Been seeing a few photos on blogs as of late and a lot of weak pussyfooted turns, this is Greg at Malibu around 73 or 74 and is a textbook hull turn IMO. #1 drive the board down the face with your feet parallel across the stringer.

#2 set your line and press over with even pressure with your upper body leading the way and bank that baby over on rail, loading the fin up.

#3 now the fin is laoded up and the rail is engaged and your ready to spring out of that turn and site where you want to go next. Thats a 7'0'' GL template Greg still makes. These are off a 8mm film by Mike and Ricky Brown, thanks guys!!!


  1. love it!!! i had the pleasure of surfing a liddle hull last year a few times. hands down the most difficult board to get right. very humbling. still want to get my hands on one and figure it out.

  2. Most guys over think it, its not that hard, just let the board do the work.

  3. OK. Now gently push your humility aside and do "Liddle bottom turn 101 BACKSIDE" please. Thanks.
