What You Need to Know About This Program

You Don't Even Know What Your Bad Habits Are
Most Intermediate Surfers are "stuck" because their bad movement habits are halting their progression.  You need a new lens and understanding of what GOOD surfing actually is.  This program will give you a true awareness of surfing biomechanics.  You can't change anything if you don't know what is Wrong, and what is Right. 
It's Your Body, Not the Board
You need to STOP spending 1000's of dollars on new surfboards.  The board isn't the problem, the way you move your body is the problem!  This course will teach you the Fundamentals of surf movement so you can Actually Progress your surfing!  Take the brakes of your surfing with GOOD technique.  
Practice at Home Then Surf in the Water
Do you think you're actually going to correct your technique on the 4 waves you get, on your 1 weekend surf, for a total of 30seconds of actually standing on a surfboard?   NOPE!  You need a way to build repetition, to build motor memory, to FEEL the new patterns.  This program is to your surfing like a driving range is to golf.  Practice your surfing at home, build the pattern, become efficient, and then you can replicate it in the surf. 

Most Surfers Don't Even Know Basic Wave Mechanics... And Definitely Don't Know How to Move Their Body to INTERACT With a Wave.

    Wish I picked it up sooner

    This is by far one of the most genius products to improve your surfing skills and with a piece of cardboard no less. The walk up was my first “aha” moment and it all came together after that. The program explanations and demonstrations make perfect sense and are super easy to implement. Lose your ego like me and learn these new skills pronto. This is the one. 5 stars!

    Really really fundamental stuff that I wish I learn't years ago

    I’ve been working through the cardboard surfer and its immediately changed my surfing. I can’t reccommend the programme enough. It’s so effective and provides you with the best visual representation of what you need to be learning and training – developing the right technique and habits on land so that you can unlock your best in the water.
    I’ve watched every surfing tutorial available on YouTube but none of them even touch upon what’s inside this program.

    Excellent and informative, I’ve found my surfing level has increased significantly over the past few months, (not from an increase in getting to surf,unfortunately) but from an increased understanding and awareness in what I need to be doing when I’m going for, getting on and riding a wave (much better to do the right thing less, than the wrong things loads of times!). Great videos in bite sized segments that are real easy to digest and remember. Highly recommended.

    unbelievably valuable!

    I watched all the videos in Cardboard Surfer and, holy shit, it was like a million lightbulbs going off in my head. I was like ‘I do that…I do that too…Yep, that’s me…’ I’ve never had any coaching or even a lesson, and I had without a doubt plateaued. So last night I surfed the wave pool in Bristol, UK (same design as the Melbourne pool) and I felt like a different surfer. Genuinely! I had so much more flow, my coffee cup arm was helping me drive, I was getting the board on rail and, according to a mate who was in the session with me, throwing loads of spray. He said it was the best he’d seen me surf. I’ve never thought about what my rear arm should be doing, but now I see the coffee cup everywhere on every good surfer. So I guess I’ve been watching surfing, but not taking it in, until you and Clayton pointed it out. Deceptively simple but unbelievable valuable info. So thank you, and please thank Clayton. I can’t wait to see where I’m at after a couple more weeks of walking up and cardboard surfing.

    Me parece un estupendo programa para mejorar la tecnica y los movimientos del surfing, tanto el contenido como la app.
    Sencillo de seguir y muy efectivo.
    Traslada el surfing a tu casa, reeduca quitandote los malos habitos y transformandolos en movimientos correctos y fluidos.
    Justo lo que hace falta para evolucionar ese surfing estancado desde hace años o para acelerar el aprendizaje.
    La mejor inversion que he hecho hace tiempo.
    Gracias Cris!

    I love it!

    For a long time I watched videos of pro surfers and tried in vain to understand how and why they moved on the wave.

    All this has changed since taking the Cardboard Surfer program. I love the concept of breaking down the complex art of surfing into simple, repeatable movements that I can do at home with nothing more than a piece of cardboard. – Clement

    Thanks for this program and all that you do man!

    After purchasing the cardboard surfer videos I’ve noticed entirely new train of thought on how I approach surfing. Understanding how to use my body to control the board on the wave rather than using my legs to press on various parts of the board is just one example. I finally have gotten the “feel” of unweighting and when I surf I no longer think about it, it just happens! As a med student who does not have the time to get in the water as much as I would like, this is amazing supplemental training that’s actually applicable in the water. My only regret is that I didn’t discover this sooner.

