    Duck snorkeling is really a surfing technique employed by many surf ers to punch through heavy whitewater or perhaps a breaking wave using relative ease. To do
    learn to surf , it takes practice and time. Here are the steps to know how to duck dive a surfboard.

    Difficulty hard since the tide is approaching.

    A few feet before the wave hits, lean forward and push the nose of the surfboard down hard with the arms, extending your arms fully.

    Since you’re pushing down with your arms, then you’re likely to push down with one knee. Watch a seasoned surfer from beach and you’ll notice that while the knee is slowly shoving the tail down, the other leg is slowly wrapped up in the atmosphere, giving greater momentum into the knee that’s pushing down the tail.

    Chances are you ought to be fully underwater and the tide will probably be passing overhead. As the wave is departure, keep pushing back on the surfboard, however, try to keep your self horizontal to the board.

    The back force in the knee which pushed the tail down, may cause the nose to lift. Pull up now together with your fingers and you should pop at the rear of the tide.

    Since you may observe, there aren’t many steps involved in learning how to duck dive a surfboard. However, it is a skill that takes a lot of practice to get the timing correct. If you begin your duck dip too quickly then you may submerge and pop back up until the wave has completely handed. If you initiate the duck dip too late, the wave will hit before you’re submerged. It also requires a great deal of practice to find the technique just right. Pushing down the nose is not often overly hard, it is with the knee to push the tail which provides most anglers learning to duck dive the issue. Just keep at it, practice the duck dive on smaller days, and then use the eskimo roll (also known as spinning turtle) on multiple times until you become more convinced with duck diving.

    It needs to be pointed out that duck diving is truly a maneuver that is conducted most useful with shortboards. Duck diving could be achieved on a funboard (Mini-Mal ) or a longboard but it takes a whole lot more push to have the nose underwater. When I browse with a longboard, I choose to show turtle. I can not get enough downward force on the surfboard to submerge the board adequately beneath the water. I end up losing a lot of ground as the white-water pushes me back towards coast. I find for me, it’s more efficient to turn turtle and then continue once the wave has passed.
