How To Pick Your SUP Surf Break

 

SAN DIEGO, California - In episode four of Starboard and FCS SUP athlete Sean Poynter’s How-to SUP series, Sean gives us tips on how to choose your SUP surf break. Here are Sean’s tips:

Components to keep in mind:

 

1. Surf Shape

Slow and soft waves are a great starting point to practice on and gain your muscle memory for when you’re ready to step up to the more powerful wave shape and conditions.

2. Wave Height

Wave height is very critical in making sure that you are having fun and enjoying yourself as a beginner. If you’re a beginner trying to surf big waves, more likely than not, you’re just going to get beat up. Keep it small; keep it between that ankle to waist high, one to three foot zone and you’ll be great.

3. Crowd Factor

As a beginner, you want to make sure that you find a break that has the least amount of crowd in the water so that you avoid any obstacles for us and as well as safe for us and those that are around us. It is also going to make it easier for us to enjoy ourselves and our time on the water.