    Insanely stoked about Cardboard Surfer

    First off I can’t thank you enough for the content you’ve put together. Just the key aspects of every program associated with your name is so insanely functional. I’ve worked with strength and conditioning coaches at the highest level of professional sports for years and never have I been taught about training muscle memory to improve my craft, in this case surfing. To me surfing is pretty new, I got into it a year ago after moving to the Cocoa Beach Florida area. I can’t tell you how much time I’ve spent practicing pop-ups, and turning just in my living room. Hours poured into watching pros, and tutorials on YouTube from guys that can surf really well. All that did was teach me bad habits, because the surfers I watched either compensated for their own bad habits, or I had no idea if the body positions I was in were right. Now I watch people surfing who I would have considered decent or good and think to myself, man that guy is working way too hard to move that board. Leaning and thrashing, not looking in the right place, standing sideways and not head on, and burning speed. My gained awareness has me taking so much confidence into the water my next time out.

    The Cardboard Surfer Program is a GIFT FROM GOD!! AWARENESS, AWARENESS, AWARENESS!! A couple of weeks into it now and for the first time I’m AWARE of what my body needs to be doing!! I can feel when I’m out of alignment or moving like a complete kook because I’m AWARE of the proper body movement. As someone who has played sports their entire life I had no idea I could be in such violation of the basic movements required to surf well. You preach training proper movement through muscle memory and dude you delivered in a big way! A couple of times per day I go through the movements taught in this program and every time I realize something I had been doing all jacked up and WOAH!! I can actually recognize it, adjust my body position and fix the bad movement. This program gives surfers the tools to troubleshoot their surfing. Diagnose a bad bottom turn, or tweak your technique to create some extra drive. This was the best investment I’ve made for my surfing! It’s kept me super stoked through our flat spell, while applying everything I’ve learned on some cone drills with my skateboard. Now I’m just dying waiting for some hurricane swell to go apply this stuff!

    If you’re new to surfing don’t even bother going out until you’ve gone through this program. Intermediate or advanced surfers, buy it now. Don’t hesitate, the content has enough for all skill levels to be worth the cost. I promise you will learn better AWARENESS, and tips to tweak the smallest of things in your surfing. Like Kelly said, “Surfing is three things, leaning, compression, and twisting.”

    Insanely stoked about Cardboard Surfer and how it has completely opened my eyes to how the body is supposed to move!

    The Cardboard Surfer program is excellent.

    I can honestly say that surfing and skating have a very different feel. The front-centric surf feel has been an eye-opener and explains my inability to turn a surfboard when deploying a ‘skate technique’ of pushing into both wheels/heels/toes and relying on their friction to dig into turns. And obviously, skateboarding relies a lot on the back foot with ollying and pushing into the tail (except if you’re a gun that can skate both ways and therefore use your nose as a tail as well. This is not me!).

    That’s where I found the Cardboard Surf program really helpful. And I’m glad that I completed the Cardboard program before completing the drills of the surf skate program. That way I already had the feel way down before jumping on my surf skate. That helped me move onto the front leg on the Surf Skate and be conscious of when I’m moving the weight too much to the back foot. So maybe recommending to do the Cardboard Surfer before the Surf Skate program could be helpful.

    But you’ve totally changed my understanding of surfing, so at least I can practice that on the Cardboard Surfer program. I don’t need much of an excuse to want to carve up a bowl). With any luck when I get back into the water – probably near next year at this rate – it’ll all be rehearsed, muscle memory-d and my wave riding will come alive.

    Cheers and thanks for your and Clayton’s surf enthusiasm.

    I am a middle aged man, intermediate surfer, most basic turns. I have had the Cardboard Surfer for almost 3 weeks now, and it is now starting to make differences in my surfing! The first couple of sessions after going through the walk up was not really working for me so I had to change it slightly to my needs but now seems to work better. And as for the cardboard surfer I have performed some slides that seemed ok in the water, but , after this mornings session on one wave where I got to perform a cardboard surfer after a cardboard surfer after cardboard surfer that has me smiling hours later and had the comments coming in from friends that have noticed a difference in my surfing, Yew!

    A way to develop muscle memory when the summer doldrums hit.

