more than just surfing
what level surfer am i?
You just want to try surfing or you have been surfing once. We have created a beginner program with all the basics of surfing, working basically on your stand-up and paddle techniques. You'll learn more about the ocean and how the waves brake. Your first steps in this incredible sport.
You can comfortably stand on the board and are focusing on catching unbroken waves. So you’ll learn to paddle through the white water efficiently and safely; learn about binary and dynamic wave selection; work on agility and prediction drills; angle your take off; create speed down the line; understand and know how to confidently and safely deal with any situation which may present itself to you.
You can consistently catch head high waves without assistance. So most of the coaching is done with the video camera, allowing you to see what you are doing on the face. We start with how to find the fastest trimming line, then how, why and when to perform horizontal carving changes of direction (cutbacks), then it’s about climbing on top of breaking sections (floaters).
Coaching is about performing committed maneuvers, in the critical part of the wave, with speed power and flow. We establish which areas of your surfing are the limiting factor. Then you’ll learn which skills are relevant to you so you can break your free surfs up into productive bite sized drills. The aim is that you will leave being able to fault find and self coach by watching video of yourself in future.
