Advanced Surf Coaching

Surfing is a sport where you can reach a performance plateau and get stuck at a level, unable to progress. Certain skills can not be learned through experience alone. Everyone can benefit from additional surfing lessons. Having one of our Senior Surfing Instructors analyse your style, techniques, wave selection etc. can have a dramatic effect on your surfing and produce quick results. We can refine your existing surfing skills as well as introduce new ones. We also ensure that there are enough Instructors on hand to offer individual coaching within a group environment.
