South - I found these short little coaching clips super helpful... to remind you of the basics, e.g. low center of gravity, look down the line, be on centerline etc...

Good instructional videos. I've never seen that website before.

This one in particular has a useful tip.

SouthCounty--Keep at it! Nothing beats the feeling of 'wave sliding'.
The Wide Aquatic's a nice looking board. Any idea how much it weighs? (bathroom scale?)
I'm looking for a lighter weight wide surfing board that I can carry some distance down the cliffs to the breaks.
