I recently switched from a Motive 134 to a Premier 141 and love it. The only thing is when I do wake jumps, spins, or grabs, the board is alot more vertical in the air than it used to be. I'm getting alot more air than I used to, and I'm landing everything even better than before, but it just makes my grabs/spins not look as good. Any advice on why this is happening, and what I could do to fix it?

Put more weight on your front foot if it's rising up in your jumps

you went from a continuous rocker to a subtle 3-stager. that'll pop you up a bit more. continuous boards will cut thru the top of the wake more, 3-stages will pop up more. so it makes sense that you're getting some nose rise. it'll just take some time for you to adjust to it that's all. <BR> <BR>like sean said, test adding a bit more weight to the front as you're leaving the wake - perhaps a more even distribution is a better way to describe it. you'll get used to the new board soon enough im sure.
