To catch a wave you have to match it's speed - this means good paddling which takes a while to perfect. When you have caught the wave properly you will know - it's basically when the wave takes over from you paddling and starts to propel the board forward itself. Once you get this right a few times it becomes a lot easier to realise what it is you are trying to achieve.....the more time you spend out the back the easier it will get.
