Whilst Paddleboarding is a relatively straightforward sport to get started in, with most people making rapid progress within the first session, mastering tricks is a different ball game altogether. One of the most stylish looking tricks is the 360 but how on earth do you even begin to start thinking about pulling one of those little gems off? Luckily we have found a great little instructional video that explains all and will help you nail the elusive 360 in no time!
In the clip below, courtesy of 2standupguys.com, thankfully the SUP skills on show are much better than the music and audio editing employed in the instructional video! The first thing that is explained is the correct choice of fin and fin set up as this will make all the difference when it comes to being able to force the board around in the water.
There are two different types of 360 demonstrated, the basic frontside 360 performed on the tail of the board normally at the top of the wave and the Helicopter 360 that is performed off of the front of the board with your weight above the nose of the SUP. It doesn’t matter which one you opt for trying first, they look equally as good and once you have it mastered you will be the envy of all your mates in the Surf!
Get inspired with the video attached below and then get yourself out there and put it all into practice, be sure to let us know how you get on though?
