    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.

    first time in 25 years of surfing that I've learned something new about popups

    my popup has always been a little slow and a little sloppy, and my stance has had a bit of the old “poo” to it. despite working with occasional teachers, they’ve never really improved. this popup course actually taught me some stuff that I could use that made a real difference. and taught it in a casual but focussed style. super helpful, great course, good value (I mean, how much is having a good popup and stance worth to you? a lot, right???)

    I just want to say thanks! It is my first week of perfect por pop up training. I didn’t finish my week and yesterday had the first best ever waves session of my life! I’m a beginner and was taking 0’7/1 meter super easy, I didn’t have to think in the pop up and was concentrated in better posture and ride on the wave. So, big thanks!! My body is responding very fast to your training, I can’t imagine when I finish the third week.

    Again: Gamechanger

    I sure was sceptical at beginning: I can surf and have not only learned it as an autodidact, but have also been taught by good coaches (although thats a while ago now). I’ve also been looking for a routine for some time now, to get through the dry season as a landlocked surfer without losing too much strength. Swimming helps, but the popup needs more than that. I was all the more surprised by the in depth description of the walkup, big triangle to small triangle and the application on the shortboard. I was able to find errors in myself and think I can address them specifically with the programme. I think it is essential that the exercises place a lot of emphasis on mobility, flexibility and core strength. Some of the theory units seem to be a bit redundant; in my opinion, less would be more, especially when time is short. For the training, active stretching (PNF) would certainly be a good addition to foam rolling. Even if there are things to improve, the programme is worth every penny. For beginners and advanced users, for building techniques, for correction on movements, for mobilization, for surfstance and movement, for power and strenght. For better surfing.

    I am in week four of the six week pop-up program. I have gone from thinking I will never be able to surf to now consistently popping up on the white wash and smaller green waves. This program is so comprehensive and at almost 52 it is helping me realise a lifelong dream and something that I actually had given up on. It is all about holistic fitness and strength and confidence which this program provides practical and grounding strategies in. I love it

    Don’t Skip the Basics

    Thought I’d be plowing through some of Cris’s fundamental material and getting right to the advanced stuff. Twenty minutes into the Perfect Pop up Program I paused and dug up my favorite photos I had of myself surfing and, sure enough, there in the photos were some of the same bad habits that so many surfers get stuck on. How embarrassing! I’m glad I took the time to go through this material and clean up the slop.

    First of all the app and user interface is top notch. But more importantly the content is clear, insightful and helpful. Even before the physical improvements hit me, the conceptual teaching had me stoked and surprised I hadn’t heard it explained so well, even though I’ve listened to lots of other people try to explain the simplicity of a good pop-up. The exercises are on point and produce near instant results. This was my first program but won’t be my last.

    Exceptional Value

    Always interesting to me how much bad advice, coaching of teaching can damage progress, in some cases for years. That has certainly been my experience. So, if you’re in the same boat, and want to reverse that experience relatively quickly, then this would be a great course. Dare I say in this age of over used hyperbole – exceptional.

    You’ll need to do the work, but if you do that I would guarantee progress. I’m early 50s, a relative newcomer to surfing and bad coaching has hampered my progress, not to mention enjoyment. This Pop Up course is a refreshing experience in a sea of bad advice. Face it, if you can’t pop up well, then you’re not going far. Give yourself a treat.

    Great course Cris.

    His passion for educating in the field of human health, performance, athleticism and specifically in surfing is inspiring.
    The creativity he implement in the content influences to “adapt and overcome” during challenging times in order to maintain a healthy routine despite the circumstances and the daily stress.

    Pop Up Program

    After turning 70 and going through literally years of abuse and injuries including 3 broken necks ( crushed C 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7), 2 herniated discs (L4, 5), a double inguinal hernia surgery, and prostate cancer resulting in a radical prostatectomy 2 years ago, I had to retire from being a boat captain and scuba instructor. Now I am trying to get back surfing which I have been doing my whole life. The injuries have cut or removed all of my core strength. Now with this pop up program, I am getting it back slowly. It is a painful, frustrating process but there is significant progress. 2 1/2 weeks into the 6 week program I had a session with nearly normal pop ups and a definitive progress towards what could be considered a “normal” pop up. Thank you Chris and your crew for helping this old surf rat to get back to the lineup! My appreciation is beyond words! Much Aloha!!

