When you paddle out in the surf to ride waves and enjoy the waves its a good idea you
to know how to cut back and control your surfboard. When you catch the wave
at the peck of the wave its always best! You drop down quickly, you will have to be able to control your board quickly and know how to cut back using your whole body and with correct timing, so you don’t run anyone over and get the best part of the wave. You want to stay in the pocket area of the wave (where there is the most energy) and keep your speed, so you can handle and be ready for whats coming next.
If you just go straight and don’t turn your board, the speed will slow down and you won’t get the most out of the wave and the distance in riding the wave.
If you have questions and don’t understand this, then we can help you or suggest what you can do to tune up your surfing to have the most fun!
