Back to basics

I’m trying to undo some bad habits I picked up over the past 4 years of surfing:

Poo stance

Looking down

Not using hands and body to turn

I’ve gone back to the old BIC board and small easy to catch waves so I can get as many rides in as possible. I made progress on turning down the line without stalling, looking towards where I am going, and arching and looking down the line as I pop up. The later sets up the board on an angled take-off which in the past I had to struggle to achieve with asymmetrical strokes.

Here’s a video of one of today’s rides, not the best though.
