BACKFOOTED vs. FRONTFOOTED SURFING

If you talk to enough people about surfing, you are bound to hear the terms“backfooted surfer” and “frontfootedsurfer.” While these terms are pretty self-explanatory, there is a lot more riding on them than their simple definitions.Different boards and different styles of surfing work better with front andbackfooted surfing, so it’s worthwhile taking a closer look at the two approaches.Prior to the invention of the thruster, all of the boards being ridden were single finsand twinsand most of them were pretty voluminous, with wide points fartherforward than midpoint. While these boards could be ridden from just aboutanywhere (and often saw surfers moving their feet around on their boards whileriding waves), they were predominantly surfed off the front foot. This approach ismore drivey and forward-focused, emphasizing down-the-line speed and lateral railturns.The advent of the thruster turned the entire paradigm on it’s head. These lower-volumed, higher-rockered boards were loose and maneuverable, and the cluster ofthree fins at the back of the board allowed for aggressive, vertical, top-to-bottomsurfing. This approach is facilitated by standing with the back foot over the fincluster, and weighting/driving the board heavily on the back foot“backfootsurfing.”While backfooted surfing is certainly more common, frontfooted surfing is notentirely lostto history. Some of the wider, flatter, hybrid modern shapes lendthemselves to frontfooted surfing, such as ...Lost’s Puddle Jumper and Puddle Fish,and Hayden’s Holy Grail. These boards tend to be faster down the line and a bitmmore forgiving and user-friendly, while still maintaining much of themaneuverability of the modern high-performance thruster. Because they have manyof the characteristics of a retro fish, these boards tend to be surfed from the frontfoot. But because they also have many of the characteristics of a standardshortboard, it is pretty easy to transition back to backfooted surfing when you swapback to your normal high-performance board.Regardless of your style of surfing, Here at Hawaiian South Shore we have a widerange of boards that cater to just about every approach. Stop on by and take a look!
