From here, adjust the trim of your engine, and your trim tabs if you have them, to keep the bow up so that it doesn't stuff. You must constantly adjust your speed to attempt to ride on the back of the wave in front of you. The last thing you want to do is get stuck surfing down a wave, which can cause you to lose steerage and your stern to swing out, heightening the possibility of getting rolled. Or you could stuff the bow into the trough or the wave in front of you and take on water. If the following seas are breaking, you also want to avoid allowing a wave to break on your stern, flooding your decks. Try to use your throttles to ride on the lower portion of the wave, about a third of the way down from the crest. This way, you have time to react if the wave breaks, as well as some room to work the throttles.
