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.

    Great way to advance your surfing

    The cardboard surfer program provides great exercises and insights into how surfing in the water should feel. It gives many exercises to practice at home (without looking like a kook to everyone) and to get a better feel for the board (and your own body). Cris and Clayton are very insightful and following them has helped me progress my surfing significantly.

    The Cardboard Surfer is the real deal

    For the past 17 years of me being a surfer, I’ve always struggled with exactly what to do when I’m on a wave. I’d see other surfers absolutely just ripping and I wouldn’t understand entirely what they were doing and why I couldn’t surf like that. Surfing didn’t exactly come natural to me and having been an athlete my whole life (also an ex NCAA D 1 athlete) I needed specific instruction on how to generate speed and turn my board. Enter The Cardboard Surfer. This program lays it all out. The program’s specific technique instructions were so thorough and precise that surfing finally made sense to me. I had tried using other surf technique instructions on YouTube but they paled in comparison to Cris’s analogy-based teachings like the “coffee cup” and “beer pass.” I’ve already incorporated the techniques on my carver surf-skate and am seeing incredible results (super stoked for the Carver program btw- DEFINITELY going to get that one when it comes out). Since I can’t make it out to the coast due to COVID-19 at the moment (beach closures), I can’t even imagine how much progress I’ve made since learning from the Cardboard Surfer program. I definitely recommend this program to anyone looking to level up their surfing!

    I’ve spent hours looking for clues in youtube videos as I’m learning to surf and it was so refreshing to find this program. It explained in a simple direct way the core movements needed to surf, and the common errors that surfers fall into as they learn the sport. It was shocking to see how I was doing them most of them! The corrective exercises are surprisingly easy and provided a solid approach which I have seen results after just 1 week. So rad!

    I highly recommend going through the whole thing!

    In surfing there is no equivalent to going to the driving range and hitting a bucket of balls; it’s very difficult to work on technique, you’re at the mercy of the ocean of what you can work on in any given session. This program helps make up for that fact; it lays out simple yet profound movements you can work on so you can perfect that muscle memory on land, removing the variability of water. That way once you’re out there you’ll be able to intuitively perform the correct motions. It’s a great program, great for progression, I highly recommend going through the whole thing!

    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!!

    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.

    great way to improve your surfing or start out with a good foundation

    After doing this program I was able to improve my surfing quite a bit. Cris really breaks down the movements and explained how to use your body movement in a way that I had never heard in any of the camps/classes I had taken before. I would highly recommend any beginners to get this so they can learn good technique from the start and not develop too many bad habits.

    I found the cardboard surfer program great for breaking out of the bad habits i’d made from just ‘trying’ to surf. Re learning how to get to my feet on a surfboard and working on the techniques on land has transformed my ‘successful’ wave count! Highly recommended. Thanks!

    The cardboard surfer improved my surfing

    The information Chris provides in this program is the best and enlightening I ever found on the internet. After struggling with my pop up for years and never knowing exactly what went wrong, following the cardboard surfer improved my surfing and my knowledge of what I was doing wrong. I can recommend this program for every surfer, combine it with one of his other programs and be a better surfer. It won’t come easy though, you need to invest your time and practice a lot. But the result is magic,

    Just what I needed

    I have been a long time struggler with injury and mobility that had taken away a lot of my surfing ability. This program has introduced me to the technical aspect of surfing which I have never been exposed to before. I now have a different way of approaching my surfing which includes stretching, mobility work and surfing my cardboard around the house. It is immense help when you are shown through technique how to achieve what you have been aiming for. Reminded me of what frothing for waves is like….

    Awesome approach to improve your surfing!

    I am a high school teacher with two teenage boys who have picked up surfing during this Covid crisis. They are fearless and naturals.
    I just wanted to get to the line-up and surf some green waves with my boys. This app has everything in once place. It’s awesome.
    As a teacher I appreciate the methodical approach to surfing.
    I have the cardboard surfer and the surf athlete programs. Both are go at your own pace and designed to help me do what I enjoy, surfing with my boys.
    The cardboard surfer app is helping me learn the proper movements in a simple non judge mental way. I can practice at home as much as I want and following great videos and a simple piece of cardboard. Amazing!
    The surf athlete is helping my 49 year old body handles the pressures of surfing and more impotently morning t will help my overall health and wellness.
    I’m excited to be on this journey and so thankful for Surf Strength Coach!

    Great Programs for Anyone!

    I have been able to apply the lessons to my carve boarding and it feels like its helping, it makes pumping and turning feel more natural and easy to understand. Great programs for anyone that wants to improve their surf fitness, or anyone just looking for something different than hitting the gym and throwing some weights around. My wife doesn’t surf…at ALL…and she even loves the programs because the keep the workouts interesting and you can feel your body moving better after a few weeks of using them.

    Thanks so much Chris and Clayton for this program. It has opened my eyes and mind to all the things I have been doing wrong but also doing right. Every-time I’m in the water, I try to focus on a particular technique detailed in the cardboard surfer. It blows my mind sometimes when it just works with less effort than my pre-cardboard surfer days. I would recommend the cardboard surfer program to anyone who wants to improve their technique.

    I’m a complete beginner so wasn’t sure if this would be too advanced for me, but it’s been awesome. Rather than teaching myself poor technique then trying to correct it later, it makes so much more sense to try to get it right from the start. Even though some of the skills are beyond me at the moment, I love that I can come back to the drills as my surfing progresses.

