It becomes much easier to “Pop Up” properly on your surfboard with the proper “Take Off” technique. You can practice this technique at home!


How to catch a wave

Want to have more fun surfing? You need to get better at positioning yourself for unbroken waves & match their speed in order to catch more of them.


How to angle your “Take Off”

Surfing is more fun when you start angling your “Take Off” and riding the wave’s face. Doing your “Pop Ups” with a slight angle will help you get the momentum you need to ride on a wave’s face, to either go right or left.


Surf etiquette

Learn the important unwritten rules of surfing: a code of conduct to stay safe and be respectful of other surfers.
