dtc wrote:Can you do it on land - that is, go from a crouch to standing? A lot of people - particularly if your usual job is a desk job - have very weak glutes (your 'bum' muscles) and the glutes are very important in raising you up from a crouch and are also vital muscles in terms of balance. While its not initially logical, when you balance you are moving your upper body and hips around to counter balance the changes at feet level - which requires hinging at the hips and its your glutes that control this movement.).

My impression was that its very easy to be not quite balanced - for example, at times I found both arms in front of my body and also that I was tending to lean a lot on my back leg. Trying to stand from this position is ok on land because the land doesnt move, but on the board it might squirt the board away from you.
So I think the question I should have asked is 'when you try to stand, is there some consistent pattern' eg: you fall off the board backwards or sideways etc'?
I assume you arent trying to pop up and then stand up immediately ie you are popping up into the crouched position and then waiting a second or a few and then trying to stand up?
Nice fin on the board.
