what happened at 1:18???

You're looking very competent on the water, nice!  That GL180 craves speed - I can tell from the angle of your board that you're in low speed lift mode.  If you can put down the pedal (front foot) and get going across the wave, it'll really get up and go.  hard to tell from the video if there was enough power in the wave to get it up to speed, perhaps not.

Coming into the shallows I don't want to ground out. so I might kick out to the front or to the side (over the back of the wave) when I think I'm too shallow.
If I ground out I usually go over the front..don't like having a hydrofoil between me and the wave behind.
Definitely weak waves..
