Are there any tutorials (YouTube or step by step) on making these "Surfer or Tribal Bracelets". I've looked and can't find anything.

The part you've circled doesn't look like a knot, just a wrap, or maybe a simple whipping.

The smaller knots look like clove hitch or a constrictor knot.

Hi there, many thanks, but it's neither of those. This is a wrap as you say, but it holds together the various strands, so it seems to be a wrap that is pulled tight ?

Do the ends of the cord disappear under the coils? That makes it a very simple whipping.

Kiteman, any idea where I can see how the whipping is done ? I've tried to google it, but I just literally get 'whips'..lol

My go-to website for knotting is Grog's Knots.

Here is their "rope care" page, which is what whipping is actually for.

You could simply use a thicker paracord instead of the thin thread or twine, and add fewer wraps.
