    Not what I said at all. Here's some advice: if you are over 180 lbs. don't take too much surfing advice from a guy who's a buck thirty soaking wet. You'll have to stand on the front of the board pretty good to stay in the wake. You are doing that most of the time. All I suggested was moving your toes (really your whole foot) closer to the wake (toe side edge) of the board. Because the wake is on an angle underneath the board you need to be over wake not air.

    What Drew said. 370 or equiv. weight is a must. I use the 370 and still like to add the 2 fly high bricks at 150 each if its just me and the wife. Mojo needs lots of weight surf side. Also slow it down to 10.3 to 10.5

    Added 370 last week, wake is much better. I may add another on top of seats

    I am 225 all day long... I found that I must move forward on the board to get push.

    I'm 215-220 most of the time. I have never put my back foot against the kick pad or my front foot more than about 16" from the front of the board (without stopping dead in the water).

    I'm 6'2 255. Its all about the board... A good board with proper fin setup and a decent wave and you don't have to have all your weight forward. In fact you should be evenly weighted on the board. I will say when I first started my front quad would always be on fire from having to much weight forward.

    Grab you a couple of the 150 bricks with handles. You can make adjustments on the fly and they don't take up much room.

    In my post Boston Marathon training, I'm up to 160 lbs and my favorite board is the Inland Surfer Blue Lake Graphite.

    My rear foot is always against the hump and my front foot is about 2 feet in front and I'm centered on the board.

    The front foot is constantly moving around to adjust to what is happening under me.

    Semantics. When someone says "wake", I equate that with the what is pushing you.

    Pat, If memory serves, I think I was giving you advice when my wife ran over the tow line LOL!

    Why in the world did we have the rope out that far anyhoo?

    Kaneboats ended up towing me to shore

    Yea, that was my first day getting up on a surf board (nailed it first try as I recall). Still have no idea how the rope got up in there.

    Hey, Smorris7, at 255 what the heck board are you riding anyway????????
