The dry land class prepares you on what to expect and allows you to practice key movements like paddling and popping up. The most difficult aspects of learning to surf are; a nice smooth motion in popping up, keeping one's center of gravity low and a good flexed balance on the midline of the board.

Our surf board simulator helps our students develop these critical aspects accelerating their water learning experience.

Practicing on the Surf Board Simulator

The surf board simulator balances on a rail so that it is essential that the student pop up along the stringer or midline of the board otherwise the board tips to the side.  Below a student shows the correct way to pop up on the surf board simulator without tipping the board:
