The surf attracts us only see others doing this sport, but at first it can be very complex and disappointing, so if you’re learning to surf, we help you achieve better results with some tips for beginners in this great adventure and activity .
The basic thing is to have all the desire to learn the sport, because by requiring great effort and dedication in the beginning, if we do not really want to do, nothing will move us to do what is necessary to get a table standing in spite we can feel fatigue after some attempts. And, here are some tips to learn how to surf:
Choose the appropriate table
At first, the ideal is to have a large table and float, preferably with rounded tip, to achieve more stability when we first started on this experience and catch waves without suffering repeated blows. Table longboard is great for beginners.
Also, try not to start with borrowed tables, because if we get the object of an experienced friend, the learning difficulty is multiplied and we find no motivation to continue learning to surf.
At first, you should get into the water on calm days when the waves are not as strong and less water movement allows us to maneuver the table more easily. It is also important to avoid peak times on the beach, because it is at this time when more people are around and we cannot move widely calm and paddling in the water, which is essential for learning.
The first thing a beginner should do is tie the rope (leash) to the ankle before entering the water, then we put out, past the area where the waves break and practice sitting and lying on the table, so to learn to use the same and capture their movements.
Subsequent to achieve sit on the table and stay in this position for some time, we place ourselves in the sea at a distance from the shore and paddle towards this until a wave or foam it reaches you. At this point you should continue rowing until you feel the wave that drives you is precisely the time when you try to merge with one motion.
To stand on the table, you help support them with their hands on it but without holding the edges, and try to fall (as after a jump) on the table with both feet, one will go ahead of the other. Never recommended incorporated in two movements, ie not useful stand or kneel and then support one foot and then the other.
At first, standing for the first time, you should be somewhat bent, pull your shoulders slightly forward and bend your knees slightly, so as to get more balance to stay upright on the table.
These simple tips can help learners achieve better learning when we try surfing and enjoy the adrenaline rush experienced when navigating the experienced surfer standing on the waves.
