Take Off – Chicken Wing

Learn to take off on smaller surfboards using the “Chicken Wing” technique.

A technique that works on both big & small surfboards.

Taking off on smaller surfboards, such as shortboards and fishes, is done with a different technique than the “push-up technique”. The main reason is that your feet do not touch the tail of the surfboard when you are lying down on your chest and paddling into a wave. Therefore, one solution is to bring your back foot up onto the surfboard’s tail, using the “chicken wing” technique.
