#surf Iesson of the day
Thank you, but this video doesn’t help us up in the NW… The waves here
are harsh, cold and whitewashy. Could you maybe post a video on helping
find the balance on a longboard in choppy water? Thanks
@SurfingwithBen Not me, I came out of my mothers vagina ready to go
professional. Being a beginner is for kooks and toys.
Sorry the water under the center is *not* moving as fast as the water at
@ThisMightBeFun Kinda sounds like you are too big for your board or it has
buoyancy problems, are there cracks in the glass?
@Bouchon211 dude i think you might be right… it had been cracked before
but badly sealed. I eventually got to use my friends board and it was
pearly haha. Doesnt matter much anymore.. a longboarded sliced the board
clean through with that fat back fin
man now im sad its night time I wana go to the beach lmao XD
Totally disagree with the stroke length, short powerful rhythmic, fluid
stokes are better for maximizing potential and conserving energy. Much like
a canoe paddle stroke, the first 30% of the stroke is 90% of the energy. I
pull to just underneath my pecs then am releasing for my hands to come out
of the water. Think in swimming terms, ‘his stroke started to get long’ ..
(he was swimming inefficiently -usually because of fatigue and pulling all
the way through).
Great vid. Who wouldn’t want to know how to move more efficiently? Keep up
the good work
@smexehpoop It’s almost the same in choppy water. You still don’t want to
be too far back or forward. If you have to, be a little further back than
usual if needed just to help cut through the white wash. But not far back
enough that you push water. Keep your body evenly distributed and make sure
you use the length of the board to glide and get speed while paddling out
and into a wave.
SOunds like you may be surfing a board that is a bit too low volume for
you. You may have more luck with some more foam under your chest. But as a
general rule your board can be pretty far underwater and you can still
catch waves, however you do need to have tip of the nose just out of the
water once you are up to full paddle speed.
But over-all, te video is good advice!
My problem is I can only catch RIGHT waves
I have been away from “theonlinesurfschool” project for a while working on
other projects so sorry for everything lagging and the lack of new content.
I now have the time to make more videos…please let me know what you think
would be most useful and I will do my best to make a video to help.
@JMort95 Why is he a kook? Everyone started out as a beginner right?
Okay.. what if you have a shortboard and the entire board is almost sunk..
and when youre in the center the nose is under? Do you just paddle with the
nose under? and with the nose out of the water i feel like im putting on
the brakes and cant catch any waves… help needed please reply (:
Big no no…look where you want to go and you will get there, look at your
board and chances are it will not go that well for you!!
cheers mate it helps for begginner like me! i just surf this afternoon my
first surf ever. i always fell off to my board dammit! i cant even Catch
the bloody waves! but i wont give up love surfing i always watch movies &
love this sports! cuz no 1 teach me just watch sum lessons now here in
youtube.. tnx a lot!!!
@wetrib You need to watch where you are paddling. There could be surfers
paddling out, rocks, reef, people standing in the way. If you have question
let me know. I’m a surf coach.
If you pull under the center of the board you can get a little more power
from your stroke. From a physics stand point the water directly at the
center of your body is moving as fast as the water at the edge of your
shoulder. The water that isn’t moving has more inertia in the opposite
direction allowing you push harder and generate more speed.
Incline your head to help push your weight over the wave for the entry. But
never look down. Your body follows your head. Therefor, looking down it is
more natural to drop straight in to the bottom – to usually have the wave
close out behind you. Look down the line in the direction that you wish to
go. Your body will naturally lean a tad more that way and set you up better
to pump down the line from the get-go (without having mastered a good
bottom turn yet).
i bet "Kevin" wasnt found anywhere near the beach when Irene passed, lol, i
rofl i was surfing during this storm i herd about this on the news
man.dat was totally wild!!!! merciless wind!!
@hayashiburger Why would you say something like that? This guy could have
@jbarrick54 shut up little boy
three mistakes in a row: 1. kitesurfing in a storm 2. not letting the bar
