The backside top turn is just like a front side top turn in that it’s a linking manoeuvre designed to kill speed and keep you in the critical section of the wave. It’s definitely harder than the front side top turn but is more impressive to watch when done well.

It takes practice to get the positioning and timing of your backside top turn just right. But once nailed you’ll be able to link all your manoeuvres and make the most of every backside wave coming your way.

In this ‘How To’ backside top turn video we talk through when to do it, how to do it, the key components making up the manoeuvre, and top tips to get it perfected.
