Any tips for making drops? Im about 8 sessions in on prone and can take off pretty well in white water and make my way to open face but having trouble making the drop on unbroken faces. everything happens fast, and goes sideways fast. Any suggestions are appreciated!

If you have a track system move the foil back in the tracks until it's easier. If it's a really steep wave it's going to be hard to make the drop. Get out on the shoulder more where you can quickly get to your feet and run away from the steepness.

This is the tricky part, you need to choose wave that is not steep at all. I recommand you go straight and once you are comfortable with your stance, well balanced (wide and low stance, pressure on front) you can go side ways.

Choosing the right wave is the key.
