Surf Tips to Improve Your Take-Off

After any surfer learns how to take off and drop into green waves, the next logical skill to learn is how to surf down the line. But, as we all know, learning how to go down the line and surf on the open faces of your waves is not as easy as it sounds.

If you are dropping in, getting stuck behind in the white wash, and are unable to reach the open faces of your waves, this tutorial is for you!

The video below is an oldie but goodie. Former SWA instructor Britney runs through tons of helpful surf  advice that will help you improve your take-off. The best part? The video includes real-life video examples for each surf tip that’s provided.

 

We hope this tutorial helps you rack up your number of epic down-the-line waves! As always, if you have more video tutorial requests, contact us here.

SWA is Now Offering Virtual Surf Coaching

What’s the best way to improve your surfing abilities? Besides clocking more hours in the water (obviously), we believe that playing back your own surf footage alongside an experienced surf coach is seriously the best way to improve. That’s why we offer video coaching as a standard part of almost all of our surf & yoga retreats. As most of you already know, our retreats are currently on hold, which means in-person video coaching is on hold too. For this reason, we’ve decided to offer virtual video coaching!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Surfers can send their surf footage to SWA coach and former professional surfer, Holly Beck, and then schedule a one-on-one virtual surf coaching session which will be held on Zoom. In these sessions, Holly will analyze each surf clip and break down all the little details. The sessions will also include time for answering questions and discussing surfboards, reading waves, surf breaks, etc. Anything goes!

The coaching is not only perfect for Amigas who want to get their old SWA footage reanalyzed,  but also great for other surfers who already have their own footage. If you don’t have any surf footage, stay tuned. We may have a few options for you in the near future.

Our goal is that surfers of all levels will come out of the coaching sessions re-energized, re-inspired, and equipped with specific techniques to help take their surfing abilities to the next level.
