Right here on the surfboard is just right. In front of the kick pad I put on the board specifically for my back foot. Proper stance, my back foot should be in front of the thing meant for my back foot. Not on it.

Not to be mean - but "feet hanging over the edge"...you haven't taught a lot of Asian tourists on big foam boards have you now?
Riftborn

Says "not to be mean" inbefore being racist. Not all asians are tiny, not all black and white people are tall. And almost all big foam boards/longboards tend to have their feet ON the board. In the video a medium sized board, probobly 7'2 is used, and very few people except kids can have their feet on the board then

What’s the point in having the pad on the back?
Riftborn
Riftborn - 1 year ago
+Sam Bott yes, thats exactly what it is for. The further back on the board your weigth is, the steeper the wave needs to be for you to be able to surf it
Sam Bott
Sam Bott - 2 years ago
+How to Ripthanks for the reply! but is it mainly for bigger waves because on smaller waves standing on it has pulled me off the back of the wave?

Extra traction for the back foot which controls most of the manoeuvring

Tail pad is too far forward. Paddling should be over a barrow in an S shape, with reach not great, sweeping under the board then flicking outward, paddling deep, head still, body rocking slightly to extend the stroke nothing as exaggerated as swimming. Watch Kelly Slater, he doesn't paddle like you're suggesting. Weight should be on the front leg. If you have your weight on the back leg where you've positioned, it will bend the nose up causing a break. Take off must be at an angle on small waves otherwise you'll get to the bottom & the wave will break down the line without you

I surfed all the time as a teenager but life and it's obligations take a lot of us away from our passions and getting back into it has been difficult. You showed me a couple of things I have been doing wrong like not lifting my chest up when taking off. Have been taking off push up style and that does not work at all!!!:))) Thanks.

Why is it you are using your feet in the pop up? When in the water you wont be able to use them as they will be hanging off the end.

Are you pushing off the sand when you jump up? Any advice for how to jump up off your knees?
Riftborn
Riftborn - 1 year ago
Jumping up is difficult and advanced. Id reccomend doing what he does first by pushing his chest up. Then moving your back foot up above your front knee (which should still be lying straigth) and then moving your front foot up, and standing up

It’s been proven that holding your fingers slightly apart (not cupped) is more efficient and advising new surfers to paddle with long strokes is absolutely against what they should be doing. This causes them to reach and with that reach, they fail to arch their backs and use their lats - this burns out the shoulder muscles which are a lot smaller, weaker and are easily injured.
Thelostprojects
Thelostprojects - 2 years ago
The arch in your back is effected by the erector spinae lower back muscles
The lat is activated from the hyper extension of the shoulder joint.
However your point about shoulder fatigue may be true.
Ryan The Rock

I have been shortboarding for a few years...im 6'4 and when i popup my back foot,im natural,lands in front of the tailpad instead of on the pad...this makes turns difficult...i can move my foot back onto the pad after pop up but its difficult...would be nice to pupup with my foot on the tailpad...any ideas?
Riftborn
Riftborn - 1 year ago
If you have been shortboarding for years i dont understand how you manage to surf with your back foot in front of your tailpad when you are taller than a lot of shortboards. You have surfed for so long that you just need to experiment if you have years if experience. Find out what works

Hi there, my board is 8'1, where should I hang my feet and roughly what tips should I consider? Thanks!
Ruby Henaway
Ruby Henaway - 2 years ago
thank you very much! it certainly helps
xyzct
xyzct - 2 years ago
Ruby, his rule of thumb about feet hanging off the end is kind of useless. Lay on your board in the water and adjust your forward/aft position so that the tip of your board is just an inch or two above the water surface. Very slight differences in position can really affect this. If you are too far forward, the nose will dive under as you paddle. If you are too far back, you'll be plowing through the water, and will never catch a wave. Most beginners lay too far back, so the tip is too high out of the water. Hope that helps.
Riftborn
Riftborn - 1 year ago
You need to experiment with your position on the board. If you fall down and go into the washing machine you nosedive because you are too far forward. So you need to be further back. Go too far back however and you wont be able to catch the wave at all

Feet hanging off the board works well for shortboards but I could see where somebody new is hanging off the back off a 10'2 wondering why the waves keep passing.

+Ruby Henaway probably have your toes on the very edge of the board, it will also make it easier to stand up on
Ruby Henaway
Ruby Henaway - 2 years ago
do you reckon you could hang your feet off an 8'1 and still catch waves? or should be more positioned in the centre of the board?

cyberanswer
cyberanswer - 2 years ago
It depends on the board. If you're on one of those super long, flat foam things you'll need to be WAY further back or done modern, hybrid fish are like that too. If you're catching white water you'll need to be at the back or a long way back no matter which board you use. You also need to paddle hard to equal the wave speed. This speed will reduce how far back you have to be if you're catching white water as the impact on you won't be as great.
Johnsenptonsen
Johnsenptonsen - 2 years ago
If you're perfectly centered on your board and the wave isn't too steep for you, but you're still nosediving then try arching your back as much as you can. Same thing when the wave isn't pushing you, you lean forward and lower your head. If you try this, but still nosedive, maybe try standing up a little sooner.

So you never started surfing and just knew it all right away? On top of that I look at these vids because maybe there is something I need a refresher on, or some very slight technique I can gain. I have been teaching people and have learned a couple of ways its easier to teach, I did it already but didn't know how to describe it to somebody else. Try not to be so simpleminded.
