Always be aware of the conditions around you. If you get stuck in a rip, don’t paddle into it. Paddle parallel to the beach until you’re out of it.
If you’re paddling for the same wave as someone else, the person closest to the peak has priority. The peak is the part of the wave that breaks first before peeling down the line. Typically this part of the wave allows you to stand up first.
Wait until you can feel the wave pushing you to stand up. It’s helpful to start in the white wash util you get the feel of it.
To stand up, put each hand on each rail and pop up. Remember to stay low and keep your knees bent.
And don’t forget if you’re not having fun, you’re not doing it right.
If you want, we’ll take you surfing.
