So lets start by determining your skill level before we relate your body weight to SUP Board volume;
Beginner – Has paddled on flat water and excited to try SUPSurfing and may well have tried to paddle over and sup surf small waves with and dont understand if a wave is a left or a right and what SUP Surf etiquette is.
Beginner plus – Catching a few waves (20% of the time) but find you are missing alot and then falling of your board pretty quickly, dont understand if a wave is a left or a right and know what SUP Surf etiquette is?
Intermediate – Catching more waves (50% of the time), having some issues getting over waves but getting better, starting to traverse accross a wave with your back foot towards the kicker pad engaging the rail to complete a bottom to turn off the wave and can change direction / round house and of course apply surf etiquette when your in the line up?
Intermediate plus – Catching more waves (70% of the time), can engage your rail without bite, can complete top and bottom turns and change direction as you now understand wave direction and of course apply surf etiquette when your in the line up.
Advanced – Comfortable in head and half sets,
