In this new SUPboarder ‘How to video” series we look at SUP racing techniques with Ben Fisher, the 2017 Naish N1SCO European Champion. Ben shares with us his top racing techniques and tips which will help you get more out of racing and hopefully closer to that podium finish!

This second video is all about SUP buoy turns. Races can be won and lost at the buoy turn. So being able to complete a fast smooth buoy turn is vital to keep that lead, and for less time swimming and more time racing! The great thing about buoy turns is that they are easy to practice and you don’t need much space on the water to try them. Head to your local estuary and find some unused soft rubber boat buoys and set yourself up a course involving front and backside turns and you will soon get them nailed.
