What is the fish ladder transition?

The transition between the first and the second waves is known as the fish ladder which might be accomplished with the short length rope as well as an excellent method to practice.

How to transfer waves?

Before starting the wave transfer you have to take some turns exploring the surface beneath the water's surface and to get a little deeper you have to get a run where the bubble line merges with the smooth water.

  • When you get along with the wave, dip down the surfing board with much energy, then rise up the board with much power to be on the top, and then pump out.

  • After pumping away the boat, turn as much as you are going along the boat at the 90 degrees, you just have to take a quick turn like a fish hook and then aim your target, wherever the surfboard takes you.

  • With this same principle, you have to do the wave transfer on the second, third, and so on waves. In the fish ladder transition, you can always stay inside the water but for coming up you have to come up with more power.

  • You have to exert extra pressure on your front foot and target a little deeper and take your time to make a wave transfer.

For the wave transfer in the fish ladder transition you have to follow the simplest summary below;

  • Drift back and get the speed.

  • Quick turn from the motor boat and sink low.

  • Bring it out with more power and turn away.

  • Aim your target and turn back for the high wave transfer.

  • Repeat the same principle.

Advanced foil surfing is not a dangerous water sport, all you have to master is the surfing skill, but the danger comes when you choose the equipment, you have to select the fins and boards accordingly. You have to get the metal fins instead of the fins that are made of fiber or plastic, otherwise, the wrong equipment will cause any sort of accident.
