Beginner with some Q's
Just started surfing this year when we bought our boat (08 MC X-15). We can get a pretty decent wake out of it, especially for beginners. My question is to do with our board. We have an O'brien Nalu 5'4". I am 6'2" and weigh about 230lbs on a good day haha. The board seems pretty good but I don't know if it is right for me, or if its just my skill level. I have been trying to do airs/ollie but I cant seem to get enough speed, or am not timing it right or something. Also doing 360 spins, I can get around but fall out of the wave, or get back in the wave and don't have enough push from the wave to get me back. Is this my skill, the board, the wave or a combination of one or all.
I hope I explained everything enough to give you guys an idea and maybe give me some tips
As far as other board shapes, I don't know what I should look at for my size/skill so any info on that would be appreciated also
