No matter what level of surfing you are at be it beginner, or professional you will use the cutback. Like the bottom turn it is a fundamental manoeuvre for surfers to have in arsenal of tricks. A cutback brings you back to the power source of the wave, it allows you to throw some spray and put the surfboard on rail, a timeless power move and essential in all surfers repertoire.
The frontside cutback is a little more difficult then the backside cutback, this is because to perform a frontside cutback you have to turn your back towards the wave. As with all surfing manoeuvres we have to lead with the eyes and hands (this turns the shoulders) then follow through with the hips, knees and feet.
