Backside Cutback

Josh Kerr helps you bring this dynamic move to your surfing, opening more options and power to your carves. The Backside Cutback tends to be an underrated move, however, when you do one in the right section, you generate speed and open up options on your rebounding frontside. Josh teaches you the main components to learning this maneuver, from toe position and arms, to where to be looking. His step by step details will help you gain power through your turn, throwing more spray and having more options when you come back to the foam. When learning this maneuver, it’s best to start on a slopey part of the wave, bringing your board back to the foam and power of the wave, waiting for the wave to steepen up. As he reminds you, where your eyes are looking is key to all surfing maneuvers, especially a Backside Cutback. And as Josh explains, the best part of learning and improving your Backside Cutback, is the rebound you get back to your frontside. This gives you options for a Layback, Frontside Re-Entry, Air Reverse, or just bouncing back.
