Learn to Duck Dive properly, Step by Step.
The duck dive is the technique used by surfers to sink their surfboards underwater so they can dive under waves with their surfboard.
It takes years of practice to develop a great duck dive technique, so don’t get discouraged. The good news is that you can practise these steps in many environments: in a pool, in a lake, in the ocean, etc. Once you’re able to do proper duck dives, you waste less energy passing the break, keeping your paddle power to catch more waves.
