  • next time i opened up you tube after watching the above, this popped up:


    Surfing Lessons - The Cork, aka The Paddle Boost


    So many layers of weirdness going on here, I need Hydroglide to tell me what I think about this


    I have actually seen some pretty competent surfers do this pretty effectively. Like anything else, it's about technique and picking your spots. Hopefully that spot isn't an attempt to "turn and burn", as seb noted!

  • I'm not competent, but i almost always pop my board before paddling into waves. now doing that on a corky funboard, can't say i've ever tried it. nor in a swimming pool. nor do i have yoga toes.

    Well we don't have to wait for Hydro's take on this any longer.

    Goodonya for taking it all in stride, Brent.


    Please keep posting, there are SO many people new to surfing that read these forums and are looking for guidance, advice, and tips. Letting them also see the banter amongst all of us is good as well, it just reinforces that surfing, like life, is not a "one size fits all" deal and they need to evaluate and find what works best for them.

  • I had an argument with a friend about the the Longboard pop-up versus the shortboard pop-up. She was taught the "longboard  pop-up" and my assertion is that isn't even a good "pop-up" for a longboard, since if you don't get the long roll in, and have to drop late on an angle, you're screwed.


    I have based so much of my long boarding life on the late take off for big and small waves. It's totally possible, though not as easy as on a shortboard. Late, sideways takeoffs on logs are fun as hell. You are only screwed if you're a novice. There is a technique, for sure, but I'm not up for attempting an explanation.


    My short boarding takeoff is about not getting my front boot caught on a bump of wax as I drag my lardbut to its feet.

    I would say having seen your late takeoffs on REAL waves on either Longboards or oddities, that your pop-up happens in one FAST, fluid motion. No hitches or using your toes on the board there or you wouldn't make that brown trout.
    It's no better to be safe than sorry....
