    Going Backside is a more natural way of surfing. Keep it simple - After hopping onto the board just lean your backend into the wave and feel the wave thru your feet. Once you get a good feel for it then you can start manuevering better. And most of all trust your instincts more going backside because your sight is hindered with your back is to the wave.
