I have a 10'6" Red Paddle Co and was wondering if this board would be suitable to get starting with nose riding? I'm obviously not going to be able to get toes over but would it be possible to get up towards the nose?
I have other boards too but have seen a brand new hardboard nose rider style for sale that's 10 X 29 (145l) at 500 but is a 2015 model with an older style handle and glass construction but could be an interesting?
Any things to consider would be useful!

Or you can take an off the shelf, $950 pop-out, and noseride it like this.....


Which makes me believe, "It's the indian, not the arrow".   ;D

Joe is pretty impressive no matter what he's riding, or which end of the board he has going forward....

Noseriding rules!  Not sup,  but I shot this two weeks ago.   I have fun with it even though I'm a foot and a 1/2 back from the nose.

I learned a great trick to help smooth out my cross step--it's worth practicing. If you start out with your feet in a normal surf stance and step your back foot across forward, you'll almost always tip towards your toes. The step is too long to maintain balance and your back foot winds up in a position where you can't keep your weight even--you automatically go to the edge of your foot and you can't control heel or toe pressure. Instead, I put my weight on the back foot to stall and get my weight even heel to toe, then bring my front foot back close to the back foot, setting it down on the spine of the board. Weight the heel of my front foot that I just pulled back, and step across with a short step. Even your weight out and step across with a long step that gets you as least to the logo. the nose is a short step away.

I walk around the house this way until Diane starts throwing stuff at me. Once you have it down, it's much easier than a shuffle. And it's kind of autopilot for noseriding--stall, stabilize, move forward, keep the rail buried. Presto. Pop the rail and you're done. Look at those Joe pics. His waveside rail is totally buried.
