Team Rider Tom Butler gives you the low down on how to perform a frontside bottom turn.

1. The bottom turn is to line up the manoeuvre out of the lip.
2. Frontside of course you're digging into the toe edge - don't try to over weigh or lean into the bottom turn to much - just enough!
3. Distributing your weight onto one side of your board early and starting to reach down with your back hand will start the pivot and set you boards angle right... back towards the lip above.

4. AGAIN look down the wave on the drop and if possible eye up the next top section on the drop in. As you can see I'm at the bottom of the wave but my eyes are eyeing up the next section that I'm bottom turning towards.
