I think ‘pop’ is all about going fast. You need strength in your whole body and to perfect your timing. I don’t do any training, I just windsurf. You have to be really explosive when you take off. It’s a combination of the sails which give you the lift and the board that ‘pops’. Most freestylers sail overpowered, that is why we can go high when we ‘pop’. When you go fast there is less power in your sail but when you take off you have the power to go high.
