Our Advanced Surf course

Sven  Finally turned my top turn into a cutback!

Even good surfers rarely claim that they dominate all the techniques in surfing. Kelly Slater himself, the 11 times world champion, thanked his biggest rival Andy Irons (R.I.P.) after his 6th world title in an interview, and said: “Only because of the hard competition with Andy I got to be as good as I am now.”

We’re offering advanced surf courses for surfers who already rode green waves. Of course you don’t have to be able to ride your board like Kelly. It’s enough if you can surf a green wave.

For those of you, who want to make their surf look more radical, Rick explains you how to do a frontside cutback – an important maneuver in surfing.
“Hello I’m Alex. I’m the head coach of the OTRO MODO Surf School, ISA Level 2 surf coach and SLSA beach lifeguard. I’ll explain you how to do the frontside cutback."

Every day we go by our 4WD's to the surf spot/beach with the best waves for your surf level.

How to do a frontside cutback

To do a good cutback it’s essential to prepare the maneuver accordingly. Therefor your bottom turn has to be done correct. After the “take off” you’re going down to the bottom of the wave. This is where you start your bottom turn. That’s the only way to come to the spot in the wave where your cutback has to be.

Here we go! Look to the point of the wave where you want to do your cutback. If you arrived there turn your head and body to the breaking part of the wave, your board will follow by itself.
You decide how radical your cutback looks. The stronger you’re facing the broken part of the wave the more radical the maneuver appears.

There are many different ways to do a cutback.
Decide if you terminate the cutback here and continue riding the wave, or if you overdraw until your tail swings off and you’ll kick out some spray, or if you surf against the whitewash and let yourself vault back into the wave.

New: Radio helmet coaching! The radio helmet coaching will be like a live video coaching, in which your surf instructor can coach you while you are actually up and riding. A great way to improve your surfing skills and learn how to surf green waves in a short time!

My tips:
"Your head and shoulders steer your board. The more you turn, the more radical you turn appears.
Get enough speed out of “take off” and your bottom turn, don’t do unnecessary moves. Then your cutback – no matter how radical – will almost be as good as Kelly's! Hang Loose!"
