This is one of my favorite Guard Passes in BJJ. And I’ve called in the Surfboard pass since I learned it.

What’s great about this pass is the functionality of it mixed with the appearance of being “fancy” or advanced.

When in fact, there’s not advanced or fancy about it. . .

It’s literally a technical standup / stand up and base mixed with a forward push to clear the legs.

This move came about because recently I posted a video of me and my students rolling.

And at some point in the video I hit the Surfboard pass against my student’s Butterfly Guard. And I received lots of questions asking what exactly the pass was.

As I said, this is one of my favorite Brazilian Jiujitsu guard passes to throw into the mix against an opponent’s Butterfly Guard.

So if you’re looking for a cool Guard pass technique to add into your Brazilian Jiu-jitsu game then I hope this move is useful for you!
