Why Start Surf Skating
Better balance on the board. The position on the surf skateboard is very similar to that of the surf board. The positioning of the feet, the inclination of the body, the compression and the extension of the knees represent the same position as when pumping on a surfboard. This is one of the main reasons why we recommend surf skating to every surfer.
A surf skate helps you achieve a better posture on the board. Good posture affects the behaviour of our surfboard. The posture is simple: feet apart, shoulders and upper body slightly turned towards the board nose, knees slightly bent, arms loose and hands pointing forward. The key: know your starting position and integrate it into your surfing process. You can practice this posture again and again with a surf skate. Without having to wait for a wave. Once you’ve automated this posture, it’s easier to guide it from the road to the water.
