    Is your weight completely up and down when pumping or are you also trying to project it forward while pumping? Thanks

    You can feel the forward push on the down stroke. You can consciously add a little to it, if you like.


    I only started to make progress with my pump game when I focused on projecting forward a little. Its not like you are throwing yourself forward, but making sure that you are weighted over your front foot so that the lift doesn’t throw you backwards. That plus moving my back foot forward from my surf stance have been to the two big improvements in my (limited) pump gains.