    Here on the EC when summer time hits, the surf slows down if not halts. Going through the program helps keep your muscle memory on point and fresh. I’ve learned a few techniques that when the swell showed up I was surprised that I actually caught one where as before I probably would have missed it. If your on the fence like I was about the programs, just do it. You’ll thank yourself later.

    This program is best money I have ever spent on my surfing advancement. Over the past 10years, I have spent money on private lessons amd watched tons of YouTube vids and my surfing was still average. I can’t believe I have never had true help with my surfing until now. Cris is an expert in his field and the real deal. He is helpful, genuine and a guy with integrity in the way he runs his business. I have experienced this first hand. If you want to get to it and get better at surfing and get your body in peak performance for life get any of these programs today. Don’t waste another 10years flailing around thinking you have the basics down. Get this program. U will be shocked at how fast you progress and feel in and out of the water.

    Like every other beginner / intermediate surfer I though I was doing well. Then you see a video of yourself and think: What? is that me? Bad posture and out of balance all the time. The cardboard surf program gave me some amazing insight of changing all that. Still working on my posture ( Rome isn’t build in 1 day ) but my wave count went up from 50% to 80%, just with some little tips. Great program for every surfer that wants to get better and a must for every beginner surfer.

To have it broken down into simple drills you can practice on dry land before transferring what you’ve learnt to the water is amazing!

    Blown Away - Cardboard Surfer

    I went back surfing during the pandemic since everything was closed (Gym, Jiujitsu Academy, Parks, Etc.) and you can go to the ocean but can’t stay at the beach in Hawaii. Picked up the cardboard surfer a few weeks ago. Mind blowing paradigm shift stuff! My pop up improved and and my the exercises strengthened my knees (my quads really). The repetitive pop-up exercise became second nature that it even helped me with my takedowns in another sport. Now I understand what “drive” really means. Don’t hesitate, get the program!

    Great Program and well worth the investment. Been surfing regularly over 15 years but picked up bad habits and techniques that have been limiting further improvement.

    Half the problem is understanding what those bad habits are and how that limits your ability to improve. I watched and practiced the cardboard surfer program numerous times and was able to pick up a lot of useful practical tips, techniques and advice that translated into a direct improvement in my surfing (whilst really understanding what I was doing wrong). Highly recommend the good straightforward professional advice and explanations that this program provides. Surfing like most sports needs repetition to improve technique the develop correct muscle memory.

    Amazing technical approach to surfing

    So i’ve seen hundred of surf tutorials. This is the only one that really made me undestand what surfing is really about and improved my surfing in just one day. This is not a step-by-step tutorial that is impossible to apply because you’re just not that good, this is a extremely simplified explanation of surfing fundamentals and their analogue to other sports. This is going to help you understand what to do and when because you understand surfing not because you saw it on a tutorial.

    "I was blind but now I can see"

    An unintended biblical reference but to be honest most appropriate. As a life long intermediate level surfer I was so stuck in a non-progressional mode for way too long. I had fought against what always felt natural and bowed to the “standard” way to accomplish the pop-up, which should be referred to as the “walk-up”. For anyone struggling with the most fundamental aspect of surfing I honestly could not praise this approach any higher (“I was blind but now I can see”). This “cardboard surfer” is honestly the key to unlocking so many other aspects of your surfing. Cris and Clayton have done a stellar job of walking you through this widely troubling aspect. Gove this training an honest effort and I guarantee you you’ll have quite a few “aha moments”. Thank you Cris & Clayton. 5 star plus.

    Appreciate all the resources you offer, keep it up!

    Being a surfer for over 25 years the Cardboard Surfer program helped me see the nuances of good surfing technique and gave me the knowledge and tools to undue the bad technical habits I’ve been forming over that time. The level of detail and approachable nature of the information made it easy to understand and implement.

    As someone who lives inland and can’t get to the beach as much as I’d like the resources Cris offers to keep the body in shape allows me to still get quality sessions, catch waves, and surf competently as if I am able to surf regularly.

    I am at the beginning of my surfing journey. And I took this program for one thing: to speed up my progress.
    It helps so much to form good habits and focus on the fundamentals. And that greatly simplifies the vision of surfing. It shows that Cris is really keen to give the clearest and fairest advice possible. It is not only a question of learning to slide on a cardboard, but of understanding the basic mechanics which govern a good and stylish surf. After following this program, we immediately spot what is wrong when we see others surfing. It is really a chance to have access to this today! Thanks man !

