I want you to see this Full Surf-Stretching Routine from the program.

This is just one of MANY Routines found within the full program, all specifically designed to help you move into the positions and postures required for higher level surfing.

Compression is your ability to crouch into a barrel, lift the legs up for a floater, or slide your legs underneath you for a flawless pop up. This stretch routine is focused on your ability to be a spring, compress easily, and surf fluidly.

You’ll immediately see why Stretches for Surfers is the Ultimate Stretching & Flexibility program created specifically for surfers.

WHAT’S IN THE PROGRAM?

No Matter Your Starting Point, This Program Teaches You How To Improve & Restore Dynamic Flexibility… A Full Program Covering Every Joint, Every Muscle, Key Movement Areas, Full Body Movement Sequences, and Tissue Release to Help Eliminate Pain and Stiffness.

Fundamental Surf Stretches

These are the key stretches you need to know that target specific joints or muscle groups that are commonly tight and restrict fluid movement. 
After more than a decade as a trainer and surf coach, these are the key movements I have to teach surfers all the time. Discover how to isolate a tight hip, regain motion in your spine, and stretch a restricted shoulder. You’ll be using these stretches for the rest of your life.

Research-Based Tissue Release

With research based instruction, and a bit of anatomy insight, you can make leaps in bounds in your movement, joint health, and recovery on those surf trips. 
A tennis ball or a foam roller can do a lot of good, but only with these scientifically proven methods and protocols. One of the most important things you can take on a surf trip is a tennis ball, and you’ll learn exactly how to use it to release muscle, improve range of motion, and aid recovery.

Postural Improvement

What this really comes down to is hip and spine love. Too much time at a desk has quite possibly wrecked your posture and destroyed your flexibility. 
Inside the Paddling Archetype program you’ll learn key stretches and techniques to restore spine alignment, improve hip mobility, and discover how to eliminate tensions from too much time at a desk.

Hip Flexibility

Do you have tin-man hips, or hip joints that could dance the salsa? The hip joint is a center point of movement in surfing, and if your hips are locked up, your surfing will be stuck in the dreaded poo-man stance.
In many of the stretch routines and follow along programs you’ll learn the most critical and beneficial stretches to restore hip mobility and help to promote joint health and durability. Better moving hips allow for better surfing.

Improved Flexibility & Strength

As a surfer your goal is a well-moving body, but the critical aspect is if you can control your movement. This program creates “mobility”, which is far more important than “flexibility”.
Flexibility is passive, it’s uncontrolled, it’s weak. If someone pushes your shin to your face you have a lot of “passive” hamstring flexibility. But, if you can pull your own shin to your face using muscles, then you have “mobility”, controlled and strong ranges of motion. As a surfer, strength in movement is critical to durability. This program utilises techniques to create strength and improved range of motion, which is mobility, and this is far more important.

This is the Stuff that Every Surfer Should Work On!

Foundation Training

Do you have a spine? How about a set of hips? Do you surf?
Then you should know about Foundation Training (FT), and use Foundation Training.
Countless surfers have used aspects of FT to help eliminate back pain, strengthen their core, and improve overall performance.

A healthy spine is a happy life, and FT is a key component in maintaining a healthy, pain free, and durable spine.

Learn the fundamentals with this program and apply it to your life. Your back, and posture, will thank you.

PRE-SURF WARMUP ROUTINES

A few toe touches and an arm swing or two. Is that your warmup? Pretty lame….
Your body, and your surfing deserve better. In fact, if you’re older than 30, you NEED better.

Most surfers don’t warm up because they’re either embarrassed, or they have no clue what to do.

Being embarrassed, well, it’s time for you to grow up and not care what other ego-driven vain surfers think about your warmup. In fact, with these warmups you’ll learn in this program, they’ll be watching in an attempt to steal some moves.

If you don’t have a clue what you should do before a surf, that’s about to change.

You want to get to your feet on the first wave and feel quick, flexible, and dynamic. The set of warm up routines you get, targeting chill quick in the sand warmups, to heavy paddle out warmups, will have you feeling confident and capable.

With a few key movements, and specific attention to certain areas of the body, you’ll hop into the ocean feeling like a grom again. 

Dynamic Flow Routines

Fluid Strength, that’s what you truly want as a surfer. Supple power, and the ability to flow like water. Groovy!
You may have heard of the Surf Athlete Program, and if not, it’s only the most impressive surf training program ever! One of the most popular aspects of that program are the Dynamic Flow Routines. Think of these as moving yoga, with a focus on strength where it matters… the hips and core.

