Ever wonder how the pros catch waves easily? While there is a lot to talk about to truly understand all of what is going on when we takeoff on waves, in this three part series, I analyze the takeoff of Mason Ho, John John Florence, and Kolohe Andino and share some insight into the strategies they use in catching their very different waves.
This is part 1: Mason Ho's mutant beast of a wave. Here, Mason seems to paddle fairly hard to catch this wave, but we discuss why that is. In Part 2, we compare Mason's wave to John John's and then in Part 3, we compare both of these to Kolohe Andino's southern California wave.
Hope you enjoy and get something from this. These concepts are taught in greater detail in the Level 2 Paddling Technique Course where we focus on Catching a Wave - Positioning, Timing, Sprint Technique, Pop Up, and more.
