The surfing popup is essentially an explosive pushup. This is how you get from paddling position on a surfboard to standing on your feet! The pop up is also one of the more important things to learn when beginning to surf. So if you’re not sure on how it’s done or maybe you just need a few more pointers, this blog will give you the low down!
When done correctly the pop-up will be one fluid motion, meaning you are required to have some upper body strength. If you’re able to do 8 normal push ups or 12 -14 knee push ups then strength shouldn’t be a problem for you. But like the physical act of surfing, you’re only going to get better with practice, and the easiest place to do that is out of the water. Practicing the pop up 10-20 times a day will not only increase your strength, but your muscle memory as well. Meaning next time you’re out in the water you’ll be much more confident in getting to your feet.Everyone’s surfing popup is slightly different, but for all intents and purposes the popup technique is basically the same for everyone.
At the beach, you can lay your surfboard down on the sand (dig the fins into the sand to avoid breaking them) and practice your popup before you go surfing.
