Step One
Wait to do this trick until the lip launches you out. You almost have to wait a little longer than an of the lip or you’ll fly out the back.

Step Two
Land with you tail first, because it gives you a little bit of a stop motion to regain you balance. If you go all the way around, the G-forces will just throw you right off you board.

Step three
This is how you do a Pat O’Connell 360 floater.

Step Four
It’s the same formula as your basic floater, which is still a very critical move in surfing. Just keep yourself weightless until you hit.

Step Five
Poise your knees for landing, like you jumped off a curb or something.
