Pumping the foil through swell and chop

I have a question regarding the technique required when pumping the foil down into troughs and unweighting the foil over the peaks. I'm about 12 sessions into foiling using a Hoverglide 24" mast and Dwarfcraft 54. I attempted to do this "pumping" for the first time yesterday on the short chop that w...
