冲浪相关术语Glossary of Surfing

About the water

Barrel: The effect when a big wave rolls over, enclosing a temporary horizontal tunnel of air with the surfer inside
Beach break: An area where waves that are good enough to surf break just off a beach, or on a sandbar farther out
Blown out: When waves that would otherwise be good have been rendered too choppy by wind
Bomb: An exceptionally large set wave
Choppy, chop: Waves that are subjected to cross winds have a rough surface (chop) and do not break cleanly
Close-out: A wave is said to be "closed-out" when it breaks at every position along the face at once, and therefore cannot be surfed
Face: The forward-facing surface of a breaking wave
Flat: No waves
Glassy: When the waves (and general surface of the water) are extremely smooth and glossy, not disturbed by wind
Gnarly: Large, difficult, and dangerous (usually applied to waves)
Line-up: The area where most of the waves are starting to break and where most surfers are positioned in order to catch a wave[3]
Off the hook: A positive phrase meaning the waves are a very good size and shape
Outside: The part of the water's surface that is farther from the shore than the area where most waves are breaking
Point break: Area where an underwater rocky point creates waves that are suitable for surfing
Sections: The parts of a breaking wave that are rideable
Set waves: A group of waves of larger size within a swell
Shoulder: The unbroken part of the wave
Shorey/shore break: A wave that lasts all the way to the shore before crashing
Surf's up: A phrase used when there are waves worth surfing
Swell: A series of waves that have traveled from their source in a distant storm, and that will start to break once the swell reaches shallow enough water
Whitewater: As a wave breaks, it continues on as a ridge of turbulence and foam called "whitewater."

Techniques and maneuvers

Air/Aerial: Riding the board briefly into the air above the wave, landing back upon the wave, and continuing to ride [3]
Bail: To step off of the board in order to avoid being knocked off (a wipe out)
Bottom turn: The first turn at the bottom of the wave
Carve: Turns (often accentuated)
Caught inside: When a surfer is paddling out and cannot get past the breaking surf to the safer part of the ocean (the outside) in order to find a wave to ride [3]
Cross step: crossing one leg over the other across the board (usually to make it to the nose)
Cutback: A turn cutting back toward the breaking part of the wave
Drop in: Dropping into (engaging) the wave, most often as part of standing up
"To drop in on someone": To take off on a wave that is already being ridden. Not a legitimate technique or maneuver. It is a serious breach of surfing etiquette.
Duck dive: Pushing the board underwater, nose first, and diving under an oncoming wave instead of riding it
Fade: On take-off, aiming toward the breaking part of the wave, before turning sharply and surfing in the direction the wave is breaking
Fins-free snap (or "fins out"): A sharp turn where the surfboard's fins slide off the top of the wave
Floater: Riding up on the top of the breaking part of the wave, and coming down with it
Goofy foot: Surfing with the left foot on the back of board (less common than regular foot)
Hang Heels: Facing backwards and putting the surfers' heels out over the edge of a longboard
Hang-five/hang ten: Putting five or ten toes respectively over the nose of a longboard
Off the Top: A turn on the top of a wave, either sharp or carving
Pearl: Accidentally driving the nose of the board underwater, generally ending the ride
Pop-up: Going from lying on the board to standing, all in one jump
Pump: An up/down carving movement that generates speed along a wave
Re-entry: Hitting the lip vertically and re-reentering the wave in quick succession.
Regular/Natural foot: Surfing with the right foot on the back of the board
Rolling, Turtle Roll: Flipping a longboard up-side-down, nose first and pulling through a breaking or broken wave when paddling out to the line-up (a turtle roll is an alternative to a duck dive)
Smack the Lip / Hit the Lip: After performing a bottom turn, moving upwards to hit the peak of the wave, or area above the face of the wave.
Snaking, drop in on, cut off, or "burn": When a surfer who doesn't have the right of way steals a wave from another surfer by taking off in front of someone who is closer to the peak (this is considered inappropriate)
Snaking/Back-Paddling: Stealing a wave from another surfer by paddling around the person's back to get into the best position
Snap: A quick, sharp turn off the top of a wave
Soul arch: Arching the back to demonstrate casual confidence when riding a wave
Stall: Slowing down by shifting weight to the tail of the board or putting a hand in the water. Often used to stay in the tube during a tube ride
Side-slip: travelling down a wave sideways to the direction of the board
Switch-foot: Having equal ability to surf regular foot or goofy foot (i.e. left foot forward or right foot forward), like being ambidextrous
Take-off: The start of a ride
Tandem surfing: Two people riding one board. Usually the smaller person is balanced above (often held up above) the other person
Tube riding/Getting barreled: Riding inside the hollow curl of a wave


Over the falls: When a surfer falls off the board and the wave sucks him or her up in a circular motion along with the lip of the wave. Also referred to as the "wash cycle", being "pitched over" and being "sucked over"
Wipe out: Falling off, or being knocked off, the surfboard when riding a wave
Rag dolled: When underwater, the power of the wave can shake the surfer around as if he/she were a rag doll
Tombstone: When surfer is held underwater and tries to climb up their leash the board is straight up and down.

About people

Backside - 反手浪。(指冲浪者站在冲浪板上的姿态,即左脚在前的冲浪者向左手冲浪;右脚在前的冲浪者向右手冲浪。)

Beach Break - 指有浪的区域底部全是沙结构的地方。

Cleanup Set - 指比平常的一组浪更大的一组波浪。因其扣倒时比普通的浪翻腾的远所以经常会令冲浪者脱离原位。

Close Out - 指一道浪整个同时扣掉。这种浪不适合冲浪。

Deck - 冲浪板面。

Drop In - 指同一方向同一道浪多人起乘。(冲浪的规矩之一:一道浪只允许一位冲浪者冲浪。当同一方向起乘时要让给最接近浪点最早起乘的冲浪者,其他人必须放弃,如果抢浪则非常危险!)

Duck Dive - 潜越。(一种潜入浪的动作,用手臂、膝部和脚的配合将 板压入水里穿过浪。)

Face - 涌面。

Fin - 鳍。(用玻璃纤维或其他材料制成,附在冲浪板的底部下方,控制冲浪板在水中的稳定性和方向。)

Fish - 鱼板。(一款厚且宽的短冲浪板。其额外的宽度和厚度使之非常容易的抓住浪,适用于较小并较弱的浪。)

Frontside - 正手浪。(指冲浪者站在冲浪板上的姿态,即左脚在前的冲浪者向右手冲浪;右脚在前的冲浪者向左手冲浪。)

High Tide - 涨潮

Inside - 指浪扣倒时里面的区域。

Leash - 脚绳。(一种连接在冲浪板尾部和冲浪者脚部的塑胶绳。其作用是保证冲浪者掉下冲浪板时依然与冲浪板紧密相连。)

Paddle Out - 指把冲浪板划出浪区。     

Pin Tail - 指尾部呈尖状的冲浪板。

Point Break -指有浪的区域底部全是岩石或珊瑚的地方。(Point Break比 Beach Break好因为其总是在同一个地方扣倒。遇冲这种浪时要注意配穿潜水套鞋。)
