Well at the moment I don't really have time to draw you a picture at the moment but the important thing is to approach the ball at an angle and hit it while bending your body (this comes naturally from approaching it at an angle). Basically with your foot just follow through. Look at Beckham for example he has maybe the most exaggerated follow through and bend in his body and that's why he's able to bend it immensly. Now all you have to do is go and practice,practice,practice!

Delone.

Everyone's technique is different. Seeing a guide by one person doesn't mean that you will be able to do it his or her way.

Really, it's all on where you kick the ball. Which you should be able to find logically. *If I am kicking the ball towards the bottom, its going up, if i kick it in the middle, it is going straight. What if i kick it to the side a bit?= It will had spin to it, and hopefully curve*

But remember, spin doesn't mean curve. If you kick the ball to hard, it will just spin through the air and not curve. It takes a certain velocity of the ball to create the high and low pressure eon either sides of the ball making it curve.

You need to take it slow, don't go out and just start wailing on the ball. do light chip's trying to get a spin on it. Once you have figured out where you should plant your supporting foot, where to hit the ball and how to follow through, then and only then can you start kicking harder and for distance. If kicking with your instep is not working, why not try the side of your foot? It's all about experimentation. Beck's didn't get good by mimicking someone else's, nor did Roberto Carlos. They found their own technique that worked the best for them.

It takes time. It won't come right away. Once you start getting frustrated the longer it will take. I don't mean to sound like an ass, but really it just takes time and thinking through the problem that you face and working around it(or through it).

It took me ages to learn how to do an inside curve and I am still not 100% on it. It just takes time. I am just learning the outside curve. And it did not come to me in 2 hours. I worked on it for a summer and by the end I was able to do it only about 25% of the time. And I read one guide. Took that information, looked at the ball(literally) and figured out how I was to accomplish this feat.

Watch videos man, watch how people do it and see if that helps. No "magical guide" or "one technique" is going to work for everyone. I'm sure everyone here has a part for their technique from different players, that combined has worked for them.


Now I am ranting, so I'm gona stop myself.
I Hope this helps, I really do, be patient and don't get frustrated.

I find it easier to hit it with a inside curve then to just drive it with my instep. I always lean to much and create to much spin. Delone like Agnew said there is no ultimate guide. You need to find the technique for you, but just hit it at the side coming in from an angle and you should notice results pretty soon.

I wanna add something else. You posted Links to "How Becks Curls" or something like that, I mean how much more do you need? Soon you will have a stack as high as the Empire State building in tutorials on how to kick a soccer ball.

Okay, lets say we have a ball.

Lets say your right footed. You want to curl the ball on the left side, you will kick the ball on the left side to where your aiming and it will curl.

Lets say your right footed (RIGHT FOOTED, NOT LEFT). You want to curl the ball on the RIGHT side, you will kick the ball on the right side to where your aiming and it will curl (you should be good at kicking the ball though, it's doesn't add as much power as the first one, but it has a better and more controlled curl).
