The cutback is one of the most important maneuvers in surfing . It is usually one of the first maneuvers you learn, as well as the one that you will always be looking to improve on and putting style into it.
The first thing you need to know about the cutback is that there are as many variations as there are surfers in the world! Everyone makes their own style, and depending on the type of wave or the spot you may need to do a slight adjustment to help improve your cutback. The main things that are improvements are spray and speed, if you manage to spray your buddies while maintaining your speed throughout the turn you’re doing great!
