Its good practicing popping up on dry land but……….The thing the video misses big time is, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT to land on the board with BOTH FEET FLAT on the board at the same time. Landing on your toes as video shows will make you more unstable causing you more chance of blowing your take off because on your toes you are more unstable. For me the best dry land pop out exercise is DIPS

A very good video on getting to the point of riding waves and how to get up. The good thing about doing the pop up in waves is you get the board dropping in and this is a help getting up on ones board as your using grativy to help getting to your feet.
