Re: getting back on the pad

Most times I've surfed with Jimmy Lewis he yells ar me to get back on the pad--which is odd considering that Jimmy spends most of his wave time on the nose. I tend to turn too much from the middle of the board, which slows the turns and doesn't use the fins well. Oddly enough, I get back on the pad when I'm going left. Even odder, I've discovered that foiling changed my foot position for surfing. I'm much further back all the time now, except when I run forward to catch a mushburger. But as soon as I start turning my back foot is right on the stomp pad. I have no theory for why, it's just something I noticed.
