Enter the water
You must always attach the leash to your back foot before entering the water.
The connection between the leash and the cuff should always point outwards to avoid hindering your movements when walking on the sand or during the take off.
Advance into the water until you are waist deep and then lie down on the board and paddle.
As a wave or the white water approaches, you must avoid it in order not to be pushed backwards away from the surfing zone.
You can do a "turtle roll" or a duck dive (see next video). Do not let go of your board to avoid hitting other surfers who may be behind you.
Similarly, do not paddle behind other surfers to avoid getting hit if the surfer loses his board during his duck dive.
