hey all, have seen a lot of guys having a great time pulling into closeouts.... just wondering whats best to be safe, fall straight down and try go under the wave? fall and tuck into a ball? jump off the back??
happy surfing everyone

The wave will tend to carry your board forward, which is why you kick it out in front, and the part of the wave just uphill from the trough will give you a bit of a cushion to hit and you're not super likely to get sucked over the falls.
At least that's what I read in an old surf magazine.
