WHAT TO EXPECT
DAY 1 – Technique
Depending on your surfing experience, we will start with working through your understanding of different techniques including; handling your board and duck diving / getting out back efficiently, perfecting your stance, talking about types of waves and different wave sections for specific manoeuvres on a shortboard.
Using Video analysis, we will break down the footage to take a look at your bad habits (and good ones!) so that we can work on specific skills and manoeuvres over the weekend, building confidence in the line up and setting you up for the future.
Day 1 includes two in-water sessions with your coaches and a theory session. Our photographer & videographer will be with you all day to capture your waves.
DAY 2 – Progression
The second day is all about taking in what you have seen and learnt from your footage and giving it a go, starting with baby steps to ensure that you are pushing your surfing to the next level in a controlled and fun environment with your instructors who are there to help you every step of the way!
Day 2 comprises 2 in-water sessions and a theory session and once again our videographer/photographer is on hand to capture your progress.
