The paddling for a green wave is not that easy, because there are certain things to pay attention to. For example: The position in the water, the selection of the right wave, and of course the timing.
When you choose a suitable wave, it’s important to have the correct position on your board, because while paddling for the green wave you have to bring more weight to the front of your surfboard. Just imagine you’re paddling down a hill.
Therefore: Push your chest on the board and stretch your arms and shoulders as far as possible to the front.
The significant second is the moment where the tail of your board gets lifted up a bit by the approaching wave. Don’t stop paddling; to the contrary, you have to do at least four more powerful strokes.
If you chose the right wave and have paddled hard enough, you need to glide down the wave on your board. Take off and ride your first green wave.
At least by now, you’re totally addicted to surf.
