Hi Kino,

I noticed that you are riding a 2013 NS Proto that looks a little small for you. If you could borrow a women's' board in your size (larger), you'll get more grip on edge (stopping and turning) and maybe softer flex (easier turn initiation). If you can't borrow a women's board, try to borrow a jib stick in your size with a narrow waist like the Proto.

Hope this helps - Nito

Wouldn't a women's board have a smaller waist? The reason I'm riding on a mens board is because the waist on the women's board is too narrow for me. I get too much toe overhang.

What size Proto is that and what is your weight (shouldn't really ask a lady - but it's for a reason )?

Hi Kino,

It is ok to have some overhang. If you post a picture of your boots strapped onto your board, it can be reviewed by members. Post a few pictures, one with the Proto and other pictures with your boot strapped into other boards that you like to get an opinion.

Hope this helps - Nito

Will get some photos later on Nito, the board is getting waxed and tuned atm from all the scratches and dint received from rocks lol

Skip11, normally in australia or new zealand

I found another video that is probably better to see how i turn with more acceleration. Perhaps anyone would be able to see any other bad habits that I've been doing?

To reiterate what others have said already: There is really not much wrong with your riding. There are some areas for improvement - slightly more athletic stance (i.e., bend more at ankles, keep, and hips), slightly more weight forward, slightly less open upper body (that seems to be the case only occasionally) - that will all help reduce/eliminate some of the slight ruddering, but nothing dramatic at all.

Also, I do not think the board is too short for you, but it may well be too wide. Close-up pictures would help, but from the video it kind of looks like there is not enough overhang... If that is the case, it will make it difficult for you to put sufficient pressure on the edge - which does seem to be an issue in both videos.

To add: Your friend's board looks way to wide for him - the toes of his boots do not even appear to reach the edge of the board, let alone have any overhang at all.

Compare your (and his) set-up with the other rider around 3.30-4.15 in the first video.
