this is a very useful clip, just had a go at some of these drills. Given that the best surfing boards seem to be the most difficult to paddle and stay up on, any more advice or videos on this would be appreciated.

Thanks for an great video. Some of those moves are challenging and I’m spending a lot of time in the water but I’m also getting better balance and skills on my board! Cheers

Wow, somehow missed this. I love how you related the top turns to the pivot turns. I am now excited for a flat day. Also, I think doing these when it is choppy and offshore will be very helpful — albeit much more difficult. Definitely given me a lot of things to do on days that the mother nature isn’t giving out perfect waves.
