Surf coaching has come a long way over the last few years. Back in the day if your surfing buddy suggested you needed to compress a little lower to get more out of your bottom turn or you needed to paddle out down the beach to take advantage of the rip you would have had a simple message for them. $%@*&^# or something along those lines that can't be printed here.
Now the surfing reality is about enjoying quality surf time. You can obtain high quality surfboards for any conditions, checkout surf conditions and forecasts online and access quality surf coaching that can improve your technique very easily.
I run two hour one on one personal coaching programs. I can tailor the lesson to your level of comfort and ability at any beach on Phillip Island. Feel free to check out the testimonials which demonstrate the value of the sessions.
The two hour coaching session costs $150.
The sessions cover a combination of surfboard design and suitability, surf awareness and most importantly the bio mechanics of surfing technique. There are simple straight forward techniques that will improve your takeoff, bottom turn, cutback or what ever manoeuvre you feel needs tweaking. I also have Mentawai surf charter packages available. In fact if you need a surf coach to any destination I can work out a program for you.
ASP World tour Head Judge Richie Porta along with Parko and Mighty Mick say that the most important manoeuvre in a surfers repertoire is the bottom turn. This manoeuvre sets up the whole wave so getting it right is important.
So if you are up for having more fun in the water or need to tweak your technique before that once in a life time boat trip contact me to organise a program for you.
