Surfing is Three dimensional, so why practce in only two?

The idea of a surf skate is to learn how to control speed, not manufacture it

When you surf, you are riding down the wave, there’s push behind the wave, you’ve constantly got speed. You can position yourself anywhere on the wave, up, down, forward, back, left or right, so why practice on a surf skate only on a flat surface? The only way to skate three dimensional is on a skate ramp or bowl. The more off balance you get, the better your board goes, the more G force and centrifugal forces you create, the better it feels.

Learn to harness these forces, understand how to draw out your turns at speed and to suddenly snap. The idea of a surf skate is to learn how to control that speed. Take your surf skating into a bowl, do it with confidence, speed and learn how to flow between turns.

What you'll learn

Sync your body to how it feels to surf three dimensional

Across 5 distinct topics, you'll learn about:

Dropping In

Drop in with confidence, speed and avoid the injuries. Learn how to apply the drop in or roll in on a surf skate to your pop up in surfing, start with speed and how to co-ordinate your body.


Learn to control speed and not manufacture it. Build upon cardboard surfer and create lift in the bowl, go higher on a ramp and maintain speed without having to push.


Reduce the risk of injury and learn how to turn in a bowl. Bad habits are highlighted in a bowl, you can’t wiggle, learn the correct movements to ensure you can build up to advanced turns and remain injury free.


Start turning with style, speed and learn to enjoy being off balance. Skating a bowl is the most fun you can have on a surf skate. Simulate proper surfing manoeuvres  and carry this to the surf.


Link turns together, find rhythm and flow and treat any skatepark as a canvas waiting for different lines. Creativity, changing lines and routes is what keeps skating a bowl fresh and will become an endless learning experience.

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!

Surf Skate Foundations, stands on its own but also builds off the land based training in Cardboard Surfer and Bosu Surfer. Applying all three training methods will set you up for success.

Surf Skate Foundations also links into the Advanced Surf Skate Program which will take your skating to ramps and bowls to truly simulate surfing.

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.
