Start Surfing with Style, technique and confidence

It's all about style, and style is just good technique done effortlessly

More time in the water Doesn't equal Progression

Land based training has been the missing link for thousands of surfers

No two waves are the same, so how do you practice the same thing over and over? If your body and mind don’t actually know what the movement is, how it should feel and how it interacts with your board, how do you know what to do and how do you know if its right or wrong?

While looking stylish and with proper technique, Cardboard Surfer will have you co-ordinating your body to perform every movement on a surfboard. Whether that’s popping up, standing, cruising, bottom turn, top turn and driving speed, you’ll know how and by practising the drills, you’ll gain muscle memory, allowing you to repeat these movements on command in the water and this is the vital piece missing.

What Current Students are Saying

Sneak peak at the course

By the end of the program, you won't even recognise your previous surfing

What you'll learn

retrain your body and mind on land, for success in the water

Across 5 distinct topics, you'll learn about:

Pop Up

Never let your pop up ruin a surf again. The pop up is often over complicated and this program will have you getting up like you are simply walking up from the floor. 


Your surfing will look better and your technique will drastically improve as you adopt a neutral stance. Your body will now be more free and open to better perform movements, resulting in more balance, more control and feeling and looking better.


You’ll be turning front side, backside, bottom and top, all with style from the use of a simple coffee cup. It’s so easy, anyone who can hold a coffee cup can surf and will finally allow you to understand the mechanics of surfing and turning. Your confidence and style will explode.


Learn to look like you are dancing on water, draw speed and power from the wave, instead of manufacturing it. Learn proper technique and develop body and mind co-ordination to get your board exactly where you want it to be.


Learn to turn stylishly, with ease and power. No longer go from A to B, you’ll be utilising your whole body to generate torque that transfers to your board, feels good and looks even better. No more flailing arms or body parts going in different directions.

Who's this program for?

say goodbye to bad habits, regardless of skill, age or location

Whether your surfing 1ft or 6ft surf, haven’t surfed long or have been surfing your whole life, the program will retrain and replace bad habits in your surfing and train good habits, understanding, awareness and critical analysis of your own surfing. 

If you’re learning to surf its even better as you have minimal to no bad habits to replace, which will translate to a faster progression simply training good habits from the start.

Surfing doesn't have to be frustrating

Within a week, your surfing will rapidly progress as you suddenly start noticing, analysing and critiquing your own surfing, the conditions and every other surfing. You will suddenly unlock all the missing links between good surfing and bad and begin understanding how to fix them.

A new surfboard is amazing, feels great and gets us excited, but doesn’t suddenly make us a better surfer.

Starting on the accelerated surfing program is an investment into your surfing technique, knowledge and ability. This will ensure on any surfboard you will be able to perform as you will be able to control the surfboard based on its design to perform the way you want it.

Nope, just a piece of cardboard slightly wider than your stance. Similar size to a skateboard.

No, more time in the water doesn’t equal faster progression. It simply compounds bad habits, if you want to progress your surfing, you need to break the chains of bad habits and build muscle memory. When we are surfing, the time on the wave is minimal and probably counts for minutes in an hour. So using land training drills you can build the muscle memory and then take that to the ocean and repeat the movements on command. Ready for your next surf trip!

take the pressure out of surfing

Steve Burns, "My mates didn't even recognise me surfing"

Steve thought he had to spend more time in the water to progress his surfing. This was the first time surfing and the actual movements and mechanics of surfing had been broken down so easily for him, that he could then apply it. It’s taken all the pressure out of surfing for him. The program is just so simple.
