A buoy turn is a technique used in stand-up paddleboarding. The buoy turn lets you turn your board around a buoy, allowing you to go in a different direction. By shifting your weight to the back, the tip of the board rises, making it easier to turn around your axis.

This is useful in situations where you want to turn your board around quickly to find the right direction. It is a common technique in SUP races and is a good way to improve your skills.
