Default Shove its

Hi!

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?

Any help is more than welcome as I'd really like to learn them in the next 2 months...

Cheers

I also tried the shove-its for a little while now, but I don't seem to get the sail far enough down... what can I do to get the sail down?