    Keep up the great work.

    I just wanted to tell you how big a fan I am of your program. I was a decent surfer when I was younger, but had a 12 year gap where I didn’t surf, plus a neck injury I was recovering from. I’ve gotten pretty close to my skill levels and fitness from my younger days, plus corrected several bad habits/mechanics in the process. Seems like everything I’ve tried of yours is gold, especially for someone who has had to come back from a pretty serious injury. Keep up the great work. All the best, Scott

    A massive thanks for your help!

    Aloha Cris
    I want to take a well-deserved moment to say a massive thanks for your help via your program, and regular Instagram motivation which has also improved my approach and outcomes to cooking too. Things have been gradually improving and coming together since I started with your program, and…….. I had an awesome surf a couple of days ago, where a few things aligned and I got a bunch of waves and rode them with more focused awareness resulting in better positioning, more confidence, quicker take-offs, more rail time, and longer rides……… so stoked!!!! It’s been many years, and I specifically attribute 99.99% of turning the clock back to my significantly improved SSC training program (including the cardboard surfer) and surf knowledge and awareness that I have learnt in the last 6 months from you
    I’m still working my way slowly through the programs so there is still heaps more knowledge and skill work to tap into and I’m loving it. Thanks heaps, and all the best,

    it's been a revelation!

    I’ve been surfing for around 20 years and was recommended the cardboard surfer program by a friend who was also an experienced surfer, I was intrigued,
    I purchased the program and my son and I watched all the videos. The pop up was enlightening and I realised that I was taught and using a poor technique. I still see people being taught inferior methods.
    The pump when trimming was another penny drop moment! The movement was familiar to me from skating on a halfpipe, but I’d never linked it with surfing.
    I’ve applied these to my surfing since and it’s been a revelation! Thanks so much!

    Worth every penny!

    Hi Cris, my wife and 8yo daughter gave me your program for Christmas. Since we all surf together it was really a gift for all of us. We’re watching your program as a family…it’s awesome. We usually watch a video or two on the program before we hop on our boards and practice and critique each other on those drills. No more big effort pop ups. Just to land with feet in the wrong position and have to readjust on a critical part of the wave! It’s wild to get this knowledge after surfing nearly 30 years and see how much more fun we can have in the water by being intentional about our focus for that session. It is such a great asset for my coaching my daughter too. It’s crazy to go out in the water and see how few people really pay any attention to their technique. Glad we’re not in that camp any more. You’ve really got some incredible programs and have put a massive amount of work into putting them together. We appreciate that work, the improvements its already bringing to our surfing and even drawing us closer as a family.

    I wish I’d have bought it sooner.

    I was told about Cris and his videos by a friend who was organising a trip to the Mentawais. Initially I just watched the YouTube strength training videos and the ‘packing for a trip to Indo’ which was really useful.
    I randomly ran into Cris in the water at Macaroni’s a few days before the Corona virus forced us all home early.
    When I was allowed back in the water back home, I purchased his program. His relaxed but quick walk up and totally focusing on looking down the line has massively improved my ability to get waves. I hardly ever fall on take off, and that definitely wasn’t the case in Indo

    Once on the wave, the arm/leg/coffee cup positions, no poo man, twist, be like a sprinter feels great, brilliant advice.

I’m taking different lines on the wave and throwing much more spray. I finally understand the shape of my boards.

    cannot believe what happened on my last wave!

    First surf in 7 weeks, have been doing all the cardboard surfer stuff daily and some of the Bosu stuff you guys posted on social media. I cannot believe what happened on my last wave: Short and sharp backhand wave into the shore break. I walked up effortlessly, suddenly flew down the line (must have been the walk up to cardboard slide combo I practiced at home), did a bottom turn into the lip of the shore dump, and believe I pivoted of my front foot freeing my fins(never had that feeling before), did NOT get stuck in the lip but landed safely in the flats ahead of it. I don’t know about that whole wave, I have never felt anything like that. I have surfed for 20 years now, probably the last 10 to 15 on my same intermediate to shit level. Maybe those past 7 weeks have changed my surfing. Just an addition: I did the exercises thoroughly, filming myself, checking my form, comparing my posture to pro surfers, and thinking about the process and surfing nonstop! The cardboard slide generated incredible amounts of speed, but felt completely effortless, I don’t recollect needing any power whatsoever. I guess the unweighting is the trick really.