    Top Notch

    As someone fairly new to surfing and being a landlocked surfer, the Cardboard Surf Program is perfect for maximising my time in the water. The program is straightforward to use and as long as you put the time in you’ll definitely see results from dry land practice to being in the water. What has changed my surfing and ongoing progression has been the ‘walk up’; no more ‘pop up’ no more ‘poo man’. Do yourself a favour, if you are relatively new to surfing or have been surfing a while and stuck on a plateau of progression, get this program, it will change the way you surf for the better. The Cardboard Surf Program – simply awesome, 7 stars!

    This program is great! really improved my awareness of efficient posture, movement of my body while surfing. Its been about 6 months since i’ve used the program, and the improvements are starting to become more natural. Old habits die hard they say. I’ve had to constantly check my body position, hand positions and the likes and have had fund doing it, because it shows in the way i move on the water. The program really helped me in understanding those small mistakes that make a huge difference. Cant wait for the surfskate program!

    It worked for me

    I have tried this a couple of times in the cold Atlantic waters off Northern Spain on slower 1.5m waves and it worked for me. I still mix it up with classic pop up though. I will try on faster and/or larger waves as soon as I can, probably off the coast of Cornwall. I also make my wife laugh as I slide about the living room on a piece of cardboard, so it is a win-win on the home front too.

    I’ve been surfing for two decades, and I have many bad habits built in that had stopped my progression for years. This program has helped me learn some critical details that will make me a better surfer, and it has shown me the way I can internalise and reinforce those movements, by repetition out of the water, where I can do them hundreds of times. I really think this program is pure gold for anyone interested in developing his surfing, from beginners to advanced surfers.

    If your new to surfing this program is a must

    I only recently started surfing at the ripe old age of 42!!!. At first I did all the usual searches on the internet and YouTube firstly on how to pop-up etc and then how to generate speed and turn etc. I watched all the videos over and over only to be left confused. Once I found the Cardboard Surfer program all that confusion was replaced with a well thought out plan that just made sense due to the way the body naturally moves. My surfing has improved so much over the last couple of months as I took the time to understand the movements and more importantly practiced them on a continual basis. This is a fantastic program that will improve your surfing no doubt.

    So stoked!

    I am so glad I purchased this program during the quarantine. Like most people, I thought my popup was pretty solid. After working through this program, the walk-up technique taught here has changed my surfing. I’m much quicker getting up on the wave, fluid, and efficient. My friends have noticed how much I’ve improved and asked me how I’ve gotten so smooth. I don’t hesitate to tell them it’s because of this program! The simple biomechanical principles that Chris and Clayton use in this program are no brainers; it makes total sense when they show you more efficient ways to move your body when surfing. If you’re looking to improve your surfing by starting at the foundation, this is it!

    Truly surf specific

    I’ve been on Chris’ programs since back before the app – shout out the Surf Mastery Podcast!
    I continue to enjoy the artfully put together programs mainly down to the fact that Chris takes methodologies and concepts from lots of different disciplines and distills it all down in to concise and simple yet challenging chunks. I only started surfing a few years ago and was looking from the outset to build good techniques, habits and surf specific physicality all of which Chris (and friends) deliver. Cheers mates!

    Hugely Informative

    Cardboard surfer is an outstanding way to improve posture and performance. So much information, even after 20+ years of surfing I was stunned by how much I learned, all of which flowed straight into the next surf. I am still integrating it, using it in dry land practice and in the water. Really solid piece of surfing education. Oh, if you are really wondering if it is worth it….think about how else you could spend a small amount of money to improve your surfing. Here you’ll get loads of lectures demonstrating proper body position, for almost every relevant move. These include exercises you’ll practice on your own cardboard surfer which translate 100% into the water. You’ll have them forever, so you can just keep working on it. Easily worth it.

    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!

    ‘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.

    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.

    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.

    Powerful Tool for Upgrading Surfing Technique

    Congratulations Chris Mills and all the staff of Surf Strengh Coach.

    I am an experienced surfer and an avid searcher for surfing tutorials to upgrade my style and technique.
    The Surf Strengh Coach is by far the most complete, detailed and comprehensive program I have ever come across . I bought several programs including the Surf Skate, the Perfect Pop Up, Surf Atlethe and the Body Weight Training. I’ve been trainning constantly I can say that me and my buddies have already noticed a big improvement in my surfing. I feel more loose, more fit, more aware and more confident than ever. I highly recommend the programs. They are highly effective and worth the price you pay. Differently than many other bullshit coaching programs I unfortunately acquired before I knew Surf Strengh Coach.

    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.

    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'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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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,

    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

    You are a rockstar!

    Hi Cris, I have a NASM certification but my flexibility is limited and I realized that during my first surf lesson and immediately bought a few of your products. They work. Your email speaks to me. I am just really getting into the programs. I have been doing some new things I learned in terms of flexibility and dude you are a rockstar. Great communicator, first class instruction. Well thought out. I can’t begin to compliment you enough and I wish we were neighbors, you are my kind of guy. So yes, I am in, all the way. Thank you for creating a system that is bringing joy to my life.

    This is the third program I’ve bought from Chris and it might be the best one yet. It really has tied in the work I’ve been doing on the other fitness programs and made me progress that much quicker. I highly recommend this grade A program for anyone that wants to feel results on land that will translate to results in the water. Yeeww

    So greatful for this stuff!

    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 !

    Thanks!

    This program is the best! It’s full of awesome strength, flexibility, mobility & recovery routines. It has changed everything for me, I wish somebody told me all of this in my 20s instead of my 40s!
    The app works great and everything is presented so well.

    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.

    Appreciate all the resources you offer, keep it up!

    "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.
