Ive been shortboarding for about a year but Im struggling to be consistent with the basics. Whats the best way I can improve my bottom turn?

Chris, bottom turns set up your whole wave and so its important to draw the best line and then hold it like a champ. This does put a lot of strain on your legs though. Every wave requires a different line, some want you to drop lower and shoot back up while others call for a more down the line approach. Watch other surfers, watch some footage of pros and try and see how they do it. When you have a good idea, you might want to try first workout we talk about in this article as a good way to strengthen the leg muscles and correct your form.
