How To Do Cutbacks – [Surfing Trick Tip]

Published on December 3, 2014 by ShackedTV

The cutback is usually the first surfing maneuver that surfers learn to perform.  This surf trick involves a surfer turning back towards the crashing section of the wave allowing the wave to continue forming ahead of them.  Quite often the surfer will rebound off the crashing section of the wave, generating speed to perform the next surf maneuver on the newly formed face of the wave.

In this surf video California’s Taylor Knox, arguably the world’s best carver, teaches you how to do both frontside and backside cutbacks correctly by performing a good bottom turn, shifting your weight forward and turning your hips, arms and head.
