At the time of pop-up, my knees are on the surfboard and I can’t stand up.
That’s because your body is stiff. This time, I will talk about the exercises required for pop-ups.
Why do you need to be flexible when surfing pop-ups?

→ After putting both feet on the surfboard, release both hands from the surfboard
I can’t move my body well when popping up. I can’t move the front foot with my hands on the surfboard.
Pop-ups can only be smooth if your body is flexible.

It is important to be able to do exactly the same thing every time.
In addition, the back foot must also be in the correct position. The backfoot should be placed in the middle of the three fins or slightly on the nose side. Beginners tend to place their backfoot on the nose side of the traction pad due to their stiff body. Placing the back foot in this position will result in instability. On both feet
