TEACHER’S PET WITH THE PADDLE POSITION
The oval in the center of the deck allows inexperienced riders to better position themselves correctly on the board. Sometimes referred to as “the balance point”, the markings reduce the chances of being too far forward, which makes the board nosedive, or too far back making the board stall.
The outside lines of the oval are great guide as well as a hand-placement guide. By simply putting your center fingers (flat hands!) under your chest, you avoid intuitively grabbing the rails. This correct posture really helps in getting the rider into that pinpoint technique for the all-important ‘pop up’ from the start.
The centerline running from nose to tail acts as a guide to easily center your body from the left to right sides of the board. This creates confidence and riders know that time they get on the board, they are perfectly positioned.
Learning to surf can be exhausting so The Teacher’s Pet features a convenient handle on the bottom of the board, just below the rail and over its center of gravity. This helps surfers carry their boards to-and-from the spot with ease, instead of dragging the boards behind them.
A smooth constant rocker with a flipped nose and tail rockers make this board paddle easy and the extra nose lift makes taking the drop easier than most boards. (no more nose diving or tail stalls). A “Learn-to-Surf” setup with its positioning marks for paddling, hand placement and ultimately foot placement is designed to take the guesswork and bad habits out of the learning process.