    Phenomenal program- Great instructor

    I purchased the surf strength program and I’m very happy with my decision. The passion of Cris to pass along his knowledge and try and improve all aspects of your surfing in and out of the water is really amazing. I was hesitant because of the nature of a one size fits all training program seems difficult but the way Cris walks you through the movements and acknowledges personal limitations had me confident to try and perfect these movements and get the most out of my workouts. There’s a tremendous amount of content and it’s really exciting to try out new programs and new movements and feeling my flexibility, rotations, and other movements improve daily has me feeling better physically and mentally. My favorite thing in the training program for body weight is in the intro when Cris outlines that “hey you have a life and other things pop up and that Surfing always takes priority to the training”, it took out the rigidity you see from most programs and the feeling that you are getting behind. I’m still working through all of the many videos but I am seeing improvement in my surf and just paying attention to different things in the water (without overthinking) I’ve found even more enjoyment in the ocean.

    Thanks for all your insight and guidance

    Aloha,

    You probably need it...so just get it.

    I’ve been wanting to fix my bad surfing habits for quite some time, but never knew where to start. Picked up the Perfect Pop Up program in an effort to change what should have been changed long ago and I couldn’t be happier. Cris takes the time to fully explain everything in great detail, which for me is key….from joint specific stretches, to how your brain gets rewired and the fitness required in order to fix your bad habits. I’m still working on changing my bad habits but there’s definitely an improvement and I credit this program for it.

    As an old surfer from DURBAN, South Africa, I’ve been living in the UK for the past 20 years not surfing…no much surf & the sea is freezing. But in Bristol, we now have the Wave.com wave pool…and I saw my arse there trying to surf for the first time in years.

    Dream of a Lifetime

    I’m a fifty-one year old novice surfer. I’ve been stuck at novice since I was sixteen. I am now 220 pounds and six foot three and with the help of Surf Strength Coach, I finally feel like I am positioned to move to the next level. I work out a lot, but I have not been working on the right things. I knew core was important so as the pandemic raged on I bought a weight bench and a chin up bar and went to town. My core is stronger than ever, but my mobility is, ahem, rough. With the Perfect Pop Up sessions, I learned where I need to focus, and where I can make the biggest gains in the water and on the board. Now if I didn’t have to wait so long to go surf!

    My wife and I love the program!

    Firstly I have been following you for years since I was a student at uni studying physio. You are doing such a great job helping surfers get fit and perform better in and out of the water.

    Chris, I purchased your pop up program for my wife for Christmas after a colleague of mine John Moore recommended it to me. We jumped onto the program soon after purchase and were really impressed by it but with two kids under 2, my wife decided to review it when she had more time (and the waves became a little smaller here on the sunny coast). We were about to start it up again.

    I always got problems with the pop up being too slow. I know i have strenght issues, but also the technical part. This program was the first one to help me realize where it was my technical issue by myself (going a little bit for the side too much instead of going front). Already trying to test it in water and it’s improving. Keeping up with the strenght but that one is also covered at the progran, and it needs a bit of time.

    Stoked that this program was recommended to me!

    I started watching Surf Strength Coach videos online and was super stoked to come across the pop-up program. I am very new to surfing and found some frustration with ‘pop ups’ , being an athletic person and not getting it quickly. After reviewing videos, I have learned SO much about things that I was missing and doing incorrectly. I love how in his videos, it is called ‘the walk up’. That language in itself, puts less pressure on this idea of a quick snap up and encourages me to trust the process and to be kinder to myself. The ankle and hip mobility exercises are super helpful too! I have had limited range of motion in my ankle due to a previous injury. So I have bee working away at trying to improve this. I am currently recovering from a sprained ankle and am stoked to get back to my program. Did I also mention that I love your sense of humor Cris ?!! So good! Many thanks 🙂

    Pop up program delivers

    Been learning to surf for four years now. Starting at the ripe age 50 years old. My biggest wall was my pop up. More that I couldn’t get my front foot forward enough. Long story short my pop up was not engaging and my frustration was. I researched as much as I could find had a lesson and advice but it wasn’t until I jumped in and thought let’s give this surf strength coach dude a go. Hands down best investment for me to date that has helped with my pop up and surfing. Now this is just the pop up program. So now I’m seriously looking into Chris’ other programs. Well explained lessons. Very informative on techniques and tips and just as informative on the human form and required motor mechanics to increase your wave count. Following the pop up program (less than 2 weeks I might add) has changed everything. 10 out of 10. My surf crew noticed after 2 sessions. Thanks Chris

    Perfect Popup

    I got involved with the perfect pop up programme after seriously relating to Cris’s videos on YouTube.

    The info, assessments, training and mobilisation work is really helping me unlock those years of stiffness from sitting down. Breaking down the pop up into its base movements so you can relearn has been a game changer, and as soon as we get some swell in the U.K. I can’t wait to see how this helps my surfing.

