How To Do a Bottom Turn (Lesson 6)

Difficulty rating - tricky

If you don't take off at an angle, you will need to turn off the bottom of the wave in order to set you up for the rest of the ride.

1. As you drop down the face of the wave, transfer weight to your back foot, lean on your inside rail and angle your body toward the face of the wave.

2. Keep knees bent, hips low and even out your weight on the inside rail.

3. On completing the turn, centre your weight back over the board and either enjoy the ride or get ready for the next manoevre!
