First of all it’s important to find the correct position on the surfboard, not too far to the front, not too far to the back, in order that the board can start to glide.
When a suitable wave is coming. Don’t forget: paddle two times more, because your board needs the drive to become fast enough.
When it’s happening: Push up with both hands, which you locate at the height of your shoulders and use the drive to get your feet to the board in one line. Your stance should be hip width, and your front foot should be on the spot where your chest was located before. Twist your head and upper body in the direction you are travelling.
Don’t forget your whoop of joy: Yipieeeeeee!!!