    Excellent training program

    I recently completed the surf athlete program, which was amazing. The amount of content in there is crazy. So after that I thought I’d give the perfect pop up a go, I must say I was a little sceptical about it at first but once I dived into the program it changed the way I looked at my own pop and really mad me think about the positioning of my body. It was a big learning curve for me but it has definitely help my surfing as well as my general fitness and mobility. I’m now combining the perfect pop up with the surf athlete program and I feel they work together really.
    Weather you surf or not there’s something for everyone in Chris’s programs, they are well structured with more then enough information even for beginners.

    Beginner Surfer Review

    This product has been so incredibly useful in so many ways. I started off trying to teach myself how to surf via YouTube videos, however a lot of the time bits and pieces were left out to fully understand the pop up motion. So it was always hard for me to progress because I didn’t have anyone to tell me the small but critical techniques I was missing; one of the biggest being the Oreo biscuit technique. But getting this program has improved my understanding exponentially and multiplied my experience in the water tenfold. Based off teaching myself via YouTube, I had surfed 7 days with as short board and didn’t ride one green wave, but after the purchase of the program and even following it for half as long as was recommended, I was able to ride my first green wave on short board only a few days into surfing, not to mention the countless times I caught waves via the Oreo biscuit technique.

    So the program overall has increased my understanding of surfing to a level much higher than I could have gotten out of YouTube!!

    Catch more waves!

    For context, I\’m a 47 year old first time newbie surfer. I\’m reasonably fit with above average mobility for my age from several years of (trying) learning to hand balance and general bodyweight movement stuff. So focusing on motor patterns and skill development is where I\’m happy and this course delivers! As the movement pattern for the long board walk up becomes more natural, it\’s getting quicker and I can now focus much more consciously on weight distribution in my feet for drive, hip orientation & hand position. I can also say that if you don\’t have the requisite mobility and strength to make your pop up easy and pretty, the drills and training included here will definitely help you get there. I say that because these are exactly the type of exercises and mobility drills that have taken me from stiff as a plank to pop up flexible! Great stuff.

I think half the problem was in my head (plus tight hamstrings!) but I needed something to give me focus.

    I was struggling with my pop-up due to previous bad habits and no people to help me to improve. As I started the pop-up program, everything was clear to me. I’ve been doing this all wrong! I was trying to jump (which led me to put my foot wrongly at the same time, making the board unstable) instead of walking and making sure I always have the triangle support at any time. Will continue with the strength program and the results can already be seen!

    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.

    I’m a 51 year old trying to work out why I never learnt to surf properly earlier in my life and using everything available to start he journey now. I truly believe Cris’s programme is the answer. I only discovered Cris’s website about a month ago but was really impressed with how comprehensive the content is. He has amalgamated a wealth of skills, information and techniques to produce videos that appear to cover every possible aspect of learning to surf. Having spent the past 20 years dabbling in yoga, pilates, and cross training I love the way Cris has distilled out surf specific exercises for the most effective progression. I’m three weeks in to the Perfect Pop Up and loving it. Already seeing increases in strength and slow improvments in mobility. I have an arthritic hip with FAI, a topic Cris addresses directly in his hip mobility videos. The exercises give me relief from discomfort and now I’m doing them most days. The pop up and stance drills really work too. Last couple of waves I caught I found I had both hands forward automatically and was already lowering my stance. I love learning new skills and this coaching is proving to be super effective for me and a ton of fun.

    Signed up as I wanted to smooth out my pop-up, get more consistent and feel in more control. I can honestly say I could FEEL the difference after just one week. More waves, more speed, more control, and most importantly, more FUN! The technical advice is illuminating, and the assessments have helped me pin point the areas to focus on. Total game changer for me and has allowed me to focus on building on this and looking forward to further progress my surfing. I guess a good pop-up is more likely to set you up for a good wave!!!

    One week into this program and that is what someone asked me on the beach yesterday. I haven’t nearly mastered the technique and have the worst take off in the world. But after one week mainly focusing on getting the body flexible I immediately felt the difference in my surfing, especially in the speed of my take off on a punchy beachy. The tissue and band work along with the stretching definitely gets you nice and loose to move a lot quicker. Stoked so far and amped to keep going. Cheers Cris and team

    Walk up! It is the greatest advice I have ever received! I stopped jumping like a monkey on my board, feeling embarrassed by my own style.
    Everything starts to be more fluid. As I pop up I get more speed.
    I’m a lower intermediate surfer, living in the Swiss alps, practicing one/two day per week (yes: now we can surf also in Switzerland having a brand new surf garden in Sion!!)
    I was stuck! I was trying to do some progress, but I was late on my take-off, and too much in a snowboard/side position.
    With your advice, everything is getting more natural. I’m doing half the effort, and I don’t feel any more like a sort of robokop!
    I’ll keep on training and practicing the exercises on a daily basis, but for the moment I have to say that your method is amazing!!

