I am unstable after taking off. Also, the surfboard just runs straight and I have no control over the surfboard. Where is the problem?
What is your foot stance?
I’m not good at take-off, so I can do my best just to stand. Therefore, I don’t know the stance position. But I can’t put the back foot on the traction pad.
The cause is that your stance is wrong. You need to correct it to the correct stance.
I don’t know where the correct stance is.
This time, I will talk about the foot stance at the time of takeoff.
- 1. Place the front foot in the middle of the surfboard
- 2. Place the back foot in the middle of the three fins or slightly on the nose side
- 3. One of the reasons why you don’t get the right stance is because your body is stiff.
- 4. You can adjust the stance of your feet by placing your hand at the time of takeoff
- 5. At takeoff, pop up while touching the traction pad with your back foot
Place the front foot in the middle of the surfboard
First of all, I will tell you the correct position of the front foot. Place the front foot in the middle of the surfboard.
Do I have my front foot in the middle of the surfboard during takeoff?
From my point of view, Oliver has a narrow stance. It is behind the correct front foot position. So put your forefoot in front of you.
What kind of practice should I do?
First, check and remember where the middle of the surfboard is.
I will teach you how to practice later.
Place the back foot in the middle of the three fins or slightly on the nose side
Place the back foot in the middle of the three fins.
I was never aware of the position of the fins. what is the reason?
The relationship between the position where the back foot is placed and the position of the fins is important.
Placing the back foot in the middle of the three fins makes it easier to load the fins and make them easier to accelerate and turn.
It’s was so. I flip the surfboard over and check the position of the fins.
You put a traction pad on the deck surface. If you check where on the traction pad is in the middle of the three fins, you can put the back foot in the correct position.
That’s a good way. I can see the position of the fins by looking at the traction pad without looking at the bottom surface of the surfboard.
If you place the back foot around the side fins, it will be easier to accelerate. The turn will be a little harder. If you want to focus on acceleration, put your foot next to the side fins.
What if I put my backfoot behind?
If you place the back foot on the center fin, it will be difficult to accelerate, but it will be easier to turn.
One of the reasons why you don’t get the right stance is because your body is stiff.
I will talk about how to practice putting your feet in the correct stance.
First of all, please practice takeoff on land. Line up your surfboard next to you and actually pop it up. What is the position of your feet? Compare it to the surfboard next to you.
My stance is very narrow. The front foot is slightly behind the center of the sir h board. The back foot is on the front side of the traction pad. It is in front of the side fins.
At that position, it becomes quite unstable. You are out of balance and fall into the ocean or have no control over your surfboard.
What should I do?
Practice repeatedly on land. You seem to be stiff. Make your body flexible by stretching or yoga. In particular, allow the hip joint to move flexibly.
You can adjust the stance of your feet by placing your hand at the time of takeoff
At the time of takeoff, you can easily adjust your foot stance by adjusting the position where you place your hand.
what do you mean?
The pop-up first puts your hand on the surfboard. If you move your hand closer to the nose, your foot stance will also be closer to the nose. If you place your hand closer to the tail, your foot stance will also be closer to the tail.
In my case, the foot stance is closer to the nose side. So, should I put my hand on the tail side?
That’s right. This is a very good method. Please try it.
At takeoff, pop up while touching the traction pad with your back foot
At takeoff, you can check the position by touching the traction pad with the toes of the back foot. It may be difficult at the beginning. However, with a lot of practice, you can be sure that your backfoot is in the correct position on the traction pad.
It’s a way to check the position with my toes, so the success rate is likely to increase. thank you. I’ll try.
