Ways to stop surfing sideways ?

Hi all,

I have recently suffered the unpleasant sensation of bing surfed sideways toward somewhere I don't want to - a rocky landing. Luckily the wave subsided enough and passed underneath me. I wondered if there was another way of stopping this, other than rolling or capsizing and wet exiting?

thanks, Steve
