Pro Tip: How To Perform the Best Sup Race Starts

Thanks to Starboard Team Rider Beau O’Brian for a short course on how to perform the best race starts. Race organizers around the globe use varying race starts and Beau takes us through some key tips to get off to the best start.

Starboard’s Team Rider Beau O’Brian is back with another much needed training video where he gives easy to implement advice on how to best start a race and gain an advantage over those who don’t know these techniques.

He covers 3 types race starts beginning with the beginner version where you are standing next to your board, then teaches us the best way to get to our feet from a sitting position (legs in the water) start; and finally the most technical run from the beach start.

Enjoy the video and let us know what you think with comment below.
