Learn How to Surf : How to Ride a Surf Board


As we’re walking on the beach, I’m warning
to do the sting ray shuffle. The sting ray shuffle is to shuffle your feet in the sand
to scare off any stingrays that might be waiting for you to step on. If you step on them, they
have a tail that stings you, so Sean keep doing the sting ray shuffle. I have now instructed
to lay on his board and to lay down and to paddle out into open sea. As you can see,
he’s laying on the center of the board, paddling straight out to the open ocean where all the
other surfers are sitting. There’s a wave approaching Sean so I’m telling Sean to turtle
dive. A turtle dive is a turtle dive like a turtle. You’re going to grab the board with
your arms and your legs and you’re going to turn it over and you’re going to hold it above
you as say the wave goes over you. As the wave goes over you, you’re going to turn over
and you’re going to get back on the board. This is the easiest way to turtle dive a long
board. There’s other ways to duck dive. If you have a short board, you just duck dive
with the knee and it pushes you under, but we can’t do that right now. Keep turtle diving.
I have Sean out there sitting on the board and I’m teaching him to sit in the center
with your feet dangling off either side, your hands on the side for balance. Teaching him
how to spin 360s on either direction. Doing this is spinning with your hands, using your
hands to spin 360 so you can face the direction you want to take off on. As you can see Sean,
he’s laying on his board facing the beach ready to catch his first wave. I push him,
I tell him to stand up. As you can see, he’s trying to stand up and he’s falling down.
From a wipe out, as you can see, can be very dangerous so make sure you want to protect
your head when coming back up to the surface from your boards slamming back down on the
water. Other than that, grab your board and do everything from step one to get out into
the ocean again to turtle diving to spinning 360 with your hands and you legs so you can
face the beach. Lay on your board and paddle towards the beach to stand up.

    If anywhere to learn to surf.. go to Doheny or a smaller rocky break….. don't try to learn at a place where the break is more advanced… your just going to bug people who have been surfing longer

  15. plague1230 says:

    k i just moved to FL and wanna surf. What size board would i need if im 5'7 and about 230 lbs????

  16. SeethingGreen says:

    Thanks, undid. Will do.

  17. SeethingGreen says:

    With your weight, and the fact that waves on the east coast are relatively small compared to out west here, I'd say go with a longboard. Maybe 8'6 or so. That's what I ride, and it's REALLY easy to get up.

  18. somewhereinnowhere says:

    i just spontaniously bought a new board yesterday and its not a long board, i dont know like exactly how long it is thought haha. but yeah, i have noo idea how to surf. the most ive done is catch a wave lying on my stomach.

    I'm just wondering is he supposed to fall of like that?

  23. DMSteller87 says:

    I started last summer. Although I wiped out more than actually "surfed" and I probably looked pathetic falling off when a 3 foot wave came along, I still had a blast. Can't wait for next summer. "Turtling" is new to me. My instructor never mentioned that.

  24. GeRmAnBoMbErBoY says:

    You think they could've showed him one time not failing completely…

  25. udown4sumcrazyshit1 says:

    Duck dive is when you push the front down with your knee(used for shorties) turtle is as he said spinning over with the board on top of you
