The backside bottom turn is a very useful linking manoeuvre to master along with the front side bottom turn, if you want to make the most out of waves breaking both left and right. Much like the frontside bottom turn (as covered in our previous video) the backside bottom turn is used to link together other wave manoeuvres and keep yourself positioned in the best place on the wave. There’s no doubt about it… the backside bottom turn is harder to carry out than the frontside bottom turn, and well worth trying AFTER you’ve got to grips with the frontside turn.

Don’t expect to master your backside bottom turn first time. It takes practice and fine tuning and it will feel very different between one board and the next. But it is well worth learning, otherwise you’ll only ever be able to ride waves and link manoueveres in one direction (front side).

Watch this video to find out more about how to carry out a back side bottom turn and the different styles.

If you want to make the most out of all your surfing sessions this year, add the backside bottom turn to your skill set. You’ll be glad you did!
