Getting Stuck In The Lip

By June 1, 2016 No Comments

If you are going up for a top turn and getting stuck in the lip, generally this means you are surfing flat and the lip does not have a surface to push against in order to drive you back down the wave.

This is most likely caused by two things, your eyes are looking down the line as opposed to back at the bottom of the wave and or your hands are dragging behind you instead of up in front propelling your body around.

So good technique as you come off the top would be like passing a footy ball to the bottom half of the wave and your eyes are also looking at the bottom of the wave.