    Trust the process!

    This program is worth way more than what it sells for. BUT to get the most of out it, you will need to adjust your behavior and expectations a bit, especially if you have been surfing for a while. After 15 years of doing it wrong, I had some seriously engrained bad habits to undo, but I stuck it out and I am really glad I did. First, don’t expect that you will magically nail the perfect pop up the next time in the water after following the program for a couple of weeks. You might, but that is not a reasonable expectation. Prior to following the program, on a shortboard, my pop ups took a lot of energy and would get me in a decent posture to surf about 30% of the time. I hated training for them on land. I was stuck. This program unstuck me. My pop ups on a longboard improved very quickly after starting the program, but I still struggled on the shortboard. But at least, I now actually enjoyed training for it, and that helped a lot. I just stuck with the program and eventually everything started coming together on the water. So, be reasonable in what you expect and be patient. As Cris says: trust the process. As to behavior, if you struggle following the program, try to approach this a little different. At first, I was trying to follow the program to the letter. But that did not work for me. At all. it would take me an hour to get in my workout clothes, do the exercises for the day, shower. That was just taking too long. I would end up doing it once a week at best. But I could see how each exercise fit in and how combined they could make a difference. So I just started doing what I felt like doing whenever I had a few minutes: 10 minutes for lunch? squeeze in a set of Mobility and Flexibility. 20 minutes free before dinner? squeeze in 2 set of strengths. After 2 weeks of doing it this way, I could already see a big difference. Now I do the mobility & flexibility exercises at least once a day, either as part of a warm up for surfing or for helping me wake up, or for stretching after a long day. And yes that includes 10 or so reps of pop ups. and I enjoy doing them. This program has not only improved my surfing and my enjoyment of it but it has improves my fitness overall. So stop fretting and reading reviews, just get it. It’s worth every penny.

    It is a dope program!

    Thank you for everything you are putting out.  Been surfing for 20 years and absolutely sucked.  Last year (pre-pandemic) I decided to get my shit together and really focus on it, so I bought your program.  I’ve always been a runner and weightlifter but that never translated well into the water.  After a solid year of doing your program and getting out in the water every chance, I could get I’ve improved significantly so thank you!
    Also, I was watching when you were taking questions and answering them, and something you said really stuck with me.  Someone asked what to do to get over the “fear” of dropping in on bigger waves and you said something along the lines of “You just need to keep taking a pounding until you get used to it.”  So I paddled out into surf that was a little above my abilities that I normally wouldn’t (about 6 feet) and totally got worked for about 2 hours.  Didn’t catch a damn thing.  But got way more comfortable with being uncomfortable.  Between that and the breathing exercises, I noticed the other day that my mentality had switched from “Please don’t eat shit” to “Paddle paddle paddle I’m going to catch this”.
    Anyway, keep doing what you’re doing. It is a dope program!

    Walk this way!

    Hey Cris,
    I’ve been away with work for couple of wks and had that time to increase my flexibility and follow your training. Have targeted the areas I’m needing some tissue work on after watching your vids showing what to look out for – mainly the hips and ankles for me. Plus keeping those stretch routines up and swimming a lot while I can’t get near any waves.

    Just spent the past 3 days out in fun size surf back home and practicing the walk up. Mate, some great moments. Really feels good, my fitness has rocketed. Solid 2hr sessions. Taking time to stretch down when I get in after a refuel. My osteoarthritis has subsided since last year and things are falling into place.

    I know i see people’s reviews on sites and they give it the ‘this program is amazing wow, can’t thank you enough’ but I honestly believe what you’re offering to people is the way to go to improve the individual’s fitness, surfing and mobility health. I would’ve probably rejoined the gym n done the old faithful routine again if Covid hadn’t made me think twice. This is some solid legit training. So, ‘mate, wow. Can’t thank you enough!’
    Peace!

I’d consider myself hovering in the lower percentile of the advanced range but towards the end of my sessions I’d feel like an absolute kook because my hips would lock up when I’d get cold and fatigued. I’ve been battling tight hips/hip impingement for many years now and thought I had it under control except for when I’d get stiff and cold in the lineup and go for my pop up – I could hardly get my front foot under me with out intense pain in my front hip, which usually resulted in a fall. After watching this program I realized the problem was that my glutes/hamstrings were super tight and knotted up which prevented hip flexion. Before I only focused on loosening up my hip flexors but I had it all wrong. I have only had this program for a little over a month now and have noticed significant improvement in not only my hips but also my technique. I’ve always had a similar form as Cris calls “the walk-up” but I never practiced it on land and struggled on my back hand because sometimes (on hollow racing beach breaks) my torso would be facing the beach rather than down the line. If you’re self motivated and open for change, then you will like Cris’ programs. This is not for the person that wants a quick fix and forget about it. Thanks Cris for making this information readily available to guys like me who don’t have the time or money for a personal coach or trainer.