I want you to have these, and I want you to use them. These Dynamic Flow Routines alone have the power to revitalise your surfing and your body, and you’re getting these on top of the entire Stretches for Surfers program! If

I’ve spent too much time at a desk during the day, I make sure I use a Dynamic Flow Routine and immediately feel better, mobile, and alive!

HELP YOUR SURFING

Cris Mills

Performance Coach, Massage Therapist, CHEK Practitioner

My name is Cris Mills, I operate Surfstrengthcoach.com, and work with people that want to improve their health, movement, and performance, and it’s usually so they can surf better. On a daily basis I help people and surfers train from rehab to performance. I know what a surfer needs to do to keep themselves in the ocean, and have been spreading that information through my various work online.
Improving your surfing requires improving the foundations of movement and athleticism. Flexibility is a key part of that process. I wanted to give surfers an easy resource to improve their flexibility, help to eliminate pain, and simply move and feel better.

Surfing in pain sucks as well, and I’ve done it, and I’m sure most of you have as well. Surfers, athletes, people, we all need to work on body maintenance, and help keep ourselves out of pain. This program will help teach you how to do this.

I aim to change the way physical preparedness is dealt with for surfing, and combine everything I have learned, and continue to learn, to help improve surfers body so they can stay involved with the ocean.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Equipment do I need?
  • First off, you need your body. Grab that….
  • The rest of this program uses minimal equipment, but there are a few pieces that will allow you to get the most out of the program.
  • An inflatable exercise ball. Buy one. Cheap ones are 10$ or less. The best quality (AOK duraball or mediball) are around 100$. For some spine work, hip stretches, and a few other drills a ball is a nice thing to have.
  • A “superband”. If you have stiff hips I’d highly recommend you grab one of these higher density bands. If you google “superband resistance band” you’ll get many hits, with companies like Rogue, Spri, or Perform Better manufacturing these. You want a full circle band, no openings or handles. They’ll come in varying widths and resistance levels. You’ll want a 1.5inch or 4cm width, or even a bit bigger, up to 2.5inch or 6cm. Resistance levels will vary with companies, but as long as you get a band around those widths you’ll be good to go.
  • A foam roller. There is 1 movement that uses a meter long foam roller, but if you don’t have one, don’t sweat it, it’s not absolutely necessary. You can use a foam roller for tissue release, but I often use a peanut (see below).
  • Personally, I rarely use a foam roller and mostly use a “peanut”, which is two taped tennis balls. Simply tape them together, or put them in a sock and knot the end. Boom, you have a tennis ball peanut.
  • At times we’ll also use a single tennis ball, or for those that have done quite a lot of tissue work before, you may want to use a lacrosse ball, or ball that is more dense than tennis ball. A golf ball can do wonders for the bottom of the foot.
Can beginners do the program?
Absolutely, there are alternative and progressive movements for each level.
How is the program delivered to me?
This is a digital program intended to be downloaded to your mobile device so you always have it with you during your workouts. Once you join the Surf Athlete Training Program, you will receive access to the entire program. Download everything and it’s yours forever.
Why Is Equipment Required?
There are basic equipment requirements for this training program, but with these basic tools you'll be able to train effectively for years to come.  To train efficiently in the movement patterns that carry over to surfing, applied resistance is required.

    I signed up for your app, bought a stretching program and really took it to heart. It took a while, but slowly I became more flexible, was able to recover faster and ultimately was really catching waves. Not just a wave but 20-30 a day! I have you to thank for a big part of my success. I still use the techniques I learned to be better prepared for next winter. So, don’t quit, I’m sure middle aged men everywhere take your advice to heart.

    I signed up to your program in 2016 and bought various programs from them on.

    You programs have taught me more about my body than any other program, personal trainer or physiotherapist I have ever consulted.

    While I still use physiotherapists and other programs for rehabilitation, strength and movement I have utilised the knowledge I have learnt from SSC to be the basis for my consultations with these. I think my physio appreciates that I can explain what I’m trying to work and know what I’m having issues with. I have also explained some of the movements I learnt from you and they say keep doing it.

    What I would like to say is the noise (negative) about anything you do is probably a small percentage compared to the silent majority (like myself) who have benefited from your work.

    I will continue using your teachings and you have made my life better by being better physically as I’m sure many do.

    I recently had a massive uptick in work hours and have found I have way less time to get into the ocean. the stretching program has helped me to keep moving and regain and retain some flexibility especially through my lower back and hips.

    I love the full body stretching videos and have become master of the tennis ball release

    Man, you thought of everything, and what’s more, the sequence is so well-thought out. People can learn the physiology and the techniques to gain (or regain) proper range of motion and flexibility to slowly strengthen the joints and muscles.

