So after surfing for almost a year, Dad and Gray came and watched us the other day and gave me some things to work on. some of these I used to do and have stopped doing for whatever reason. When trying to catch a wave I need to: * Keep my legs together * Don't arch back too early - chin down * Therefore move back slightly * Paddle deep not fast and shallow - not like a girl ;P * Stand straight up rather than crouching. I also need to: * Grow some balls and go for bigger waves * Look where I wanna go!! * Keep working on my strength and paddling. I want to start doing some swimming with Jim. This will help both of us get fitter and stronger and less reliant on our boards.
