the take off
It’s the start ! No matter if on a long or short board, on a
small or big wave, this is a crucial step requiring a whole lot of attention. The move is so fast that it then becomes automatic; this is why it is very important to learn it properly without
making big mistakes.
Pass the braking waves
One of the tough steps learning surf is to manage to pass behind the waves. Indeed, to be able to take on
the waves before they break, it is necessary to go offshore by getting around the breaking zone whenever possible or by using the « duck » or the « turtle »techniques to pass the
wave from underneath.
The offshore positioning
Knowing to position properly offshore and wait for the waves at the right spot, the surfers call it the « seamanship » ". Analysis of waves
and of the spot is essential for a good positioning to take on the waves.
Take on the waves
Analyzing, paddling, correcting the position to have the best placement. Getting in the wave is one of the
most important steps; indeed it will have a big impact on your efficiency to surf the wave at the best.
"RIGHT TIME RIGHT PLACE"
Take a path
We can compare surf to a fighting sport, you need to adapt constantly to
the behavior of the wave. It is important to know what to do and at which moment.
The bottom-turn, the roller, the snap, the cutback, the floater, the
turn, all these maneuvers are essential in surf training because they are functional. They allow to use the potential of the wave at its maximum and to surf farther distance on the wave using
the vertical paths.
