    Improve surfing technique out of the water

    The surf skate program is great and has helped me make a huge improvement on my surfing technique – which is why i bought a surf-skate in the first place. It has also helped me to get my partner and kids on to a surf-skate and immediately get them going and thinking about how they need to position themselves.
    For me it is mostly about getting as much surfing practice in as i can when i’m away from the water – for that it has worked a treat.

    A Great Teacher + Real Training + Great Platform

    Chris Mills has been focused on surf training for a long time, putting out great videos when there were none to be found anywhere. His approach is backed by workouts that really work and his teaching ensures that you can perform every action on your own and build at your own pace. Since he was first posting videos on YouTube, he has dedicated himself to these teaching and developed a great platform to manage and track your workouts, so you can progress towards great goals. I’ve used three of his programs now, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

    The surfskate program along with the cardboard one, has been a great tool to my surf improvement. Making me more aware about what I am doing wrong and, more importantly, providing the direction for how to improve. Keep it up Chris!

    Surfskate rocks

    I’ve used the surfskate videos to dial in my skating when I’m not able to surf. It’s a GREAT training tool and keeps you focused of using it for improving your surfing! Little things like the coffee cup trick and getting super low even though you don’t need to on a (surf)skateboard.

    I wish I’d have had this when I first started with my surfskate. Would’ve saved me a lot of time and some skin! But even if you’re already surfskating proficiently the program will still teach you something.

    The best program!

    I have a long history of training and racing at an elite level and through that have always sort to look after myself. I am now in my late 40s. I have surfed all my life. After retiring from my sport I have become increasingly passionate about surfing   
    I am really enjoying the program. I can feel the range of movement coming back in places I never knew I had lost it. 
    I have tried many different things to mostly help with improving my surfing and your program has been the best.

    Takes the guesswork out

    Really useful programme. Rather than trying to piece good form together from bits on youtube, this programme tells me exactly what I need to do, and I feel confident my progress will actually transfer over to the water. Great stuff.

    The best aha! Moments

    I’ve been surfing like 12 active years and I have stopped surfing constantly because Sweden doesn’t have the best conditions. (Ecuador vs Sweden) Anyways, I have learned surf skate from scratch and this program has given me the best outcome. Just small details can make huge difference and my confidence is growing when I’m surf skating thanks to the program and of course a couple other programs I have purchased. Now when the waves come I don’t feel rusted, stiff and thinking too much because I already tried that on land. Thank you Chris for your hard work and fun way to teach. 🤙🏻🏄🏽‍♀️

    A total game changer

    I think it would have been cool if someone told me to point my hips forward like 20 years ago. It’s a game changer!
