Video Coaching for all genders and most abilities, a fun 3 days surfing together and supporting each other
What the Surf Coaching looks like on our Video Coaching Days
We will have 6 filmed surf sessions from the land, plenty of time to capture clips of you in different surf conditions. This course is less focused on group theory and more focused on individual feedback.
Before setting out we will cover the basics of safety and ettiquette to make sure we are all on the same page. We will always explain the conditions of where we are surfing before getting in, to make sure we all feel comfortable.
Mind based conversations
Set achievable individual goals for the next sessions and longer term goals for the future
If we see something that can benefit everyone we will run a theory session on it
We will give you and use in water exercises to improve and learn in a way that makes you feel good :)
Individual Coaching Days
in a like minded group
3 day course
Short, Intense, and Fun. Using filming as our main tool of coaching, watching it and taking those goals into the water following drills to improve while having fun. All that while receiving one on one tips and support from our experienced coaches in the water.
We Are Mobile
We pick the best surf spots for the day within our permissions. So we will never be bound to surf unfriendly conditions. (unless the conditions are terrible everywhere we will then switch the surf for something more beneficial)
6 group sessions
Mad for it we will surf until we have spaghetti arms! (We won't enforce this don't worry!) We surf for as long as the group and waves work well, as we aren't limited to any time restraints. Plenty of time to get clips in a multitude of conditions
Our courses have all been scheduled around small (neap) tides so we can surf without the pressure of the tide getting too low or too high.
Why Video Coaching?
Video coaching offers lots of benefits, allowing yourself and coaches to see you in action and analyze movements. This practical approach reduces the need for extended theory sessions on land, emphasizing more time spent in the water practicing and refining techniques. The dynamic nature of video coaching creates a fun and engaging learning environment, fostering a sense of community among surfers who share the experience. The learning process is enhanced as surfers receive personalized feedback on their performance, contributing to a more effective and enjoyable surfing journey.

Our maximum number per course is 8 people. With three experienced coaches. We like to keep it small so we can effectively help and advise everyone.
We have a mix of technical theories and open conversations about surfing. We believe improving your surfing isn't just in the technique but also in the mindset. Our ethos is to give you the permission to play and encourage learning from and supporting each other.
Our technical theories use demonstrations, videos, images, on land practice and in water exercises. We have created our curriculum through years of experience and critical thinking combining them in a way that's easier to understand and digest.
