i keep practicing this feet together shoulders forward stance style and its getting easier,
but not easy to maintain concentration for long, and it does need focus as you are constantly on the edge of balance or wobble, its great for pointing high upwind compared to toeside on your weak side, and it feels smooth as you fly round.
I know the method i am adopting is helping me improve, i can tell my overall board handling has improved due to me pushing myself into awkward positions and balance points,
but no surprise I never managed to get into this position or achieve even one foot switch a few days ago when out on a very high sea,
large crests everywhere and crazy turbulence all conspired against me trying anything not totally dialed in.
its all good fun.
