get it. does anyone have any tips for him? he really wants to get into the sport but i dont seem to have that much patience for teaching.
