How To Storm Chase by Brawzinho

How to wave ride in side on shore over powered conditions

For onshore I personally prefer to have a very fast board, which allows me to ride a smaller sail than usual. Waveriding frontside in onshore conditions is hard, and especially if you are getting over loaded on the sail, so having a fast board will help a lot. Going frontside you can keep going longer and more vertical on your button turns if your sail isn’t too powered up, as long as your board keeps the speed. On the jumping end it’s pretty much easier to do all the moves if you have a smaller sail, so yes, choosing the right gear is very important. Apart from that I think just training and repetition, getting used to all the little details and spending extra time will take you further than anything else.