    Loving the program

    I love your work, my only regret is I didn’t find you ten years ago. Your programme has been life-changing for me. I have found an exercise routine that really suits my ageing 50-year-old body, I also have a chronic lower back issue from 30 years of landscaping. But I can honestly say I have never felt this good in 20 years. I have been trying to learn to surf for 5 years. I am 110miles from the nearest coast and west wales is fickle, to say the least, but I am undeterred, your programme makes me feel like I’m making small steps all the time and I can really feel it when I do get to surf. Also, your programme has really helped with my mental health and well being through the pandemic and through losing close family members. Your breathwork introduced me to Wimm Hoff, cold water therapy, o2 advantage and blue mind, which has all become part of my daily/weekly routine.

    Appreciate all the resources you offer, keep it up!

    Being a surfer for over 25 years the Cardboard Surfer program helped me see the nuances of good surfing technique and gave me the knowledge and tools to undue the bad technical habits I’ve been forming over that time. The level of detail and approachable nature of the information made it easy to understand and implement.

    As someone who lives inland and can’t get to the beach as much as I’d like the resources Cris offers to keep the body in shape allows me to still get quality sessions, catch waves, and surf competently as if I am able to surf regularly.

    I'm so happy to have found this program!

    I want to leave a review, I just don’t know where to start! I’ll give it a go anyway… 
    For years I’ve been struggling with my pop-up, which has been very inconsistent especially in more challenging surf. I attribute my plateauing at the low end of the intermediate surfer spectrum to it. This made for very frustrating sessions at times. And a failed surf trip in Samoa, ironically probably close to the top of my surfing form. Scouring the internet I just kept getting conflicting info on the proper way to pop up. Starting with the chicken wing and then becoming convinced I had to jump on my two feet. Method for which I don’t have the required core strength and flexibility. And for context, I’m 38 and I have some legacy minor lower back issues. 
    I discovered the cardboard surfer on Instagram, by following you and then Clayton, and just couldn’t wait to get the full course. I can only say that while I’m still not a great surfer, my pop-up (well my walk-up) is at least 5 times more consistent and I enjoy my surfs a lot more simply by making more waves.
    I also get more and more of these “aha” moments on waves, keeping up with it with a cardboard slide or the realization that arms up and front/coffee cup do wonder for stability and turns. 
    And to top it up you keep updating the programs with refreshed and new content! 
    So a big thank you, and I hope I’ll be able to redeem that failed Samoan trip at some point!

    This program has been extremely helpful in identifying and clearing out those bad habits (you know the ones that hinder progress only after realizing feeling it in the water) and also gaining body awareness. This brings out results in;giving confidence from land traininglooking for & feeling out the power zones of the wavegliding across and making the section or overtaking drop-in’sdrawing out turns with REAL lean and holding the rail engaged back to the power zone still high on the face

    I feel these are the results from your program, your App updates keep it fresh.I can recommend the program as applying to real-life surfers all in the preparation in chasing and dialing in for THAT wave, whatever the conditions.

    Kook off those bad habits

    I bought this program after reading “nosupermanchris’s” review on Reddit. After 10 years of paddling out, my surfing felt like it was in a rut. Time watching You Tube videos was helpful, but I found many of the drills for increasing skill only marginally transferable to my time in the line-up.

    The program is well put together. It starts with reviewing core concepts before moving onto drills. The program is broken down into a series of lessons that all build off of each other. After 2 weeks of doing the program I began noticing a difference in my surfing. Although I do not do the cardboard drills as often as I should anymore, my turns feel better and my ability to maintain control while popping up has increased significantly.

    $127 for a program that will improve you surfing better and cheaper than a new board or fins is well worth the investment.

    I’ve been following Cris now for about a year and only have good things to say about his programmes.
    For some background, I’m 40 years old and live in-land so only get to surf once or twice a month and I was always struggling to find training that was specific to surfing….I’ve been training for years now, from weight training to swimming, cycling, running, yoga, pilates, cross fit etc.
    Since working through the programmes, the latest of which is the body weight training, I’ve seen amazing results in both my physical and surfing ability – I’m far more mobile, flexible and my paddling endurance has improved significantly!
    I’m super stoked and can honestly say Cris is one of the most knowledgeable and passionate people I’ve come across and his practical application of training principals in a simple and easy to understand format makes this training so special and I would highly recommend it to anyone, not only surfers, as it definitely offers amazing results both in and out of the water.

