Always start out in calm, flat water and keep in mind you could be falling! So unless you’re in the tropics, a wetsuit may be a good idea.
- Get the board out into in water so the fin is free from hitting the bottom.
- Start out on your knees and take a few strokes on each side of the board.
- Slowly, stand up with one foot at a time and stay in the middle of the board with your feet parallel to the stringer – about shoulder width apart.
- Keep a slight bend in the knees and your core centered over the board.
