“How do I know if the wave is a right or a left?” “How can I know when a wave is going to break?” “What is a closeout?” These are very common questions we get from our students.
Reading waves itself could be considered an art. As you progress from a beginner to an intermediate, then to an advanced surfer, your capacity to read and anticipate waves will slowly increase. Take into consideration it’s not something you will master quickly. Reading waves better mostly comes by spending loads of hours in the ocean. This is why even after a few years of surfing, you might see local surfers paddling towards a wave before you even noticed a lump!
In this course, you will learn the most important basics to help you get started on your next surf session.
