  1. I was always popping up too quickly to full height only to plunge into the
    drink. This had made a difference. Thank you so much for this.

  2. @Marshmillo Hi guy! FIRST: Store that board and get a funfoard, a longboard
    or a minimal. SECOND: For starters (like you) the best technique is that
    explained by derekwl1986 in “how to pop-up on a shortboard”, check it!!
    THIRD: Master the method, first in the floor, then in the water. Remember
    that at first you will spend a lot of time in the water, but you will be
    only able to maker a few attemps to pop ou… or not?

  3. i have a problem when im surfing with a short board when i get up it is
    waayyyy harder than a longboard and i cant get my feet set. my feet are
    never on the trac pad and they are very missplaced. any tips too help me
    with that? should i surf with a bigger board intell im really comfortable
    with gettting up?

  4. I have been surfing for 12 years and this is far and away the best method
    for getting up efficiently. All this stuff about getting up fast in one
    fast motion is BS. The key is doing this efficiently and stabilizing before
    you get up. Thats a smart way to think of it. Otherwise you may get up but
    you will be behind the wave if you cant get stabile.

  5. awesome! I just spent a week bailing out because I couldn’t get my front
    leg through, but since you said hands not on the rails, Its better. cheers!

  6. @JuJuHound this method doesnt explain specifically hoy to pop up. I
    recommend you to check derekwl1986 “how to pop-up on a shortboard”

  7. should work, if you have time enuff, otherwise you need to do it way faster
    which will cause you to make mistakes, but it is a good way to do it!

  8. are you your toes as you pop up or is your weight shifting straight from
    the knees to hands to feet. In other words, is this a longboard-specific
    pop up or does this method work on shortboards?

    Question: I can pop up no problem on a longboard but on my 7’0″ funboard,
    I’ve found it’s harder because I can’t put my toes on the end of the board
    to help me pop up cause they’re further back. Any tips??

  10. finally! a surf instruction vid that doesn’t suck. so important to tell
    people to plant their front foot under their chest
