The balance of the object determines where the surfer will stand to perform the many different manoeuvers in surfing a wave.
These illustrations indicate in general terms how to surf each object using the correct technique to achieve maximum performance from each design. It does not matter where the widest thickest part of the board is located on the object, that is the area the surfer will try to surf the object from as it usually provides the most volume and plan shape curve, these 2 features are necessary for support and manoeuvrability.
I have set out four illustrations showing how each design is best ridden to achieve maximum results.
