cant get surfing down( standing on the frame), tips please!

Ey Guys,

I'm trying to do surfing for al long while now.
I can stand on frontshock and pedal, but when I get up to put my foot on frame or seat I feel that it fals to one side.
I think i'm doing something wrong, but I don't know what.

Really want to do surfing. Then I have more acrobatics , beside the switchback.

Hope you can help me guys.

thnx

i used to put my right foot on top of the rear brake caliper and my shin against the seat , my left foot was on the cross bar ...

old school calipers not the independent style

Bye the way: Is it better to drive fast or more slow?
I have the feeling that im going to fall alot, while practising .
Doest matter though. I really want to control this trick!

Re: cant get surfing down( standing on the frame), tips please!

When I surf I put one foot on the bars and one on the seat. It's easier if you run your seat low to keep the centre of gravity as low as possible. If you tip to one side just countersteer with your foot to stay straight. It may be easier to balance at a higher speed, but I'd recommend starting slow and getting used to steering with your foot. Hope this helps.

Left foot on top of the shock, and then push your shin into the handle bars.
Right foot under the seat, and push your shin into the seat.
Then its just a case of trying to stand up higher than the last time.
It took me about half an hour to learn, then as soon as I could, my friend done it within 3 trys. I think you just have to say 'what the hell' and stand up fully.
Id also say, try going a medium amount of speed, and once you got it, you can do it to a stand still.
