The Inertia

This “Surf Scenarios” series is designed to help you understand intermediate and advanced techniques, giving insight into a variety of surfing maneuvers. Here, Safari Surf Adventures co-founder Tim Marsh and pro surfer Pete Mendia review goofy foot Asher Nolan going right and executing a textbook backside snap at a beach break in Florida. Asher’s mechanics are on point and they serve as a good reference for any surfer who wants to know what a solid backside snap looks like, or even just understand the step-by-step process of perfecting their own hack.

Only the best. We promise.
