    Question Lean w/ it?

    I just took my new 08 out on the waves for the first time. Good waves...5ft or so. Caught some great air but everytime I came down she noseplanted w/ a major lean to the left. Normal??

    they do bust thru small waves easly , So i found I had to learn when to hit the wave for the best tale end landing style, Yes they lean slightly but not that bad to really notice

    My 15F does it a little bit since i have the 2nd waterbox removed. the worst is when you're hitting waves w/ a cross wind then it leans like a biotch.

    same here

    after 2nd box removal leaned left, now i lean on my right leg when standing, much harder with 2 people. but more throttle makes it go away. hey lets all get more throttle!! i know i always want more

    ive noticed a very positive difference w/ wave jumping when using the 2 degree wedge. smooth landings. tail first.

    Two reasons your nose planting, which I must say is not good for the big fatties we ride.

    first , time the waves so you hit when it is clearly most vertical, just prior to breaking, second, throttle off the top, that pushes the bow skyward...

    also, hit the wave square, not at an angle, that will fix your leaning problem.

    trick is don't chase um, wait for um

    and 2 degree does help when you throttle off the top
