Tips covered in this video:
1) Avoid "gripping" the board with your toes. Relax your toes by wiggling them and remind yourself to relax the muscles in your feet to avoid fatigue and cramping in your feet. This is very common for beginners struggling with balancing on the board
2) Keep blood flowing in your feet. Shift your weight front to back and side to side to get the blood flowing and and keep your feet from going numb.
3) Un-weigh both feet to move around board: move around with little jumps to avoid rocking the board when moving around
4) Surf Stance to trim board: Get into the surf stance with both feet on the center line of the board to easily move backwards and forwards on the board without rocking side to side.
