How to do a Backside Helicopter on a SUP

Helicopter? This means doing a 360 on your SUP while surfing down a wave.

I found this great instructional video on Stand Up Journal's website.

This is a great video minus the advertising from racer Chuck Glynn showing this maneuver in 8 easy steps.  As he says in the end practice is what makes it successful.  The more you paddle and surf, the better you'll get.  Be willing to make mistakes, wipeout, then try again.
