How to do a floater – Floaters not only look amazing and super critical when they are performed at high speed but they can also be done without needing much speed at all, they are actually the easiest maneuver to do when you have very little speed, so how do we do them? We will start off with how to do a floater with no speed and move onto the high speed critical floaters, but generally it’s exactly the same formula whether you are trickling along or going mach 10!
So why do we do floaters?? They are done on a number of different levels, the main obvious one is that they look pretty sick, what your essentially doing is your toying with the wave, its energy is flowing and pitching out towards the beach and your defying it by using your speed to go along the lip in a different direction.
