Let’s start with this teaser video that gives you an idea of not only what is to come, but why you want to surf this way (Top to bottom surfing).
One their site they say: When SUP surfing, your aim should be to get the most out of each wave. And that means not only positioning yourself on the right part of the wave, but also choosing the right manoeuvres at the right time on the wave. Every wave breaks differently and therefore you need to adapt your riding and manoeuvres to suit each wave. Get it right and you’ll be enjoying plenty of long fun rides. But do you know the difference between a top turn and a cut back? In this video we’re going to be giving a brief overview of some basic SUP surfing manoeuvres… what they’re called and when you’re likely to be doing them on the wave.

One their site they say, Once you’ve mastered the SUP surfing basics, and managed to successfully catch a few waves in towards the beach then it’s probably time to start thinking about the next stage of surfing – riding along a wave. By this I mean directing your board down the length of the wave rather than directly in towards the shore. With a bit of practice doing this will allow you to enjoy longer rides and get you in the perfect position to carry out other surfing manoeuvres and progress your SUP surfing to the next level.

One their site they say, A good bottom turn is essential for good SUP surfing. It is the fundamental linking manoeuvre carried out at the bottom of the wave face, and is used between all other turns. It is also an excellent manoeuvre to help generate speed on the wave. Having a solid bottom turn is what often makes a surfer stand out from the crowd.

One their site they say: The top turn is a manoeuvre that not only looks good but feels fantastic too. This week we are going to be looking at the frontside top turn, which on a good wave you will be likely to carry out several times on a wave. Performed directly after the bottom turn the top turn is designed to keep you close to the breaking section of the wave where there’s more speed and power.

One their site they say: The video, Is about how to Become a better SUP Surfer through basic foot placement for the various moves. Once you are able to navigate around, and are able to catch a few waves, then it is time to focus on foot placement, it all begins here.

One their site they say: Catching a wave early and enjoying a long ride from right out back is a great feeling. To get into waves early there are a few fundamental things you need to do and in this SUPboarder video we talk about just that.
They say, use the Surf Stance to get a better surf session, regardless of the conditions thrown at you. Getting into the wave early, and already in surf stance allows you to make more sections of the wave, for a longer ride.

One their site they say: Knowing which way to go on a wave will mean the difference between just catching a wave, and catching a great wave! Go the wrong way and you’ll soon end up in the white water being washed in towards the beach. Go the correct way and you’ll hopefully find yourself on a long, clean, unbroken wave. But, how do you know which is the correct way to go on a wave?

One their site they say: Timing your turn and paddling onto a wave is crucial if you want to be catching a wave on a SUP! There’s nothing worse than seeing the best waves pass you by or not having your board point the right direction on the wave. SUPboarder explains how you can time your turn to perfection and what the best position is for your board to ensure you get on and stay on your next wave. Using this technique along with ‘paddling in surf stance’ (watch video here https://www.supboardermag.com/2016/08…) will help you to catch even more waves. So get out there and practice putting the two together, so you can catch the wave of the day!

Improved stability. Being in Parallel Surf Stance whenever you’re in the lineup gives two benefits in stability. 1) It provides sideways (left and right) balance and 2) front and back (nose and tail) balance.

Australia’s Best SUP surfers – PART 1 (Stand Up Paddle)
Some of Australia’s best SUP surfers competed in the 2018 NSW State SUP Titles in June 2018 with 3 days of consistent swell at One Mile Beach at Nelson Bay, around 4 hours north of Sydney. Some of the big names were Kai Bates, Harry Maskell, Justin Holland, & James Casey showcasing why these boys are/were on the SUP world tour and blasting every wave and section that presented itself. This is Part 1 as there was too much good footage to fit into one song, so stay tuned for part 2. The speed and projection that these boys get on any sized wave is second to none, and I love competing against these guys as it always pushes my surfing and the levels seem to rise in each and every contest. www.surefireboards.com Filmed & Edited by Mick Slattery Song: 500 Miles – The Flatz If you like these types of edits please subscribe to our channel to keep up to date and show us that you like our videos.

Note, I LOVE my Infinity RNB, Absolutely LOVE it. So fast.
The Video, tells all about this design, the BlurrV2
Oh my. If this does not get you amped, well, perhaps lay off that there vape thingy. That is a SUP worthy wave for sure. That board looks super fast and clean. Great ride, great camera shot and editing.
They say: In Episode 004, I went to Infinity Surf Shop in Dana Point to pick up a new SUP surfboard. We talk to SUP shaper Dave Boehne about board speculations and some future projects for the rest of this year. The new Blurr V2 model is the ultimate performance SUP. I was able to get it in the water the following day for an awesome test run! The board worked so well, I can’t wait to get more sessions on this one. It is a very dependable board and will most likely be my competition board for the rest of the contest season. 5 stars, 10 out of 10, 100%, etc… Board is amazing. Very stoked how this episode came together! Big shout out to my filmer Marc Treiser for always nailing the shots, and to Eric Geiselman and Marco Colombatto for giving me some awesome music for the surf part.
