Progress By Watching


The best way to get better at surfing is by just doing it. Practice definitely preaches if it comes down to trying to master this sport as the learning curve is long and not steep. Besides actually practicing though there is one thing that I continuously do as well. Watching surfing: in the line up, from the beach and then of course surf movies. Most important when you watch surfing is that you know what you want to look at. It is not going to help you if you simple just watch. You want to observe and analyse. Do you want to improve your stance, your take off, your bottom turn or your cut back? Wherever you are on the progression ladder of surfing, make sure that you know where you get stuck or what you want to improve.

Watching surf movies is a great way to learn as you can pause the frame and replay it again and again. There are numerous movies out there that I have seen but 99,99% are all men surfing. Incredibly inspiring but not aspiring as the guys can just physically do stuff that girls can not. That is just nature. So watching girls movies would be best, isn’t it that there are almost no girl surf movies out there (except for over-romanticized Hollywood-ones like Blue Crush). And then Lakey Peterson came out with her flick “From Zero to 100”. If there is one movie that should be on your computer, it should be this one. I watch it almost every week and makes me stoked to get back out there the next day and practice more. It is inspiring and aspiring to observe her and her skills in the water and even though I know that I will never surf like her, just watching and analysing, makes me push my limits further.

Go get it is what I would say and have an epic surf after. Here is the iTunes and Netflix-link.
