Boofing Waves and Holes

In this video instruction update, we cover a topic that distinguishes many novice and intermediate boaters from experts. The skill of boofing or quartering waves or holes is the difference between keeping the boat dry and flying over features vs. swamping the deck and potentially getting a quality beat down. There are three things to focus on when working on this skill; the angle of the boat relative to the current and the feature, your edging and a well timed stroke to sweep the boat over the feature. In many ways this is not much different than rock boofing as the three main points remain the same. We provide some excellent examples of these three main points and drive home the point when we show you how to approach a rapid set with these skills.
