perform the coffin on a surfboard.

Trick: Coffin
Difficulty: Medium

1. The "Coffin" is an all time classic maneuver that any surfer should be able to do with a bit of focus and concentration.
2. You too can amaze your friends!
3. As the surfer is riding along, he picks a wave until he is able to gain control.
4. He/she will use their backhand to steady themselves.
5. One the surfer is sitting down, he's in a "praying" position just before he's about to "die."
6. When you lay back, make sure that you lay straight back, and don't tilt your head.
7. Keep the cheeks of your "bum" flat. If one cheek is pushing down too much, the board will tip and you will fall off.
8. Remember, keep your "bum" flat, your shoulders square and lay back straight, put your hands in a "praying" position and look forward.
9. Resurface and make your way back to your feet.
10. If you aren't able to resurface (successfully) you haven't completed the "coffin."
