Known universally as a 'Surf Skate', SmoothStar is an on-land surf trainer that simulates surfing. It helps beginner surfers with the skills they need to learn to surf and progress faster.
Master the basics of surfing on dry land so when you hit the waves, you’ll have better balance, stability, and the correct body position. Surf training with a SmoothStar helps a beginner surfer catch more waves and ride them for longer.
Balance plays an important role in learning how to surf. SmoothStar offers more stability than a surfboard so you can improve balance faster while practising the correct body position. It feels and moves just like a surfboard does on the water.
Standing on your surfboard is the next goal after learning to pop up on the beach. With the SmoothStar surf trainer you will practise and perfect the correct surfing body position so that when you hit the waves, you will feel more familiar and comfortable on your board.
SmoothStar allows you to develop good habits from the start. By learning the correct surf stance as a beginner, you are far less likely to develop bad habits that can take years to correct.
You will not need to upgrade your SmoothStar when transitioning from a beginner to an advanced surfer. The same surf trainer will be with you for each step of your surf progression, building your surf strength while you improve faster, and most importantly, have more fun.
As you progress to an intermediate surfer, SmoothStar will teach you coordination, rhythm, top and bottom turns, taking you all the way to perfecting critical turns as an advanced surfer.
Find a SmoothStar surf coach near you to help take your surfing to the next level. Advanced surf training with a coach will fast-track your progression by identifying any areas for improvement, working through any bad habits, and giving you the confidence and support to perfect critical surf manoeuvres.
