About the course

Catching green waves is the ultimate goal for surfers, as this is where the most fun happens. Manouvers, increased speed, cool tricks... they all happen on the green part of the wave.
Transitioning from white water waves, to green waves, takes some understanding, as timing and positioning play a much more important role in the success of catching green waves.
This crash course will help you understand the major differences between white water waves and green waves, and tells you exactly what you need to do in order to transition to green waves in the fastest and smoothest way possible.
