You catch every wave the same way.
Watch for a wave that you want to ride. Lay on the board, begin to paddle, allow the wave to take your board, and pop up to enjoy the ride to shore. It really is that simple. But simple doesn’t mean easy.
When surfing, it seems the trick is to allow yourself to just jump up on a board that naturally floats on a water. The board is going to go with the wave anyway, you just happen to stand on it.
Sometimes you are a little early; sometimes a little late.
Most of the time you miss the wave because you stop to wonder if you’re doing it right.
