The cutback is a flowing manoeuvre which uses your board speed to re direct you back into the critical/steeper part of the wave. You’re essentially cutting back across the wave to reposition yourself. As with all wave manoeuvres a cutback can be done either frontside or backside.

For a successful cutback you must have sufficient speed to keep your board moving back towards the white water. When done correctly, a cutback looks flowing and effortless. And it’s a useful manoeuvre to master to help you make the most out of your wave.

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