It's all about catching bumps and making decisions about where to paddle. Chase Kosterlitz explains it beautifully with the help of a few diagrams drawn onto the waves, and as the video plays through, he explains why you should never settle for running straight down a wave and into the one in front.

Speed up your downwinders, and link up bumps like the pro's do by watching this how-to clip by Chase Kosterlitz and the Stand Up Paddle Athletes Association.