    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.

    Hey Cris, just wanted to say thank you. Your encouragement in one of your videos seems to have been the motivation that got me to be serious about losing weight and I have lost 20 lbs (215 to 195). Turns out EVERYTHING (with the possible exception of duck diving) in surfing is easier with less weight: paddling, generating speed, popping up…. Thanks man. I am on my way down to a surf camp in Costa Rica in a couple of weeks in a much better way than I was a few months ago. Keep doing what you are doing …. you are helping people like me.

    You are a real deal!

    Thank you for your help with my surf training. I decided to learn to surf three years ago at age 50. I found your videos on YouTube and they were the only ones with solid science-based information all of which were completely in tune with what I believed. The thing that was a game-changer for me was the perfect pop-up. You gave so many different examples but they all lead to the same place. When I got to my Surf With Amigas retreat in southern Costa Rica a lot of the girls were struggling with their pop up’s. For the first time, I was not one of them. My pop-ups were so fluid and smooth it was hard to believe that after years it was one of the things I was doing well. I actually was able to give the girls some tips I had learned from you I also recommended you and the course to a few of the girls there. As a CSCS who is a Myofascial release therapist assured them that you were the real deal. I told them how impressed I was by your cautions and advice as to when to see a healthcare practitioner. I really just wanted to thank you for your help. I love your positivity and the supportive vibe you have. I have really enjoyed watching your videos progress and this website is totally rad. Keep sending all the healthy positive vibrations out there. It makes a huge difference and wanted to let you know how much I have appreciated it. Peace and love my friend.

    Hey Cris, I really enjoy your program, this has been perfect. I really like that each exercise/stretch has its own video with instructions on form. To be honest, I had been using the free content on your app for a few months, and wasnt really sure that paying for a program would be worthwhile, since you have so much rad free content on the app! But I’m really glad I did. I’m stoked to progress through each of the phases and look forward to seeing the results when I get to surf (hopefully sooner than later).

I use your program for flexibility run through ensuring I roll out my muscles and move my joints properly along with various workouts of his for home workouts when I can’t leave the house. I also do yoga for night time/morning time stretch and go to the gym 2-3 times a week. All in moderation is my belief, don’t go pump iron like a body builder and get massive, no harm in getting a solid muscle mass to remain strong and healthy.

    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,

    I have learned so much from your training videos that I have seen on Youtube. I am trying to speed up my pop up. I saw better surfers at my local break doing the both feet landing on the board at once type of pop up. At that point I was trying to copy them and it really screwed me up. I am so happy because your video confirms that I have been on the right track all along. All of the other details that enable a person to have the proper mobility really make a difference. I had been doing some of those exercises because of instructions that I got from your videos on Youtube. This course has it all in one place and I am so grateful for that. Thank you for being so meticulous in your presentation.

    Enjoyed Perfect Pop Up!

    Enjoyed perfect pop up. The concept of using my left knee as a lever to get my right foot first on the stomp pad and then walking up was revolutionary. I learned in the 60s as a long boarder and as I have transitioned to shorter and shorter boards I was not getting good results jumping to my feet, which were often in the wrong place. Now getting to my feet smoothly on a 6’0″ Pyzel almost all of the time. Kudos!

    thanks for putting out an amazing program

    I’m a 54-year-old surfer living in San Francisco. Started when I was 14, lived on the North Shore of Oahu for three seasons and was pretty good in my 20s and early 30s before I had to start a career. I found it very difficult to get back into surfing after a number of years out of the water and struggled getting up especially when the water dropped under 55° in the winter. With boots and tight flexibility I found myself falling all over the place. Your pop up segment has helped me overcome my cold water issues as I’m up sooner with focused drive. Super Duper helpful in so many ways. Dryland walk up with two beers and dippi! thanks for putting out an amazing program. I’m sure many many of others have benefited.

    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.

    Your program has literally saved my surfing. I’m not there yet, but close. The pop up funk was ruining any chance at fun, and whenever I got stuck in a downward dog(WTFI) I was so disgusted I felt like walking away altogether! But I’ve been taking international trips for years, and I will never let that go, even when I get to the age when supping is the only option. After working on the technique, one moment of clarity was seeing how key hip mobility is to keeping it fluid. I think I still have the core strength and reasonable flexibility, so shedding the lbs will be huge. Practicing your method while getting stronger, lighter and more flexible will lead to a great outcome!

