    buy a smaller board! yea not sure were are are burying your rail either? Is it when you go frontside then turn back to whitwash after top turn or when u go backside and are trying to cut back into the lip?

    i am not very good with the proper terminology but what it boils down to is that when i try to carve a backside turn either during the bottom turn or otherwise, instead of a graceful gradual turn, the side of the board that is closest to the wave sinks too deep, the board essentially stops, and i get pitched off the front of the board.
