Are you dropping into decent sized waves and riding open green faces but struggling to take your surfing to the next level? SmoothStar is the perfect tool to improve your surfing, especially for an intermediate surfer who feels their progression has stalled.
Learn the correct timing of connecting your lower body to your upper body on land, using the SmoothStar. The correct coordination and rhythm becomes 'a feeling' that you can transfer to the waves with ease and fluidity.
A lack of compression and extension in a surfer’s legs is one of the major factors that prevents an intermediate surfer from getting better at surfing. By using SmoothStar you learn correct compression, extension and timing. Good compression is key to generating speed which is needed for all manoeuvres.
Generating speed on a SmoothStar requires the same body movement as on a surfboard. Perfecting the technique on a SmoothStar will develop the right muscle memory. In the water, these movements will start to feel natural and familiar. Learning to generate speed opens up the possibility of using your rails and carving your way to sharper turns, cutbacks and critical manoeuvres.
Intermediate surfers can look forward to using their SmoothStar for advanced surf training. The SmoothStar is an ideal tool for perfecting technique and fixing bad habits. Surfers can practise critical surf manoeuvres such as tail slides, cutbacks, round houses and aerials before working up to simulating a wave using a steep slope to perfect new advanced surfing skills and manoeuvres.
