I've never seen a picture of a surfer standing straight with no bend in his knees, so I imagine that lowering your center of gravity is probably a good thing. (not that I know; the waves only get a few inches tall here, too. )
I guess you haven't seen the old Hawaian surfers, standing straight - arms crossed - on a tall board

Well it is like old shihan, who often lower their center invisibly for normal human beings. You see just a hand moving and uke flying. Then they pretend on all the technique coming from hara
