Old School, Forehand Scoop

The hand scoop was a technique Greenough used to employ, especially riding weak waves with a fresh (meaning stiff and unbroken in) Hodgman raft. He would square up to a small section, reach forward with his inside arm, and pull himself forward through the section.

This sequence is from Innermost Limits. It's worth watching in live motion. You can really see the concept working.
