You can play at the mega body twisting slash backs and whatever else but I reckon if the wave ain’t stoking you, you won’t be able to turn too good at all just due to lack of speed – this is the bain of all beginners.

Nice post Esonscar. Just wonder if I can pick your brains. You mentioned that at beginner stage you don't want to break the down the line surf cos fear of losing the ride by making a move that then messes up and that's exactly where I am. I've had a few 3ft glassy sessions recently and everything has been clicking - great popup and turn down the line nestled right up against the wall of the wave with stoke at an all time high.
However, it got me thinking, what do i do next? From what I can glean (correct me if i am wrong) i need to generate some speed down the line by going up and down the wave, rail to rail, (which will send me ahead of the wave) which will allow me to make a turn and get back to the breaking part of the wave - is this possible on 3 foot waves with a 7' 6" minimal? How would the turn work?
