The Lip flick

Another variation on the re-entry is the lip flick. I position this move between the aerial and lip role, you're too late to get above the wave but not too late to resort to a lip role. Once you hit the lip you flick your hips so your backside is facing the beach and kayak is standing vertical. Your momentum should then bring the tail down to the base of the wave without nosediving. Slide the nose around quickly to escape the pitching lip.
