The Take Off: find your balance


I tend to lose balance at the take-off. What can I do to fix this?`


Hi Tom!

Without seeing you surfing it is difficult to tell what it is that you are not doing correctly, however here are a few tips that should help you:

  • when popping up, make sure your hands are lying flat on your board (don’t grab the rails) and in line with your chest (not too far up or down)
  • No matter what your stand-up technique is, make sure you bring your front foot between your hands
  • remember to keep your knees bent, this is of particular importance at the take-off where you are the most likely to lose balance. Try this and let us know how it goes!