    I never thought I would ever learn to surf a short board.

    Learning how to “pump” properly has been a huge game changer for my surfing. The Cardboard Surfer program not only teaches you the technique but you actually experience the sensation in your body of what a real “pump” should feel like in the surf using only a piece of cardboard. I was surprised how well this translated into the water. Throughout my time surfing and learning from Cris I’ve let go of my 9’0” longboard and am now comfortably surfing and new 5’11” twin. Even though I’ve been surfing for almost 20 years now, Cris’s programs have taken me to the next level. His attention to detail has brought out the small but necessary tweaks that I needed to make in order to fully embody my movement and style on surfboard. I will always look to Cris for my surfing performance progression.

    Surf faster

    Before the Cardboard Surfer program, I had not progressed in years. My surfing was slow. I felt like I was always struggling to get speed. Through the Cardboard Surfer program, Cris and Clayton opened my eyes to how to generate more speed on a wave. Then they showed me a simple and effective way to practice and repeat it at home. Not only am I surfing faster now, but my style has improved and I am able to do more maneuvers with the speed that I am generating. Surfing has become way more fun. My surfing has gone from dull and lifeless, to fast and lively. Get this program if you want to surf faster and with better style.

    Who knew sliding on a piece of cardboard would change the way I surf

    The cardboard surfer program is packed with instruction and “ah ha” moments that have changed the way is surf. Small adjustments taught/discussed in the app have helped make huge improvements in my surfing, such as consciously being “front on”. For some it may be a given but I started surfing way later in life and just the smallest tweak of my hips forward have changed my ability to turn better and generate more speed. I can’t recommend the program enough.

    Great program!

    All of Chris’s programs are great. Currently working on bodyweight surf workout and it is legit. I come back to the cardboard surfer if I haven’t surfed in a while. It helps get the body coordination back, plus the cardboard slide is a gamechanger. I would carry a piece of cardboard in my suitcase and practice with it on the road.

    Exceptional product

    Very well researched and top of the game. The walk up analogy was definitely my ah ha moment
    Plenty more though

    ‘Page-turning’ content, professionally delivered

    I found Cris by accident through one of the YouTube teasers and even though I’m a level 0.5 beginner, the logic of what Cris was talking about resonated with me as someone from a science background.
    On buying the programmes, it was refreshing to have an app sitting on the iPad and it made it easier to progress through the content (which in itself is all worthwhile and eye-opening stuff).
    I think Cris is a really good presenter and you can see he is really passionate about his subject(s) and he makes it very easy to keep interested in the content, delivered in bitesized chunks.
    For the cost fuel and of a couple of sessions at Bristol’s “The Wave”, I have lots and lots of content that I can go back to again and again to help my dryside drilling so that when I do get into the water I can hopefully progress at a half decent rate.
    I am even getting to grips with a Carver and I never thought I would see myself as a skater!!!
    In summary: buy the programs, you won’t regret it.

    Massive knowledge and nicely build. I have been on my carver for some years, but the program helped me focus on some details that i would not have othervise. Also it helps you with awareness and gives you focuspoints. I would highly recommend

    The Cardboard Surfer program was fantastic, it’s easy to follow and has lots of ‘a-ha!’ moments. It has honestly improved my wave count and stoke!

    The missing link

    I have been a UK based surfer for approx 10 years. I really started to focus about 5 years ago. The progress was steady but happening. I then stagnated until I started the cardboard surfer program. I realised for 9 years my stance was wrong! I was poo man. I was well known for my distinctive stance but I didn’t realise this signature move was also holding me back. After rewiring my pop-up with the walk up and being conscious of my stance after a few sessions I already feel that I have broken the plateau and on my way to my next goal. Bigger turns. Which co-incidentally the cardboard surfer program has given me some of the tools to help as well. I have followed Cris for years and really rate his work and I am glad I bought into his community!

    Great programme!

    Thanks so much Cris and Clayton! Cardboard Surfer has definitely helped me getting through a plateau with taking off and trimming on shortboards. I’d been struggling for a while in transitioning to a shortboard as I live in a town with a notorious beach break where you have to be quick. Couldn’t believe it when a fun two foot swell turned up recently and I pulled off a dozen long left handers. Will continue to dip into this programme as I progress. So stoked!!
