Hi!
I already posted this on the free forum but had no real replies so i hope the Team can help.

I'm trying to learn the shove-it for a while now, but I don't seem to be getting anywhere. I'm learning it in small chop (i don't have any waves near me) and what I do is that i try to find a steep piece of chop and carve into it and then I kinda throw myself on the sail and push down with my hands. What happens next is that I feel the power from the other side of the sail (don't know if I take off at that time or not) and then my mast hits the water and i fly in over it.

What do I do wrong, what should I even do in a Shove-it? And when I learn it in chop, how do you guys do it in flat water?

All the best
