Learn How to Surf : Watch a Surfing Demonstration by an Expert


Here we are back at beautiful county line
in Malibu. We’re going to go out there and catch a couple long board waves before the
high tide comes up. As you can see, we have 2-3 foot condition, slight crowd on the beach;
nothing to worry about. Yeah, water is a little chilly this morning because of the poor cloud
cover we’re having and lack of sunshine. It’s just another typical L.A. day, so enjoy the
surfing. Thanks for tuning in to expertvillage.com. As you can see I got my leash around my leg
around my knee. I’m not starting to walk out towards the beach. The surf is kind of taking
a turn for the worst, the tide is high. Surf has kind of taken a turn for the worst. The
tide is high. Surf is now maybe 1-3 feet semi inconsistent. That means the surf is dying.
I’m going to try catch a couple of waves. Here I am, I’m on my knees paddling and there’s
a wave on the horizon so I will drop off my knees and get on my stomach and paddle. Then
I would turtle dive by holding all sides of the boards turning over and letting the wave
paddle over me. I do that and I turn over and I flip back up onto my stomach and paddle
back out to the outside. I caught a wave off the horizon. I see which direction it’s going
to head and then I decide then I’m going to go for a lap. As I’m paddling, I’m watching,
watching, paddling harder. I can feel the momentum of the wave pushing me, so as that
happens; I know to stand on my feet. As you can see, I’m on my feet and riding. You can
see the wave is very tiny. It didn’t take me anywhere, so there’s nothing I can do but
fall off and catch the next wave.
