Surfboards with tropical design in blue
For a surfer, the feeling of standing and surfing a wave can only be described as the “ultimate feeling.” Whether you are a beginner or experienced surfer the feeling is achieved by standing on the surfboard and using correct techniques to benefit from the natural power of the ocean.
Before you get into the water, you need to practice your technique.
- To start, lay on the board with your toes touching the tail. Make sure your hands are in the right position – don’t grip the board at its sides, but instead place them flat on the board very close to your chest.
- Lift up your chest using your hands. Remember to not look down – instead look straight up and don’t move your head. Looking down or behind you can make you scared or unbalanced.
- You have to be good at doing quick take offs on the ground before moving to the water. When you’ve paddled into the wave and you feel it take you and the wave angles you down, that’s when you have to quickly pop up to standing, using this technique.
- Don’t lean forward because you may flip your board over. A low center of gravity helps that, so bend your knees.Put out your hands like they do in the movies – it actually works for the balance.Once you have caught the wave, go from paddling position to a kneeling position by bringing your knees forward in one swift movement. Do not lean back while kneeling or you will fall off your board.
