Basically I was over-riding it because I was used to an old, heavy, stiff cambered board.

You might find you prefer camber. If that's the case, just get a cambered board. But give the new profile some time, you might find you like it.

The suggestion of getting a lesson is good; there may be a technique issue a professional can help you fix.

Good luck!
Really good advice...and good to know that experienced boarders have a learning curve too. Believe it or not, I am excited to give it another try...or 4 or 5 :-).
