Backside Surfing

« on: June 06 2012 08:06:00 »

Hello People, So it's been, say, a Year since I engaged in a surf-life style. I'm doing good, I can catch the waves bottom turn, Pump up, even some good Snap attempts, but the one bloody thing I just can't do is Backside Surfing. I Paddle, Stand up and As I drop I always go forward (This when I'm attempting to backside Surf, cause with Front side I'm goodie), no matter what I do to turn to the backside I always go forth, as in in a straight line and When I try my best to put weight on my anckles I just Fall.
Is there any tips on this? I know it may sound a rather cliché question, but to be honest there aren't many videos on the web or topics explaining how to do it and Sadly I missed very good waves due to this. Any help will be Much appreciated. Thanks in advance. :)
