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

I’m 68 years old and I’ve been surfing for over 50 years. I can really relate to the post about dry land strength and conditioning !!!

The answer lies in several questions I need to ask you... "What's your skill level, height, weight, goal, type of wave...?" I think you get the idea.
