Personal, Friendly and Effective Surf Coaching
In the past, surf instruction has been reserved for complete beginners receiving a basic introduction to the sport or elite surfers looking to become professionals. Our goal, to bridge the gap by providing professional surf coaching for recreational surfers of all levels and abilities. Surfing can be enjoyed by basically anyone but unfortunately many beginners throw in the towel because they feel like surfing is beyond their reach. It’s not! with the right instruction, knowledge and a little will power you can break into a sport that just keeps on giving.
We Develop your Surfing from the Ground Up
Whether you are learning how to catch green waves or how to launch airs, one thing is vital – correct technique of the basic surf skills. Many surfers develop bad habits that hinder their ability to improve which is why when teaching beginners we help them develop and master the correct technique from the start, paving a clear road for progression. When it comes to working with intermediate and advanced surfers there is often a couple of small tweaks that can be made to drastically open up their ability to progress. For example, a small fix as simple as slightly altering your foot positioning can be the answer to developing a more dynamic cutback. Rather than overloading information we break it up, providing you with single things to work on at a time that will help develop your surfing as a whole.
What Makes our Coaches Different
Our team are not only great surfers they are great communicators.
I once viewed a world champion surfer delivering a basic beginner surf lesson to a professional rugby team for a television show. I was shocked at how mediocre the instruction was, as a result, the students who were conditioned athletes struggled to even catch waves. Our coaches are natural teaches that have a passion for developing peoples surfing technique as well as their own and we believe this makes all the difference.
Tools and Techniques
Surfing is a unique sport which is why it needs a unique coaching approach. Listed below are just a few of the tools we like to implement into our surf coaching, we don’t want to give away too much…
These are specific goals and objectives that we create for you before every surf session. There’s a lot going on when you are bobbing around out in the ocean and it’s easy to become overwhelmed trying to focus on too much at once. With achievable, easy to follow goals you will improve and develop more confidence with every surf.
Watching yourself can be a humbling experience for any level surfer but when it is combined with solid coaching it is one of the most effective tools around.
We use specialized coaching software allowing us to slow down , split screen and analyze the small subtleties that usually go unnoticed when surfing. Once you have a clear vision of what you are doing and what you can work on then we can put some goals in place for your next surf.
Productive Waves + Personalised Coaching
This combination is the perfect recipe for improving your surfing. We run our surf coaching trips in destinations that have excellent waves for progression whilst giving you personalized, real time feedback from professional coaches.
