skate for surf training

Our favorite surfskate and carving models

Skateboarding was invented to allow surfers to practice their sport even in the absence of waves, so the surf-skate pair is certainly not new. Many surf schools regularly provide skate lessons as a complement to intermediate and advanced surf courses. "Skating has the great advantage of allowing you to train regardless of the conditions and allows you to repeat the movement until it becomes an automatism. In water it is not so obvious to take 10 waves in a session, and even if you take as many maneuvers you can do on With skateboarding, this problem does not arise with skateboarding, so we can show the movement to the allies and easily correct them until they perform it correctly "explained Alexander of Lanzarote Kite. " Furthermore - he added - I believe it is essential for those who do not live in places where there are waves every day, because our body needs to memorize the movements and repeat them. The more you repeat them, the more natural they will be in water, when everything runs out in seconds ".

For many years now, some skate companies have specialized in the surf skate industry. But what exactly is a surfskate? This is a skateboard with a particular truck that allows you to emulate the movement of the surfboard on the water, in particular pumping, thanks to a rotation on the horizontal axis .  However, not everyone agrees that it is only possible with this type of skate to train in the surf. Many prefer to use simple carving-oriented long skates. Clearly a lot depends on the sensations you are looking for and on your style even on the surf ... as well as from the wallet!

How should we choose our skate length? There are various factors to consider including your own weight and height (generally taller riders choose longer boards) and their own skill (shorter boards tend to be more suited to more radical maneuvers). However these are not rules. The most important factor to keep in mind is what we want to do with the table. Short boards are very fast and easy to handle. As the length increases, pumping stability and speed also increase. The Long boards are more stable, they are used for fast pumping but also very fluid. The lonk skates can't turn very quickly, but they have a higher top speed than shorter models. Normally they are more difficult to use to start experimenting with stationary pumping,

So here is our selection of complete skateboards for dry training: we have included both the famous surfskates and the more traditional longskates. Choose the one that's right for you and have fun !.

A little clarification: if you have never been on a skateboard before, know that it is never too late to start. With the skate, you quickly become confident and progress quickly. Take only a few precautions. In my opinion, hand protection is essential. For the rest, start strictly flat or with a slight slope, not downhill. First of all, learn to jump down if the skate takes too much speed ... and don't be ashamed even if you're a little bit over the years and look at you weird ... all envy!
