How To: Surf a backside tail slide and recover for shortboards

Surf a backside tail slide and recover for shortboards

Dane Reynolds explains how to throw your tail, slide, and recover on your backhand. Thrash it out with style. You need a steep wave that's not too powerful to throw you off. Stomp on your back foot to project into the lip. Then put your pressure on the front foot to throw out your back foot. The sweet spot is between the barrel and the soft shoulder. Check out this how-to surfing video for the right, steep wave for these surfing moves.
