    Outsdanding

    I have learned more in 3 months with the Perfect Pop-up and Cardboard surf programs than in the last few years with random videos. The thought and progression built into there programs are intense and deep. Outstanding. Highly recommended

    The program that hooked me

    This is the program that really grabbed me. The content, the guests contributions and the flow are all right on point for a beginner like me. Fortunately we have a brand new skatepark in town with a comp on today. I didn’t expect to get into skateboarding thru this but thanks so much coz I love it. learning to skateboarding at 40 yo

    Bodyweight

    Improved my flexibility, and strength and made me respect and understand surfing better. You need to surf a lot to become an intermediate surfer. This program prepares your body to have the ability to do so

    This program is a great way to keep flexibile and your training focussed on surfing for those long periods that you cannot make it into the water.

    more than u expect

    yea there’s routines for u to follow but if u have time to invest in watching every single video and again just for giggles then u will have a wealth of knowledge u can share and put to ur own use. u need time and understanding to make the most of thus amazing resource to health and wellbeing

    worth every penny.

    all of cris’s programs are worth far more than you will pay. not an internet gimmick; there is a lot of very well informed value. you’d be lucky to pay a personal trainer 100x the same amount and get such carefully considered, thoughtful, intelligently tailored content.

    A real game changer

    More golden nuggets than a safe vault. The theories and practice have really helped unlock some bad habits (that I didn’t even realise I had) and helped progress my surfing. Putting into practice in the water had tangible results in first session. Totally recommended if you feel your surfing is plateauing or if you’re carrying come bad habits. Awesome

    Feel like a toddler that learned to run

    The pop up was always my weakest link in surfing. This coaching helped me more than any live instructor. I’m way faster to my feet and cruising down the line. Thanks surf strength coach!

    I'm so grateful

    I’m so grateful that it has made such a huge difference.
    I’m showing all of my novice mates and have used my own progress as an example in a mental health and well-being program I run. Happy to stay in touch because I really like your teaching style and your systems work for me (I’m a school principal).

    From stiff bodybuilding physique athlete to mobile developing surfer 🏄‍♀️"

    “I use a routine from Stretches for Surfers 2.0 every morning to start my day. I wouldn’t have it any other way, as my mobility and strength in various ranges of motion have improved significantly since I started.

    A lot of AHA moments!

    It’s very easy to find a lot of AHA moments since I’ve started the program 2 months ago.

    I’m a middle-aged overweight man (49) that just started to try to surf 1 year ago. The first step was to learn to popup. Prior to the program, my popup was very ugly involving my knee and a lot of contortions. Now I’m not sure it is pretty, but at least it is quick and effortless. I can report after a week in Salvador that I can finally popup efficiently and quick enough to actually surf a green wave. Now I need to learn to balance and turn 🙂

    Also, the exercise helps a lot to gain the strength and flexibility necessary. I’ve seen a great improvement since I started.

    Superb course!

    Superb course and love how there’s alot of different topics included. I could never understand why surfskate I found easy yet as soon as I got on a surfboard I’d struggle with movements – turns out my stance changed completely yet I would never have realized without this course. For me a game changer.

    I can’t tell you enough how this program has made me a more of a confident surfer and better yet, I’m able to understand and push maneuvers that I thought were never possible. I highly recommend this to any level surfer out there!

    This is the course to buy if you want to start understanding surfing

    I have a background of years of martial arts training.
    When we don’t know what we are doing, no matter how much we train, we will keep looking like a goof.
    A bad coach, will make you feel it is your fault. A good coach, will share with you the foundations and give you drills.
    After you learn and practice it, it will seem so simple, sometimes you don’t value it. Not me, I know the value of the coach who makes your life simple. This course will make surf simpler to you. Value it 😉

    I'm Stronger and Healthier!

    I really think that the perfect pop up is helping me
    not only with my pop up, with my strength and flexibility, with my mind too. I´m more happy taking more waves,
    being more healthy and stronger.

    Estoy realizando el programa de surf atletas y aunque tan solo vaya por la tercera semana de la fase uno, me ha sido de gran ayuda la recuperación de mis sesiones de surf, siempre tenia la espalda cargada con muchas contracturas y el dia de recuperación ha sido un antes y un después, solo por eso ha merecido la pena.

    Gracias Cris!!!

MEET THE GUY WHO’S TRYING TO
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.
