Takeoff is difficult. I can’t pop up smoothly.
There are many causes. In your case, why not grab the surfboard with both hands at the time of takeoff?
that’s right. I’m holding a surfboard.
Grabbing the surfboard will slow down the pop-up.
But I’m scared if I don’t grab the surfboard. This is because the surfboard is not stable during takeoff.
You are misunderstanding. Takeoff is easier if you don’t grab the surfboard.
This time, I will talk about how to put your hands during takeoff.
Disadvantage to grab a surfboard
I’m scared if I don’t grab the surfboard.
Don’t grab the rails on the surfboard. The time to take off is very short. It’s a waste of time to remove the hands that grabbed the rail. Also, during takeoffs, surfers act like push-ups. You can’t do push-ups quickly if you’re holding the rail.
I realized that I couldn’t waste even the slightest amount of time.
That’s right. Takeoff requires all actions to be done in a short amount of time.
How to put your hands on surfboard
Pop-ups on take-off are different from push-ups. This is because the pop-up raises the upper body while pushing the tail with the knee. However, the movement of stretching your arms is similar to push-ups. At the bottom of your chest, push up as if you were pushing the surfboard down.
Surfers do push-ups, so it’s a mistake to grab the rails on the surfboard. However, I’m still worried if I don’t grab the rail.
Contradictory to the above explanation, I’m actually grasping the rail a little. Only the little and ring fingers may get caught in the rail. This method may not be the best method. However, it is my habit.
Exception :Backside grab rail take off
I will talk about exceptions. This is for the backside grab rail. If the waves are steep, grab the rail as soon as you take off. (I’m a regular footer, so I grab the rail with my right hand.)
In my case, only at this time, I grab the rail with my right hand from the time of push-up and it pops up as it is. (The left hand does not grab the rail.)
Your right hand grabs the rail and your left hand doesn’t. It looks difficult.
It is not a technique for beginners. However, the backside grab rail is a very exciting technique. Please challenge someday.
