The sport of SUP is much more accessible than surfing, and riding small waves is often enough to feel the "gliding thrill." But to take on SUP surfing, it is better to go step by step.
– Do you know how to catch your first backside wave (your back to the wave)? Gliding down to the shore and letting yourself be carried by the wave should not be difficult.
– Your next challenge: adjust your trajectory—which is often too straight towards the shore—in order to make the most of the natural movement of the wave. In fact, a wave is not fixed and tends to break to the left of its length, viewed from the shore.
Before your takeoff—the crucial moment where you are pushed by the wave, paddle on one side to direct yourself towards where the wave hasn’t broken yet. Accompany its movement, then when you're “in” the wave, place your feet in a surfing position: right foot in front if you're goofy, left foot if you are regular. Then steer your board by turning your head and shoulders to the direction you want to go and the board will follow.
