Description

Once you have learnt the position on the board and accomplished your first surfing experience, you need to learn the take off.Starting in the surfing position, you have to raise your buttocks by pushing off with your arms and toes. Supporting yourself with your hands, push off with your back foot and pull your front foot in between your arms. Your back foot should be under your bottom, pointing at a right angle to the centre line. Push off with your legs and stand up while keeping your ankles and knees bent. Point your head and look towards where you want to go. Do not hold on to the rails, as this will slow the board down considerably. Lay your hands down on the board. Lift yourself up, as smoothly as you can to avoid any sudden movements that could cause you to lose your balance. More products and advices: http://www.tribord.com
