      Give it time. Once you figure this board out, you will love it. It is definitely going to be looser than you surf style board. I went from a P5 Matrix (which is shaped to give a little push from the back) to the MVP which provides almost no help from the backside. This is why this board is for the advanced level rider (which I am not). Don’t give up on it and don’t be ashamed to keep the rope in your hand until you get the feel of the board and managing to control it.

      Thanks for the advice. Today I had a hard time keeping it straight. The nose just wanted to kick out towards my heel side. I ended up moving my feet more toe side which helped and tried moving my front foot up but that just made me dunk it. 
       

      My original thought for the board was to learn shuvs but I’m wondering if I’ll ever be able to get my stance back if I get the shuv down. Haha. 
       

      More practice tomorrow. Hopefully it becomes as comfortable as my other board. I’ve only heard the best things and everyone says exactly what you said. Once you learn how to ride it, you will love it. 

    • Did it burn up or did the foam come apart around the outside cone? The foam can be replaced pretty cheap. 

      Check our Kicker marine free air as a replacement. Just be sure to match the same impedance (ohm value) as your current speaker. I can’t believe JL wants $1k for a sub. That’s nuts.

      Uggh I’m trying so hard to learn that style. I ended up ordering the 2” fin so I will try that out. I love my surf style board but hate that I bought this one and can’t ride it! Lol.

    • 2018 LSV. What causes the bilge pumps to air lock? Both of my pumps run but usually don't pump water unless I reverse fill the drain port by squirting water in it from the outside first? Had heavy rain the other night and my swim platform was at full ballast position from the water in the hull. Do the pumps time out after an amount of time? Don't think they were running when I boarded boat. Batteries were in on position. I know the auto switch usually turns them on but often no expel. Often get Auto bilge on warning while under way with none pumping out of port? Could have sank her from this.
