Prone Turn

The second of two turns we use to control our surfboard as we navigate the line-up and setup waves. We use this turn when maintaining paddling speed is more important than direction change, like moving towards a peak that’s still far enough out to sea to allow time to change your position before it and catch it.

Because you’re laying down in paddling position while executing this turn, it’s radius is much wider than the sitting turn. Choosing when to do a prone turn vs. a sitting turn is a personal discovery that depends on the time you have to execute the direction change, and the time you have to be at paddling speed.
