   meanwhile, all semantics and hairsplitting on my part aside, here's a video of Bear/Gong demonstrating what I'd call noseriding.  it's been hugely helpful to me, looking at it, because he gets up front in a bunch of different ways.  the one step hop.  the clean two step.  the last-second shuffle.  the single step from the second step position on take off.  plus, you can see him knife the rail into the wave before he walks time after time.  lots of great stuff going on.  if only it were easier to take what you see and put it into practice.  man, that's hard!

Great noseriding vid Linter.
He really gets the board covered with water -
also gets one or sometimes almost both feet On the inside rail -
he stalls the board a bit sometimes but he seems to be riding fairly fast.
Got to watch that many many more times.

--
As with others I agree it is the feeling of "noseriding" that
is so cool.   I like parallel stance to get the coolest feeling
- like floating on a magic carpet - I don't get that as much
if I have one foot in front of the other, unless they are still
close togther.  Hanging five is pretty cool to but hanging ten
is also in parallel stance - maybe someday.

Three (3) weeks ago I was swapping emails with Marlon Lewis about the availability of a 10'1" flat nose Jimmy Lewis model B&B.  He thought he had one located - in of all places the mid-west.  So I pulled the trigger working with JimK only to find out the board he (Marlon) thought was a flat nose was actually a concave nose.  And that I would now have to wait until Feb 2017 before Marlon and Dad Jimmy would have anyone....BUMMER! 

Well, over the weekend Marlon emailed me indicating he had located a yellow B&B flat nose there in Maui and it was mine if I wanted it.  I quickly engaged JimK for the Zoner discount and bam - tracking number and enroute with delivery tomorrow.  SWEET NIBLETS! 

Thanks to Linter for allowing me to try his B&B and Creek for sharing his Sunova Style - both there knowledge, insight, and willingness to share have allowed me to make an informed decision on what (I think) will work best for me.

And so my nose riding adventure begins.

Whew!!!  Rome wasn't built in a day.....

I've been out for a couple of sessions over the last several days on my new B&B.  At 10'1" and 31" wide I've quickly adapted to its stability, or my lack thereof.  Paddling about and getting out thru the slop is pretty easy (when I time things nicely).  As for catching rides.....I ain't gonna lie....its been challenging, but I'm definitely up for it and super stoked!  I've pearled it as many times as I've had waves pass underneath - (still looking for that magic foot placement for padding into waves).  By my second session I started to cross step several steps forward to get my lead (right) foot forward (I'm a goofy) of the line on several rides which was still a foot plus shy of being able to get 5 over. Really liked that feeling as there was at least 6 plus feet of board behind my rear (left) foot.  Trying to capture some vid with a Gopro Hero attached to my paddle for learning purposes....been hit or miss thus far.

Loving it....boy am I hooked!

I was thinking about this thread on Monday. Had a nice long trip with both feet on the Foote logo...no toes over but it was definitely over the line.

The Foote 10'4" is a pretty good noserider. I can get 5 over sometimes if I stall the board aggressively and cross-step smoothly. I can almost always get comfortable with my feet on the logo. For me, the stall is everything in getting to the front. No stall, no ride. The nose just buries. I also need to cross-step very smoothly. If I don't, I tip the rail out of the wave face and it's over. I brace the paddle into the wave face, but only lightly. Push too hard and the rail lifts. Gots to keep that rail buried and the tail well covered.

I watched a very cool surfer girl at Cardiff styling on her longboard. she didn't cross-step--she took tiny, very fast shuffles. I mean SUPER fast. She had a whole bandolier of super-cool moves, including catching a big breaking wave in the whitewater by ducking down and grabbing the rail. Made it look like part of the big plan. She didn't stall her board to noseride, just stuffed the rail, but she probably weighed as much as my leg. I talked to her a while on the beach. I was mesmerized by her eyes--beautiful. Hmmm, where was I...  ...Oh, yeah, so I think if you're light enough you can get away with not stalling, but for a chunkster like me, I think it's everything.

Yup......it's funny though. I don't even think about cross stepping. I think what I do is a combination of a shuffle and a long cross step...nothing elegant about it...at least I don't think so..I kind of just find myself there all of a sudden. I do cross step back but it's not the smooth transition...usually a few quick steps to the tail. Feels good though.

I always get lost in the eyes too....must be genetic.

I had a couple sessions last spring on my buddy's 9'2 Sunova Speeed and was playing around with trying to cross step--didn't have much success, but it was fun tryin'!
