If you are landing on your heals you are opening up too early. Wait until you think your head is about to dig into the water, then stretch your legs and reach for the water. Try to grab the board and hold it as long as you can. What I do is wrap my back arm around my back leg and pull it close to me, that keeps me balled up. Another point, wait until you get the pop.
