How long does it take for you to practice the pop up movement in the water 100 times?
Pop up can be difficult to practice in the water, as you have to paddle up, wait in the line up, try it and then paddle back behind the wave break. This is not the most efficient way to memorise the right sequence of movements for the pop up. In one session maybe you get to do it 10, max. 20 times before you get completely exhausted.
Imagine that you could speed up your development by committing the entire movement at home 100x in just a few days. Next time you got the wave rumbling behind you in the water, the movement will be automatic and you can focus more on staying longer on the wave and doing turns. Wouldn’t that be a lot more fun?
