Hands/Feet during pop-up? another popup ?...
Hi everyone I have yet another pop-up question. I've done searches and have seen several questions and answers concerning this subject but none of them answer my question so...
When I am poping up, I arch my back, feet are off handing off the back of the board, knees are pushing into the deck, I throw my A@# into the air, tuck them under me, but cant seem to get my front foot up to my hands.
I see different variations to the pop up, in which some of them, people are getting their front foot planted next to their hands, while their hands are still on the board. They don't let go of the board until their feet are planted on the board. I cant do that, might be flexibility issue????
Some people I see arch their backs, lift their feet in the air, and seem to push their upperbody up and back during the arch and roll their feet under neath themselves. As soon as their upper body is going up and back they let go of the board with their hands and their feet come under them after their hands let go.
So as you can seem I a little confused in regards to the proper way the hands and feet are supposed to released and planted. I try both but when I try the first variation like I said my front foot wont come through the hole between my arms and board, and the second variation the board is very wobbly and when i let go of the front and try to bring my feet up after the weight is on the back of the board, which causes it to bring the nose up in the air = ride over.
Thanks for any replies and I appreciate any help I can get.
