How To Get Back On Board From The Side

To get back on the board from the side, follow these steps:

  1. Swim to the side of the board where you want to climb on. You can take a moment to assess the water conditions and make sure it's safe to climb back on.
  2. Grab the board with both hands, placing one hand near the center and the other towards the tail. If the board is slippery, you can use a towel or a traction pad to help you get a better grip.
  3. Kick your legs and pull yourself up onto the board in a smooth motion. This might take a bit of practice, so don't worry if you don't get it on the first try. You can also ask a friend or an instructor to assist you.
  4. Once you are on the board, get into a kneeling position or stand up if you feel stable. Take a moment to adjust your stance and make sure you feel comfortable and balanced.

Remember to keep your weight centered over the board and use your core muscles to help you maintain balance. You can also use your arms to paddle and steer the board. Don't forget to have fun and enjoy the ride!
