WSL Surf 101: The Two-Turn Combo

WSL Surf 101 breaks down the basics of surfing for a better understanding of the Championship Tour. This episode features Jessi Miley-Dyer, Head of Competition for the World Surf League, talking about the "Two-Turn Combo".

The two-turn combo is the DNA of every surfer and the marker of their individual style. Defined as two turns executed in succession, these combos are key to high-scoring waves on tour. From speed gouges to shifty slashes, fins out to power hacks, these turns define who you are as a surfer.

No one moves through turns like seven-time World Champion Stephanie Gilmore, and there's not a single person on the planet who lays into powerful waves like two-time World Champion John John Florence.

Kelly Slater? He's got one of the most recognizable two-turn combos of all. Keep in mind that even though CT surfers execute turns with technical perfection, they're somehow always projecting their personal style.