    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.

    This program deserves a long review!

    Your program has literally saved my surfing. I’m not there yet, but close. The pop up funk was ruining any chance at fun, and whenever I got stuck in a downward dog(WTF!) I was so disgusted I felt like walking away altogether! But I’ve been taking international trips for years, and I will never let that go, even when I get to the age when supping is the only option. I’ve been in the water with 200lb guys supping on 7’10s, and ripping. So the future looks bright!

    But until then, I’ll surf. The fluid walk up to pop up is coming around quickly, and I can feel how the quicker push off the knees is an extension of the slower version. After working on the technique, one moment of clarity was seeing how key hip mobility is to keeping it fluid. I think I still have the core strength and reasonable flexibility, so shedding the lbs will be huge. Practicing your method while getting stronger, lighter and more flexible will lead to a great outcome! I’ve been 153-55 since high school and am now at 166. I’ve always believed that since we lose muscle mass as we age, we should get lighter as we get older(I’m now 66) not heavier. Of course, it’s the opposite for everyone I know. So my hunch is I should be ~150 max. That will go a LONG way to improving the quick get-up. Imagine popping up with a 15lb dumb bell on the small of your back!

    Another ah-hah moment was SO simple and seemingly obvious – look down the line! I went to Nicaragua 6 yrs ago, and got my lunch handed to me. Mostly because I seldom surf beach breaks, but now in hindsight I realize I was looking straight down a seriously sucking face, and not looking where I should be going! Even surfing my home break now, when I focus down the line the waves look so much softer it feels like I have more time to get up fluidly.

    So pumped!

    Just did my first phase 2 workout. Pumped. Really liked the changes in the dynamic flow and the step up in the exercises. Anyway, I got in the water during hurricane Delta and there was one wave in particular that I caught, and thought: “shoot, too late, not going to make this one” but i popped up and planted my feet and was good to go. I thought, man, even after phase 1, my balance is way better out here. So thanks for putting together a solid program. I’m excited to see where it takes me.

    A note to say how much and why your program is meaning so much to me.

    I’m 58 years old tomorrow. 1 year ago I was just about to finish up a 6 month surf trip with my youngest son and just honestly realised that the one thing in my life that had always been pure joy – surfing!

    Then COVID, locked down on return to France, no surf, and remote working – ouch! But your program gave a way out. OK so I couldn’t surf, but I can get my old bones working like never before. I’m not ready to give up on my short board damn it!.

    I got stuck into the 12 week program and then couldn’t give it up. From an older perspective the results are actually amplified – and I’ve stayed seriously fit all my life. But the mix of workouts + muscle and joint care have really made a difference.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    I am a 46 year old intermediate surfer, who was struggling with my pop up and general mobility. I started my journey with Cris at Surf Strength Coach when I came across his “Fix your pop up” program. This changed my surfing and opened my eyes to a lot of things that I had been doing wrong for years. I now subscribe to Cardboard Surfer, Surf Athlete, Stretches for Surfers and Fix my Pop Up. I can’t recommend these programs enough. The stretching, the techniques and the exercises are so beneficial, and all taught/ explained in a simple way that is easy to get your head around. Cris and his Surf Strength programs have changed the way I look at surfing, and I have improved out of sight.

    A magical program!

    Got out for my first surf today since checking out your Pop up videos. All the tips you cover in those videos are so good and different to what I’ve had going on in my head all these years! Creating stability from pelvis pressed onto board, legs squeezed together and arching spine while paddling in, instead of slumping them down and forward, made so much difference today and the walk up is magic! Thanks heaps!

    Perfect pop up program has been revolutionary

    The best things I’ve learned from your programs are that all of the movements you teach should be natural movements that our bodies should already know how to do. When I commit to training and get these new movements into my range of motion I notice that I’m able to move more freely. Another great moment has come from learning when to stop training if something doesn’t feel right and that “pain is not gain”! Although I get a great workout, I always feel more charged up afterwards and warmed up rather than defeated and needing a day of rest.

    I really like the way Cris breaks things down to first principles like skills and movements and build it up from there. Most of the other YouTube ‘experts’ just show a video of them on a wave or on a surf skate or whatever, without giving you the core principle or movement to work on and build up to achieve a level of skill. The walk up to pop up is a great example.

    Better than anything else online

    I watched almost every ‘pop-up’ up video I could find online and was still not getting my pop-up to click. There is NOTHING I have seen online that describes the theory of the pop-up like Chris does. My improvements were instant and it’s really accelerated my surfing.

