In this free surfing video, an expert will actually demonstrate getting out in the water, catching a wave, and you guess it, surfing.
Here we are back at beautiful county line in Malibu. We're going to go out there and catch a couple long board waves before the high tide comes up. As you can see, we have 2-3 foot condition, slight crowd on the beach; nothing to worry about. Yeah, water is a little chilly this morning because of the poor cloud cover we're having and lack of sunshine. It's just another typical L.A. day, so enjoy the surfing. Thanks for tuning in to expertvillage.com. As you can see I got my leash around my leg around my knee. I'm not starting to walk out towards the beach. The surf is kind of taking a turn for the worst, the tide is high. Surf has kind of taken a turn for the worst. The tide is high. Surf is now maybe 1-3 feet semi inconsistent. That means the surf is dying. I'm going to try catch a couple of waves. Here I am, I'm on my knees paddling and there's a wave on the horizon so I will drop off my knees and get on my stomach and paddle. Then I would turtle dive by holding all sides of the boards turning over and letting the wave paddle over me. I do that and I turn over and I flip back up onto my stomach and paddle back out to the outside. I caught a wave off the horizon. I see which direction it's going to head and then I decide then I'm going to go for a lap. As I'm paddling, I'm watching, watching, paddling harder. I can feel the momentum of the wave pushing me, so as that happens; I know to stand on my feet. As you can see, I'm on my feet and riding. You can see the wave is very tiny. It didn't take me anywhere, so there's nothing I can do but fall off and catch the next wave.
