That's a bit like --SupaEZ-- explained how to switch from Heal-side, Too Tow-side
while in a transition turn-around.
Hello Bille.....yes it is a dream move..it can become reality for you
When going "in reverse before pivoting" just put 80% of your weight in front strap /20% back strap
That way you are "freeing" the fins for a little while surfing backwards until you go and pivot the 180
To pivot put weight more on back foot to have the fins "catch"(i would day 60%back /40% front)
SO ---- Right after i press on the back of the board to engage the fin to start the pivot :
** should i have already favored the rail i want to slide on to get it in the 180 ?
** will the outside rail want to invite Me over for a Nice "Face Plant" ? !!!
Also the nose of my 6'6" Nash, is kinda pointed , and it doesn't have a lot of rocker op front,
so would that would give a bit of stability while riding backwards ?
There is a smidgen of concave in the nose also.
