Surfing Oceanside on Small Wave Days

By

When I teach Oceanside Surf Lessons, there is always at least a foam wave rolling in next to the Pier. The foam wave is how beginners learn to catch waves and stand up on their boards for a ride to the beach.DSCF1923

Once they master catching waves and riding to the beach they can paddle to the outside and catch bigger foam from the outside waves and get a longer ride. On small days, there is the opportunity to begin catching real waves by taking them at an angle or down the face.

I will paddle out on one of the 8′ soft top boards on small days and catch a real wave at an angle or the foam and pump it to the inside until it reforms and then run down the pocket. The small waves give you an opportunity to practice accelerating in the pocket, cut backs, and ripping the lip.

The waves aren’t moving too fast and you can practice the carves and full body rotations in slow motion as you feel your balance. Even riding foam, I might make three or four big turns or cut backs on the way to the beach. I introduce my new students to this when they get their balance so foam becomes more fun.
