Let’s get started with your first surfing lesson!!
There are different methods of catching a wave, and the most accepted and easy way to do that is to lie on the surfboard in the sand and practicing for the same.
Here we will discuss about the correct method of catching the wave….
Waves to Start Surfing On
If you are new to surfing, then it is better to surf smaller and closer waves. You need to go for the smaller and breaking waves that will be easy for you to deal with in the practicing phase. Always keep in mind that surfing should always be enjoying instead of being risky.
Get certain about that fact that the position of surfboard in your hand should not be in the direction where a wave might hit it back on your face. This step is essential to be kept in mind as you might get hurt by the wrong surfboard position.
It is advised to hold the board at the length of your arm with a hand on each rail. The next step is to jump over the approaching water as you move out. Keep a check on the surroundings to assure that you are not moving towards some other surfer’s trail. Also keep a check on the thing that you are not surfing behind some other person, and if this happens, the other person might lose control on the surfboard, which could result out to be extremely dangerous.
While surfing, you need to be really careful about following the safety measures every time!!
Now, after knowing all these essential points about surfing, you must have got comfortable with the depth where the waves get trolled on the beach.
Next what you have to do is to….
- Keep the surfboard by your side
- Eyes facing towards the beach
- Watch the waves moving towards your direction
- Pick a wave that you think is sized enough to move you inside.
If it’s your first time for the surfboard water sport and you are carrying a beginner’s board, then you are advised to go for a smaller wave so that it will get easy for you do it right at your first. Additionally, you are not at all required to paddle. But, if your surfboard is small and light weighted then you need to push harder to move in with that.
