Download the FREE Pod Cast I recorded: “Learn to Surf”    The basic techniques for beginners. 

You will come to lessons better prepared to absorb the same messages I deliver on the pod cast. 

This 15 minute pod cast blends both my dry land lesson and guidance tips in the water. I cover how to balance on the board, catch waves, pop to a stance, paddle out for waves, and carve. After 7 years of teaching full time and year around to over 1,000 students, I have learned what students need to hear. Listen to it on any devices over and over until you have mastered the techniques. Listen before you go in the water and after you have been in the water. You want to practice correctly. The techniques will sink in.

You can also listen to it on ITunes

This following Video on three methods of popping up. For long boarders, going slower in step two and three might be alright. For short boarders, I would definitely recommend step one only.
