I´ve been practicing aerials for quite a while, but I can´t pop out from the lip, I think I may be doing something wrong, it´s not the speed and is not the ollie, maybe the bottom turn or something else about facing the wave or where I´am poping. I do skateboard but is really stucking my improvement. Any tips?

Answer

Make sure the wave is starting to curl over when you attempt an air this will give you something to launch from - bigger waves help here. It sounds like the issue is the bottom turn. As you build speed on the face of the wave, you want to gradually angle the board towards the lip, using as little rail as possible. A dramatic, sharp bottom turn will cause you to lose momentum and speed. Once you've veered up the wave, raise your body, grab your rail, keep your center of gravity balanced, and enjoy.
