Previously could not pop up fast enough so brought longer boards, same problem. I could not get my left leg through quick enough or at all, now with such high clearance I pop up and plant my front foot and stomp it ready for a bottom turn ! YES! Now I can get up. Grateful i am surfing again...my testimonials are already on your website! 48 years surfing /lumbar prolapsed discs/ broken neck/post operation Artificial Disc replacement C6/C7 spasms and pain. Thanks again! Im stoked!! I am a natural foot stance so ill be changing my inside right rail knob lower than the left as my inside right hand is lower than the left hand . Will be putting them on my new custom board and yes much more clearance no more blowing take offs dragging my left leg/foot...Grateful! thank you! Will be posting feedback when we get some more surf! Big game changer for sure! They work for me so they will work for anyone!
Before I was able to pop up maybe once in a session, now I'm up to 3 or so out of about 8-9 waves. Not a miracle cure but should keep me stoked enough to keep improving. My background: surfing over 40 years and had lower back and hip replacement surgery about a year ago. Product suggestion: Make a version that is longer, maybe the length of 2 of them side by side. Depending on the wave, early or late entry, where I place my hands to push up moves around a bit. I have been in contact with the Surf Knobs team and they are an incredible group of people. They listen to my suggestions and provide information and solutions that have been very helpful. It is great to know that there are people who care about their product and will stand behind it. I recommend Surf Knobs to anyone who needs help with their pop-up. When you buy them you are not just buying the Knobs, but also the knowledge and support of a great group who are willing to help you achieve your goals.
Thank you for creating such a wonderful product! It really has helped me tremendously in my pop up. No more foot drag. I expect to keep surfing forever now!

"This product has helped, and is helping surfers that do have problems with there hips, knees or whatever that is stopping them from getting up on their board quicker than they used to."
"After my injury, I thought I wouldn't be able to enjoy the sport ever again. With the help of Surf Knobs I am able to ride again."
They work! Longboarded evening glass off at Short Sands. Been struggling with jump ups due to knee surgery but no longer! Popped right up!
Caught 9 waves in 30 minutes and got up on every one, which is incredible!!!
Those surfers who have arm, back or leg injuries see dramatic benefits when using Surf Knobs. Surf Knobs allow them to get into their surfing stance despite their injury. They are sometimes used as a bridge for someone who is just getting back in the water after injury.
The aging surfer often struggles with adequate arm or back strength. Also, with age, we lose our flexibility, which makes it more and more difficult to execute a fast, controlled pop-up. Surf Knobs give the extra space you need to get your lower body into your surfing stance. It’s the equivalent of yoga blocks for your surfboard. Surf Knobs have been shown to get older surfers back out surfing successfully again after they thought surfing was in their past.
Surf Knobs have been shown to accelerate the learning curve for beginners. This is accomplished by providing a very defined, accurate place to put their hands during their pop-up. This proves useful in dry-land teaching and translates easily to in-water instruction. Also, with the extra space created by Surf Knobs, it’s easier for the beginner surfer to do a single motion pop-up into a correct surfing stance.
Offset the placement. Most people don’t realize they stagger their hands when popping up. Left hand planted closer to the nose compared to right hand if they are left foot forward (vice-versa for goofy footers). Photo is with a goofy footer.
Base placement for flatter waves. Hand placement varies some based on the type of wave you're taking off on. The steeper the wave the farther back your hands will be. Place the Knobs where you plant your hands on a flatter wave (so closer to the nose). These waves are often the toughest to get your lower body underneath you because there is very little board drop. On fast breaking waves, you’ll have more board drop and hence more space between your chest and the board to swing into your stance. In this situation, don’t use the Knobs, just plant your hands behind them on the deck.
Use Replacement Adhesives if you need to adjust your Knobs position.
