Understanding comes before action

Improving your surfing can be difficult because the ocean is constantly changing. The first step in improving your surfing is improving your understanding of it.

By understanding how to read the ocean, adapt the right mental approach, how to move efficiently with your body and how this all connects to your equipment, your surfing will flow and you will begin to feel more every surf.

Learn to feel the movements

Through land-based training, you can start to work through the movements, simulating surfing, making adjustments and understanding the difference between good and bad technique. This gives you instant feedback, allowing you to build muscle memory and feel how the movements should feel.
