The Duck Dive

If you want to learn how to surf, then there is one very important tecqnique you have to master long before you even get to the point of catching a wave and standing up. This is called the duck dive. If you cannot do the a proper duck dive, then you will never be able to reach the line-up to catch your first wave. The sea will spit you out with each and every wave that hits you, and the duck dive is your only ticket to get pass the waves. But have you ever wondered what it looks like underneath the water when you actually do a duck-dive?  I was actually looking for wetsuits on the Internet when I saw some of these pictures* that I would like to share with you. They are sometimes more stunning than pictures of surfers catching tubes....

And of course, when well executed, the duck dive can even look good from the surface...

* Unfortunately I cannot take credit for any of these pictures