    As for the strength & conditioning component, I worked as an S&C coach for BJJ for several years and can speak from a place of experience that Chris REALLY KNOWS HIS SHIT!

    His knowledge is spot on and his delivery is excellent. I cannot recommend this program enough. Buy it, use it, catch more waves

    The videos are great and my pop up has improved significantly. I had surgery three months ago to help with an ankle impingement and have been following your program for about a month now. I was at San Onofre last week and had the best day I’ve ever had. I caught probably 10 waves and had a blast. Hopefully I can improve enough to start using a short board down the road.

    Absolutely love it

    I have been trying to become a better surfer for many years. I chose the pop up program because I could recognise in myself that I had major limitations that prevented me from improving my skill, ability and enjoyment of surfing any further. I absolutely recommend the 6-week program to everyone even if you don’t surf because what I found when completing the program was a better overall health and movement which improved my surfing, running and enjoyment of everyday life. The lastest update is even better than the first which I loved. It’s not just a token update but a deliberate action by Cris to improve advice, use new language (of which thinking of it as a walk up has really helped me) along with intervention of detailed breakdown of professional surfer pop-ups. I really recommend the program and I plan to purchase others to get even more growth.

    Stop watching endless YouTube popup videos and buy this

    I have been surfing for a long time but, as I have gotten older, my popups were getting worse. For months I felt like I watched every YouTube video I could find about popups – specifically shortboard (off the knees) popups. To be clear, I could (and still can) do an “explosive pop” to land on both of my feet. But I noticed that when I was in the water, I was missing too many good waves from a popup that didn’t land my feet in just the right places. I was looking for a more consistent popup because doing all the work to paddle into a position to catch a good wave and blowing it SUCKS.

    When I first started using this program, I was kind of unsure/bummed out because it seemed like he was just teaching the old “chicken wing” method. If you are worried about that, don’t stress. As I kept following the program I realized that the “walk up to popup” program is designed to make popups way smoother/easier (meaning less blown opportunities to ride) and that the “chicken wing” naturally progresses to a non-chicken-wing popup as you add speed.

    Solid program with all of the strength and mobility training required to help anyone popup effectively.

    Pop up really helped

    Hard to believe after almost 30 years of surfing I needed to relearn how to get it up but it’s true. Aging and osteo arthritis have taken their toll and after a couple of cold winter months out the water I struggle to stand up. Embarrassing to say the least… My cousin turned me on to Chris’ videos and my wife scored me the series for Christmas and after a month of getting in to and using the series my pop up is back! Chris’ simple and logical stretching concepts have helped and now I’m hooked and will be using it for overall body health and limberness. Thx Chris!

    If you are having even the slightest pop up issue-- this course is for you!!

    Amazing! Everything is broken down step by step. Chris shows you the best way to do something and the best way to practice it…

    After a couple of months of me being really busy at work, I never did much surfing. When I got back to the water I was popping up like a complete beginner tool… except I’m not a beginner at all so it was even worse. I didn’t even know exactly what was the problem. Was my core not strong enough, was my technique off- I had no idea. Anyway, within 3 lessons my pop up was 100% better. I’m the type of surfer that likes to make late/ steep takeoffs and I even learned a takeoff technique with the program that helps me guarantee my back foot is in the right position in those crazy, critical moments.

    Chris really puts a lot into his coaching. He cares and he wants you to succeed. He almost sends you too much information :). If you are serious about your surfing in any way, this entire program is the one-stop-shop for technique and fitness/ body issues.

    Progressed my surfing

    I was struggling with my pop-ups. At first I thought it was just a confidence thing. Turns out, it was mostly my poor technique and conditioning; and this wasn’t something that I could fully acknowledge until I started the program. The popup technique program has allowed me to reevaluate my popup technique, and also greatly improve my body conditioning to support my surfing. Each day I have noticed improvements in my pop-up to the point now where my confidence has increased and I can just focus on enjoying surfing waves and improving other aspects of my surfing. And it’s not just the videos in the program that are awesome, it’s the ongoing support through direct contact with Cris that is appreciated. I highly recommend this program to anyone who surfs at any level!

    Chris is the real deal

    I’ve been a lifelong surfer with extensive experience in SoCal, Hawaii, Fiji, and Mexico. However, after having life events come along, such as a wife and kids, desk jobs, the weight from my desk job and lack of activity took a toll on me. After implementing an exercise and weight loss regime, I was still having a hard time practicing my pop ups at home. I hired Chris to help me diagnose the issue. It was worth every penny. I my case flexibility was the issue, and Chris helped me get it sorted out.

