Surf Patrol wrote:Duckdiving problems are common in the early stages of surfing. It is a skill that has to be practiced, and it is not made easier with boards that are hard to sink such as bics. You can duck dive them, but it is all about practice and timing. Get out there on a small messy day and get some practice. You will feel when you have done a good duck dive as you will go under the wave smoothly and not feel like you are going through the shaker.freaky_welsh_chick wrote:does the turtle roll really work
It does, but learning to turtle roll is again a skill in itself. You are better off to keep persevering with the duck dive and get it down - you'll appreciate it in the long run. Any surfer knows how frustrating it can be when you cannot get out back.

If you want help sinking the nose, put more weight on one side, that way the board goes in at an angle, rather than trying to sink the whole surface at once.
Once the nose has gone down and the wave is nearly on you, shove your head under the water (take a breath first).
Now, immediately, push down on the tail of the board and push your hands (and the board) forward, then, pull your arms in, and push the tail away with your knee or foot, essentially making your board swoop through an arc under the wave.
