How Bad is Your Pop Up?

Is it setting you up to flow, or flailing in the whitewash?

Failed Pop Ups are incredibly frustrating, and ultimately limit your surfing. You don't have to fail and fumble with your takeoffs anymore. Think of how radically this could change your surfing.

Better Pop Ups = Better Waves.

    I absolutely love the pop up program. Cris’ instructional videos helped me realise and solve a problem with my ankle. Not only has this helped my pop up but also helped my turns as I now have full range of motion with that ankle again. I can’t thank him enough!

    Best technique instruction out there

    Chris F. (verified owner)

    They way Chris breaks down the pop-up technique is easily the best instruction I’ve seen – and I’ve watched a tonne of you tube’s on this. His is a different, and I think much better, way of working on the pop up. After only 3 weeks working on the technique I can feel the improvement in the water and am getting more wave time by sticking more pop-ups.

    Exactly what I hoped for!

    Scott M. (verified owner)

    Thanks for your help! As an athlete, I have learned how to make minor adjustments to my technique and routines that lead to huge improvements in my performance. Because surfing was always something I did on the side, I never invested time in learning some of these fundamental techniques. I always just kind of felt my way through things, well that hasn’t worked as well with surfing. This module has given me the head knowledge I needed to make huge improvements in my pop up. While I still have a ways to go to reach my goals, I am confident in this part of the puzzle. Thanks again!

What you get

This is the process of Pop Up technique, the skill, the strength, flexibility,  and practice to restoring your ability to pop up smoothly and fluidly, and to learn the perfect technique from the start.



This module will introduce you to the thought process of assessing, and correcting your pop up.
You will gain an understanding of what your body needs to be capable of in order to execute the pop up fluidly and repeatedly.
You also gain insight into different styles of pop ups, and why one style may suit your body type more than others.



This is the process of identifying your limitations. You may have one, or you may have multiple. You must get clear on what is limiting your movement. 
Joint limitation? Tight tissue? Poor Motor Control? Weakness?
After a thorough assessment process, you will become clear on what you need to work on, and the associated stretches, and joint mobilizations to correct weaknesses or limitations.



Phase 1 of training will last 3-4 weeks, with 2-4 training sessions per week.
Strengthen and Improve the Foundations of the Pop Up
The Pop Up is a "skill", yet nobody considers it until it goes wrong! A fluid and effortless pop up is a skilled movement pattern that requires optimal flexibility from the lower body, as well as adequate levels of strength.

In Phase 1 you will develop and improve these foundations for a fluid pop up, and refine the actual technique of a flawless pop up.



Phase 2 of training will last 3-4 weeks, with 2-4 training sessions per week.
You want your body to be better than what's "just necessary"...
In Phase 2 you will develop fluid strength and power that creates an effortless pop up. Not only will this phase of training dynamically carry over to all of your surfing, but it will cement your body's ability to pop up fluidly and quickly.

Your body will be physically capable of not only surfing, but also getting to your feet quickly and repeatedly.
