ABOVE LIPLINE DRILLS
To get surfers putting themselves or their surfboard above the lipline of the wave on every manoeuvre.
Ask the surfers to go for a light jog on the beach followed by stretching exercises.
Clarify with them the effort expected by the coach and explain the benefits of the training to their surfing performances.
NOTES TO THE COACH
This drill forces the surfer to surf with commitment.
The surfer must make every manoeuvre as complete as possible to achieve the goal of getting above the lipline.
The lipline can be thought of as the very top of a wave, the part one would ride while performing a floater
Note: Coloured surfboards will stand out more than clear surfboards when performing lipline manoeuvres as strong colours will leave a more lasting illusion on the viewer.