    This program has really helped me improve the speed of my pop-up, which in turn improves my position going down the line. Before the program I thought I should just jump to my feet as quick as possible without giving much thought to technique. The program leads you to develop a smooth, fluid, pop-up being light on your feet instead of just stomping on the board. The program also helps with general strengthening and mobility. I highly recommend to people who are having problems or lack confidence which their pop-up.

    Changed My Life

    When I initially started this training, my primary focus was on improving my surfing pop up which for some reason had gone to custard in the last 12 months. Probably a combination of ageing and just bad habits plus never having had a good tutor like Cris to sort it out too. I’ve mostly been a competitive runner all my life and surfing has been my part time passion to provide mental stress relief and it’s just such a great sport. As soon as I started into the pop up program, my running improved!? Great side effect!! The quality of this program cannot be underestimated and Cris’s inspirational and informative emails are also right on the mark for not only surfing but all aspects of your life. You cannot underestimate how much of an impact this has had for me and my wife and kids are probably sick of hearing me rave on about it but I’ve never been involved in anything even close to this quality. The app and/or website are both very well designed and very easy to use, the videos for every exercise or stretch are very clear, it’s hard to make a mistake with this and if you do have any feedback, Cris responds to emails too. If there was a 6 star rating, it would be given here.

    The Perfect Pop Up

    A little background for others see if this could benefit them. Grew up surfing my whole life, last 20 years I have lived inland away from the coast. I am 60 and wanted to get back into surfing. I get to surf once a quarter, so hard to improve my surfing. My main problem was popping up, once I was up, I was able to ride the wave pretty good. I started the program and it was able to pin point my weaknesses, and I began his program to work on. I have been consistent in my workouts two times a week the past 3 months. I went surfing at the BSR Surf Park in Waco, TX this past weekend and did much much better in my pop-ups. It is nice to improve even when I don’t get much wave time in.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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!

    Pop up and life stuff

    Love the program, particularly the combo of science stuff and practical surf exercises to improve muscles and tissues for improved flexibility, strength, and range of motion. I not only like Cris’ approach, but I like the way he makes himself available to respond to questions, videos, etc. in an encouraging way. Hey, the rest is up to you! Thanks again, bra!

    Stoked on the mobility work!

    Big fan of this program, particularly the focus on mobility. The mobility evaluations were especially helpful. I was able to establish that it was really my hips that were my limiting factor rather than my hamstrings and calves. Digging in on the hips has improved range of movement quickly. I should also add that the strength training is very effectively targeted toward improving pop ups.

    Improve your life, health and surfing

    Cris has put together a series of programs that are not only enhancing my surfing , but my overall health and wellbeing. Whether you’re starting off out of shape, or in reasonable condition like myself, the program will develop your motor skills and desire to get fluid. I use many of the exercises as general everyday stretches to start the day well. Worth the investment!

    Perfect pop-up

    This program is so good. I felt my hips and back held my pop up back. I felt too stiff and slow and didn’t really know where to begin to
    sort it out. This program was spot on. I used it for a month before my latest surf trip to Portugal and really felt the difference. Everything worked smoother and I had better confidence ,was more calm and caught more waves! Strongly recommend.

    Fix your pop up

    Great program. Goes beyond the basic of how to do a pop up, but gives you the tools to assist you in fixing your body with the right stretching or work to fix your body parts that are stuck with limited movement or flow. Worth the small investment.

    Surf fitness for every level and age.

    I’ve been surfing for over 30 years but had some ankle problems and this was affecting my pop-up. I had a loss in stability and was causing me to more often lose balance on steeper waves. After using the pop-up program I identified other areas of muscle tightness and area that just needed more TLC. Now I’m making more take offs. My ankle is not causing any problems and I am now focussed on the overall health of my body for surfing. Now to work on my shoulders!!!

    Pop Up Program

    Although I am just starting out getting through this program, I can see how it will benefit me. Also for the money, this is good value. I will be putting the program into good use because I am using this to prep for a trip to Tavarua in May!

    Well rounded tools and technical instruction

    I’m at that dreaded beginner-intermediate level of surfing where I am trying to transition to a shorter board and get into better green waves – and I was struggling with getting a quick pop up. This program helped me with my form and also mobility limitations specific to the surfing pop up. It’s easy to do and feels great and I’m glad I purchased this!! Great investment.

    Loving the program!

    I’ve surfed for 3 decades and have been in sport and training for just as long. I’ve seen lots of coaches, lots of trainers, and lots of methods over the years. I can confidently claim that this is a very well organised and planned program. I’m learning movements that have invigorated my pop up and my surfing.
