Bottom Turn

Bottom TurnFrequently, but not always, the initial move of a ride, a bottom turn is a wide ranging, highly effective move that allows the surfer to build speed and route for the ride. It's a turn made at the bottom part of a wave after the surfer has dropped down the wave face. The bottom turn also determines or re-sets the rhythm of subsequent turns to be accomplished during the course of the ride and is most likely the most significant turn in surfing as it sets up all other moves.
