"I’ve spent years pushing for what I wanted in waves, but then I realised you have to be patient and read what’s out there. You can’t control mother nature, but you can prepare for that perfect set, the next section… kite control is the most important thing, the rest is experience."

Kite steering in waves

Kite control is key when progressing, timing is everything in the waves. Nail this and the rest is a breeze.


Reading the wave

Learn the break, the banks, the reef, the apex. Read the wave and you’ll know how to ride it.


Basic wave riding (side & side-onshore)

Aggressive kite steering and timing are key to tackling this downwind form of riding.


Basic wave riding foot position

When, where and how you place your feet on the board will improve your moves on the wave.


Foot transition in the wave

Say goodbye to sticky situations with some fancy footwork that will give you more ways to ride the wave.

Escape after a crash

Learn how to regain control and body drag away from the impact zone.


Top turn

Start out on the open face of the wave and then move closer to the apex, adding in your own style as you go.


Beachstart in waves

A solid beachstart is your first step into waveriding.   


Foam Climb

The foam climb is a great move to ride over a section which is already broken or to finish off a wave.



The Frontside-Air-Reverse is one of the most technical moves in the waves. Knowing an aerial of the lip and a toeside air 360 will help you to learn this move faster!
