Below is the correct takeoff position. At first, lie down and paddle. The waves lift the surfboard tail from bottom to top, so push the tail with your knees to level the surfboard.

Keep your knees on the tail of the surfboard and extend your arms. Crawl on all fours.

Pop-ups are different from push-up movements. The biggest difference is that you keep your knees on the tail of the surfboard. Crawl on all fours.

Why do I put my knees on the tail of the surfboard?

The surfboard must be kept level during takeoff. The tail is lifted up by the power of the waves. When popping up, you need to use your knees to push the tail into the waves.

Keep your surfboard level by moving your body to the nose or tail side while crawl on all fours.

This is a very important technique. Many beginners don’t know how to do this.

If you move your upper body forward while crawl on all fours, the nose side of the surfboard will sink. The shape of the waves is always different. Control your surfboard and keep it level.

If you move your upper body backwards while crawl on all fours, the tail side of the surfboard will sink. The shape of the waves is always different. Control your surfboard and keep it level.

I didn’t know how to do this.

It’s a secret method. Don’t tell anyone. You can also practice this method on the floor. Place your knees on the floor, crawl on all fours, and move your upper body back and forth. If you practice on the floor, you can do this action smoothly on the sea.

Thank you very much. I will practice on the floor.

Keep in mind that moving your upper body forward will accelerate and moving your upper body backward will slow down, depending on the situation.

While crawl on all fours, curl your back and create a space where you can move your front foot forward.

When popping up, the front foot should be in the middle of the surfboard. Please curl your back to create a space. This space also needs to be created within 1 second. When you stretch your elbows and raise your upper body, curl your back at the same time.

It’s completely different from push-ups.

First place the back foot on the traction pad.

Place the back foot on the traction pad first. The best place to put the back foot is in the middle of the three fins. Point your knees to the outside of the surfboard and touch the traction pad inside the back foot to locate it. Place your back foot, keeping in mind pushing the tail into the waves to keep the surfboard level.

So that’s it. I use the back foot to check the position of the traction pad. It seems difficult, but I will try it.

Place the front foot almost at the same time as you place the back foot.

Place the front foot as soon as you place the back foot. You’re on all fours with your back curled up, so you have space to move your legs forward. Move your knees to touch your chest.

I will try to touch my knees to my chest.

Place your front foot and take your hands off the surfboard.

Place the front foot on the surfboard and step on it firmly. Your body will be stable. Then move your hands away from the surfboard.

Keep your posture low even after you take your hands off the surfboard.

Keep your upper body low even after you take your hands off the surfboard. Many beginners stretch their knees when they pop up. This is a big mistake. Bending your knees deeper lowers your center of gravity. The surfboard is stable. You don’t have to stretch your knees to destabilize your surfboard.

By all means, I stretch my knees.

Even if you succeed in popping up, you can wipe out by stretching your knees. Be sure to keep your low posture. Also, if you bend your knees, you can accelerate your surfboard by stretching your knees the next time you make an ups and downs or bottom turn.
