surf lessons; How to do a floater

Floaters are one of the funnest things to do on a wave. Its a very functional maneuver and you can make some pretty long sections. 


1) Get Speed and lots of it. You want to be able to climb on top of the lip and ride parallel to the wave face.

2) When you see the wave crumbling this is a good time to be up on top of the waterfall. 

3) Dont make to many adjusments and just let the wave do most of the work. Make sure you are on top of the lip and just hang there.

4) Come down with the lip and make sure you are centered on top of the board leaning forward with your front leg just pointing the board and the back leg strong and stable.

5) When you come down make sure you dont perl. Keep nose up and try a soft landing. 

I know its easier said then done but here is our youtube page of  how you can do this on a small wave.

Now get out there!
