1. “Gabriel Medina’s Pre-surf Warmup Routine” – video

This video was shot on the beach at the WCT event in Newcastle, displaying the warmup that Gabriel does before surfing. Check out the “Fitness for Surfing” section in the “Surfing University” area of the site to view this video.

2. “The Full Snap – Should be a surfer’s 1st Choice” – video

This video highlights the fact that all good surfers perform a full snap as their first choice when they enter a pocket section. There are other options of course, but by performing the full snap, surfers can maintain their speed and flow effectively when faced with these surfing situations as they are surfing down the line. Check out the “Decision Making” section in the “Surfing University” area of the site to view this video.

 

3. “Going Vertical in Sucky Finishes” – video

One of the harder manoeuvres to perform in surfing is to go vertical in a sucky end section. Many who try this manoeuvre variation get caught in the lip and get smashed as they descend back down the wave. Getting off the lip quickly is the secret to making this difficult finishing manoeuvre. Check out the “Masterclass” section in the “Surfing University” area of the site to view this video.

 

4. “What the Pros Do – Sucky Finishes” – video

This video provides examples of what the pros do when faced with a sucky finishing section. Check out the “Masterclass” section in the “Surfing University” area of the site to view this video.

 

5. “Just A Few More Degrees” – video

This video compares the verticalness of John John Florence’s backhand finbust to Courtney Conlogue’s finbust. Both are excellent, but John John’s is more vertical – something that Courtney could focus on when training to make her finbusts even better.
