How to Surf for Girls : How to Turn While Surfing


Hi I’m Schell Michael, I’m here with Expert
Village and today we’re going to be doing a series on how to surf. So now that you’re
up and riding, you’re on your board, you want to start doing some fun things. It can kind
of get a little tedious after while just getting on that waves, standing up and going straight.
But also just have to be patient cause as everything it takes time to get use to something
and to get better. But once you want to start heading in that direction, you get on your
board, you’ve ridden a few wave, you’re feeling comfortable, you’re feeling good, now we can
start to learn how to turn and how to position your board on a wave to get you going right
or to left, instead of just going straight. What you can do which is mostly more for long
board which you will be on, you can kind of just take a little bit of step back, and that’s
what the fins are for. The fins are like your redder and when you put your weight back here
and you kind of disperse which way you want to go, then your board will go either to the
right or to the left. You see a lot of people out there that are right here in the middle
of their board, their knees are bend or they’re actually locked out. And they’re trying to
do this. Trying to go back and forth. That’s not going to get you to turn. The better way
to turn would be that bending your knees, taking a little bit of just a step back so
you’re leaning on your board, the nose of your board will lift up a little bit so it
will give you more leverage to go right or left. You want to like also turn your body
but you want to lean your weight into the direction you want to go. If you want to go
to the left, I’m going to lean back a little bit and I’m going to turn, like my body’s
going to go a little bit but I’m not going to be here in the middle leaning forward trying
to go to the left. No. You want to just kind of take it easy, have the casual relax position,
you bring your foot back here and then you’ll turn your body, instantly feel your board
starts to turn, when you do you have to scoop back up to more in the center of your board.
If you stay to the back, and you feel yourself turning, you’ll turn but then you won’t be
on the wave anymore. So it’s kind of like a little dance, you have to get used to it,
but once you do, it gets super easier. Just take a step back, you kind of turn a little
bit, then you step back forward, you’d be on the wave. You say, “hey I want to go right
now”, okay cool; same thing, take a little step back maybe, go to the right, and you
know, then get back to right back to the center of your board and you’re just here in this
comfortable position back, in your safety zone.

  1. This is a helpful video and very clearly explained. I think it might have been better though, if the board wasn't the same color as the ground.

  2. I hope this lady doesn't think that people are watching for her "expertise". I know I posted this before, but simply stunning tummy.

  3. schell is super cute. broad shoulders, and tiny waist. respect to her mad skillz! she makes me want to surf.

  4. thank you, and guys chill out shes ok but not naked, its surfing techingues, not porno! , thanks for the tip will try this

  5. I really want to learn to surf n currently bodyboard of the coast of Virginia, damn surfboards are expensive but this coast would be a great place to start learning, no waves and killer undertow (literally killer, people die drug out to sea). Anybody got tips or a place I can get a good yet dirt cheep board to start?

  6. Ok, so I just licked my monitor but that aside she's really cool and she's a good teacher, love the advice and her obvious comfort & confidence – her sense of physical attunement is fantastic …. and of course, I licked the monitor again.

  7. if only it were that easy! I really wanna just skip using my longboard and just go straight to a shortboard, I have this idea and it will be much easier to control?

  8. That was a good explanation. Tomorrow I will be trying exactly how you suggested . I'm a guy but I think your tips transcend gender 😉

  9. good video, but i have a short board, is it the same thing to turn? cause i catch waves so easy on it but it so hard to turn and if i do ill lose the wave.