    You are the master of surfing physiology. Your video instruction is so succinct. Fully explained, clearly demonstrated. Very impressive. Plus, you’re just a regular dude who loves the ocean and gives what he knows back to help the rest of us keep moving at a higher level. And you do it all with a genuine enthusiasm.

    Dude, your programs are sick. Here’s quick story;

    College athlete, 20 years later still lifting and running, good general shape. Stiff, immobile.
    Moved to Hawaii years ago and wanted to teach him to surf while I learned. Quickly realized P90x type lifting wasn’t gonna work.

    Dude, I’m more flexible than I have been in decades. And my second-grade son and I are surfing together at beautiful Hanalei Bay. Couldn’t have done this without you, brother. Y’all ever visit Kauai, shave ice on me.

    A bit of background:
    I am a 48-year-old surfing father of two keen grommets (11 and 9).
    Always been fit- have done ironmans, ultra marathons, etc.
    But the last year I started getting pains and twinges in my legs, and couldn’t run much.
    I had always done traditional stretches- straightforward and backward stuff.

    Since getting and following your program, the improvement in all physical aspects of my life has been amazing. Heaps of twisting and functional stretching and movement have been the key!

    I have zero pains or twinges in my body, I spring out of bed in the morning, and my surfing is still sharp.

    I did eight hours in the wave pool over three days, did five hours surfing last weekend, and am chasing waves every opportunity.

    I love your App and program. It’s super easy to use, workouts aren’t too long. Easy to follow, and the demo videos are great.

    So thank you, Cris! Keep up the great work you are doing. I wish you every success with it, and will continue to follow your programs. All the best mate!

    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.

    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,

    I’m blown away by the app, your knowledge, the exercises, and your holistic/applicable approach to this all. I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time. So so grateful that I found your stuff, and I can’t wait to enlist in your other modules, too. Very impressive man. I see you’re based in Bali. My wife and I took our honeymoon there, I miss it. Take care, and please keep the content, workouts, knowledge comin’. Phenomenal!

    I just wanted to thank you for the programs.. I am about 6 weeks into the stretches and am virtually pain free. Also, you can see from the pictures I’m improving in my flexibility, hands up and eyes and head focused to my target. Even at 59 years old it’s possible to regain my confidence.

    An in depth, well thought programme for surfers, water users and those looking to add versitility into their own workouts. Especially useful during the pandemic when water/gym access was restricted.

    Living in the middel of Germany so I`m as landlocked as you can be. Training on land (especially surf technique) is a need for me, if I want to make the most of my surftrips.

    I´ve been through the surftraining sucess and streches for surfers program, the carboard surfer and now member of the Ocean Sports Academy. I can say that all the programms and workoutplans are well designed and thought out. Working with The Surfstrength Coach had and still has a huge postive impact on my surfing and my overall health. It really take`s off the brakes.

    The older I get the more care I need for my body. This stretching helps to keep me surfing into my late 40,s and hopefully make surfing in my 50’s still enjoyable and less injuries.

    I’m a Physiotherapist who prescribes stretching programs to patients every day. This program has changed the the way I stretch and how I treat. Stretching under load and in multiple planes as Cris describes is significantly more effective than standard passive stretching.

    Stretches for surfers program is unreal. very informative and relative to surfers of all levels looking for a mobility and flexibility program to use. Easily done in the comfort of your home and a great way to wind down in the evening.

    Great system. Allowed me to work at my own pace and improve consistently over time. Cris’s delivery is powerful and he really teaches as well as guides you through, so you know instinctively what is best and when to use it. GET the program. Get all the programs – a no BS style and lots of back up advice to really get my body, mind and surfing to another level. Don’t hesitate! So much value here. One stoked old guy!!

    Good solid program that’s suitable for all levels. All movements/stretches broken down well to give a good understanding of application and benefits including progressions and regression for those that require it. Has improved my overall conditioning and range of motion, which has not only benefited my surfing but overall health and everyday life.

    Cris’s depth of knowledge in all areas of surfing is absolutely awesome. He always explains everything so well and how it can impact your surfing and there’s no sugar coating bull crap. I have been following Cris for years now and he only keep expanding on his repertoire.

    I live in the city, so if I want to surf, I need to drive at least 2-3 hrs, that means that I cant surf everyday, and just on weekends. Saying that, keep in shape during the week is key for a good performance. This program has been really useful to complement the lack of surf hours and avoid loosing endurance. Also, this program is not only about working out, but the complete mindset of surf, telling you things like ´why we have to do certain exercise to improve pop up or bottom turn, etc´, so you start thinking about your future movements for the next session while you´re working out. Thanks Cris.
