Please listen to my worries.
I stall when going from the bottom to the top of the wave.
Are you jumping at the bottom of the wave?
Are you jumping on the surfboard?
Jumping makes my body lighter.
Makes it easier for the surfboard to reach the top of the wave without stalling.
By jumping, you will be able to reach the top of the wave as shown in this image.
The effect obtained by jumping
Your weight is on the surfboard.
Your weight reduces the ability of the surfboard to rise to the top.
So remove your weight from the surfboard at the right time. The way to do that is to jump.
Do not take your foot off the surfboard when you jump.
Stick the surfboard to the jumped foot and head towards the top of the wave with it.
Below is an image of the bottom turn.
The surfboard rail is in the water.
There are four forces on the rail.
・Momentum when reaching the bottom from the top.
・The power to lift the rail
・Force to lift
Jump in this state.
The three forces are released and turn into a force towards the top of the wave.
Force to lift is explained in detail below.
Does your foot get off the surfboard when you jump?
The surfboard is heading to the top of the wave,
so jumping will keep the surfboard on your feet.
This is similar to the skateboarding ollie technique.
Practice jumping on land
Tell me how to practice jumping.
It is good to train on land.
Try to fly as high as possible.
I know I bend my knees.
But do the arms need to be raised to the arms of the head?
It is very important to raise your arms above your head.
Many surfers do not raise their arms above their heads.
By raising your arm high, you can definitely reduce the load on the surfboard.
It’s a great technique for ups and downs, top turns, and off-the-lip.
I found it very important.
