Reviews

Clayton Neinaber

OMBE Head Coach

Clayton Neinaber has over 30 years surfing (ex-pro surfer), 20 years shaping boards (Clayton Surfboards) and 15 years coaching professional and average surfers. From coaching Jordy Smith, Mikey February, Travis Logie and the South African team to thousands of average surfers, Clayton has seen it all in coaching. But it's not his experience that people connect with, it's his ability to break surfing down into the most basic analgoies and explanations, so you can cut out the noise and actually apply changes to your surfing. Clayton has dedicated his life to understanding surfing in more detail, chasing every rabit hole and seeking knowledge not just from within surfing, but also from outside surfing. It's all about doing less, feeling more and doing things the easy way, rather than the hard way.

Surfing is more fun with friends

The community is a safe place for all and is where like minded surfers come together, meet and improve their surfing together.

What is OMBE and what does it stand for?

OMBE stands for Ocean, Mind, Body and Equipment.

It is an approach with a focus on syncing all four major aspects within your surfing. When all four are in sync, your surfing will improve and you will easily enter a flow state within the ocean.

Most surfers will focus on their equipment first and expect an immediate improvement in their surfing but there is an order to OMBE and a reason for it.

You first must pay attention to the ocean and what it is doing, then calm your mind, relax and remove tension, as well as understanding how to do the manoeuvres, then you give your body the chance to effectively do the manoeuvre and your focus is on removing tension in the body and doing it more effortlessly. The board will either amplify or mute your movements and then it is a case of right tool for the job.

What is included in the OMBE Membership

Everything.

Access to all of our training programs with a variety of training methods. Some are structured in-depth follow along training that you can do for months and months. Other programs are designed as theory courses and then there are our monthly challenges which are designed to get you out of your comfort zone and master manoeuvres.

What training program is right for me or where should I start?

If you are unsure you can find the right program for you on our discovery page where you can filter the programs based on your skill level and training needs.

We recommend starting with either the Beginner 6 Week Surf Start Program or the Intermediate 12 Week Surf Smart Program, based on what you want to achieve and where your surfing is. These are designed to help break bad habits and master your foundations so you can then tackle the monthly challenges which focus on the manoeuvres.

How do the Monthly Challenges work?

Every month we launch new structured training on a new manoeuvre or part of your surfing. We apply The OME Method and the 6 pillars of that training to every topic as well as all the drills broken down from a beginner to an advanced surfer.

This gives you every you need to dive deep into a manoeuvre, regardless of where your skill is at, understand all the theory, fundamentals and training to progress.

You can either follow along every month with the new training, go at your own pace or explore theback catalogue of previous months training.

How does the monthly live feedback webinars work?

For our Surf Start, Surf Smart and Monthly challenges we do a monthly zoom call with the community where you can submit your footage for us to review and give feedback, as well as ask questions. If you can not make the time for the webinar you can still submit footage or ask questions.

We are also active within the community and engaging in the discussions that go on there.

Can I repeat the programs?

You can repeat all of the programs as many times as you like. They are designed with the idea that you will revisit them over time.

Can I go at my own pace?

Some of the programs are set in weekly structures. These are recommendations and do not need to be followed. You can slow down and go at your own pace, working on your weaknesses and moving on when you are ready.

Do I need any equipment to do the programs?

You do not need any equipment to start any of the programs. However, some of the training programs will utilise a bosu ball and/or surf skateboard.

How does the training work? What type of training is it?

If you'd like to know more about the training, you can watch our free program The OMBE Method and it will show you everything you need to know about how the training is run and how it benefits you.

What if I'm landlocked or only get to a beach every so often?

That is fine. all of the programs are created with that in mind. If a program includes water-based training, simply save it up until you have the chance to get to the beach.

How does the land-based training work? Shouldn't I just surf more?

The land-based training is designed to break patterns and add in the repetitions. This is vital in building the muscle memory and neurological pathways to learn and develop skills. The idea is by simulating surfing on land, we can rapidly develop these systems. When we enter the surf, we can further build upon them and allow our bodies to follow the muscle memory we have been training.

Yes, surfing is great but the amount of training in a 2-hour surf is minimal compared to 30 minutes of land training.

How does the water-based training fit in?

After you have been developing the muscle memory on land, you will need to start converting the training to replicating it in the water. The best way to do this is to set on focus and work on one change in your surfing and not several. Simplify it and allow yourself to see an improvement in one area.

The next best thing to do is to let go, don't bring stress into the ocean. Focus on having fun and trying to automatically repeat the muscle memory. Tension is the enemy of good technique and style.

I have been surfing for years and years, how do I replace my bad habits?

One at a time. The programs will help identify the bad habits, replace them and introduce a vital part of your training: trigger words. These are pattern interrupters that help you associate movement with words. As you say a trigger word and connect it to a movement, you are teaching your brain and body to repeat a movement based on that word. As you enter the surf, repeat these trigger words and slowly correct the bad habits.
