How To Duck Dive Surfing
The duck-dive is a hard surfing technique to master. This technique cannot fail to impress. Videojug aims to help you learn the duck-dive.
In this video, I'm going to show you how to duck-dive surfing. So, what we need to do is I'm going to show you on land, okay? First off, so once you're on your board, and you're paddling out and trying to get to the surf, once the white water is coming towards you, okay, what you're going to do is actually paddle harder. The faster you paddle towards the wave, the more chance you've got of actually staying still where you are, if you actually paddle into a wave, paddling towards a wave and then do your duck-dive with no speed nine times out of ten, that waves going to drag you back okay, so you want to get as much speed up as you can, paddle really hard, really hard, when you're about a metre away from the white water and the wave you want to duck-dive, put your arms by your rails of your surf board, and now, at this point, you're pushing the nose of your surfboard underwater, okay.
So you're pushing the nose with your arms, you're leaning up and you're pushing the nose of your board underneath the water Okay, so just a split second before that wave hits you, you actually put your foot up on the back of your board, up, and you dive down. Okay? Keep hold of the rails of your surfboard and now you're actually travelling underneath the wav, okay? So you just stay in that position once the wave has passed you'll naturally pop up the other side of the wave. So that is how to duck-dive surfing. .
