The top turn is a manoeuvre that not only looks good but feels fantastic too. This week we are going to be looking at the frontside top turn, which on a good wave you will be likely to carry out several times on a wave. Performed directly after the bottom turn the top turn is designed to keep you close to the breaking section of the wave where there’s more speed and power.

The top turn can be simple to start learning on a wave, but it takes practice and timing to perfection to nail a good one every time.  No top turn is ever the same as it depends on how much the rider commits to the wave and the manoeuvre.

So if you want to make some spray for your friends to see this year, and make the other surfers rubber neck when you’re on a wave, then the top turn is the manoeuvre to master this year!
