I want to become a better surfer! I know you guys will say eat healthy work out, and of course surf more! But I was surfing a few days ago, and I found difficulty doing the \"pop-up\" on my short board! I can get myself up, but I kept falling! I usually don't have trouble with it! An older guy out there told me that I was better at turns and carving than standing up! Any tips on how to conquer the pop-up? Like certain techniques or steps to do it! Please help!
