Learn to Surf – Noseride
Why do you want to learn to surf? To live incredible sensations. And there is no better feeling than sliding on it with your feet firmly planted in the abyss of the "nose" of your longboard. This is what is called “Noseride”. And if you haven't tried it, you have to!
Learn to Surf – How to Do a Noseride
Taking advantage of our new collaboration with Rising Sea Soul, this Friday we come to give you a new tip to improve your longboarding skills.
If you want to learn how to do a noseride this year, we have some tips that can help you:
- The right equipment: We always put emphasis on this, but it is the truth. You need a board that is at least 19” wide at the nose and 16” at the tail. It is also important that it has little rocker to be able to walk easily on your board. Our Longboard 9.2 model is a good example of what you need.
- Location on the wave: As you walk forward on your board, you will see the board pick up speed. That is why it is important that you are as close as possible to the foam (pocket) when you go to do a noseride. In this way, you will accelerate on your board without going to the area of the wave that has no power. Otherwise, the wave will stop dragging you.
- Getting to the Nose: It seems obvious, but the most important thing to be able to reach the nose is that you know how to walk on the board. For that, take a look at our tip on how to improve your cross-step.
Put these three tips into practice, and you may be experiencing a noseride, sooner than you think!
