Re:frustrated surfer! wrong board or wrong technique? - 2012/12/04 22:53 From reading this it sounds like you have no problems with the popping up.. It's likely just to do with the positioning when you're standing on your board.. too far back and you'll stall the board, too far forward and you will either nosedive the board and do a nice cartwheel off the front or you'll have picked up too much speed for the wave and by the time the wave has caught up with you again you have run out of speed so the wave will just go passed you.

generally when you pop up you want your back foot just infront of the fin plugs and your lead foot around the middle of the board. keeping your weight towards the front.

It can also be to do with wave choice. If you have been used to catching any wave with the larger board it may be that you require just a bit more power in the wave although a 7'6 should still be able to pick up most waves

Hope this helps!
