Reading The Line Up

Every beach is different and every point break is different. Josh helps you understand the waves better, teaching you how to read the line-up and where to paddle out, making your day of surfing more enjoyable...and catching more waves. Taking your time is key. Josh emphasizes the importance of checking out the waves for 5-10 minutes, watching where the sets are going, identifying what’s happening when the tide is coming in, coming out, how much water is surging around, where the rips and currents are moving. Learning these elements from a world champion gives you more confidence and feels like Josh Kerr is right next to you on the beach, helping you navigate the ocean to rip more waves.
