LEVEL 3 SURF SKILL BUILDER

This level is for surfers who can consistently ride along unbroken waves but are now looking to understand how they can improve speed or turns.

At this level we combine water and land drills to help you understand and perfect the body dynamics needed to perform a certain skill. We also look at  surf fitness, equipment choices and talk about how to read waves better and understand the lines you can take.

Surfers at this level must be able to consistently ride waves and get out back at shoulder to head high. Lessons can be done as one offs although we would recommend for consistent improvement to do a number as you will benefit from your surf sessions being filmed and also flat day training on carver skateboards and online classroom skill lessons and video analysis.

Junior surfers are welcome as long as they have achieved level 2 certificates or can demonstrate competence via filmed video footage.

BOOKING OF THIS PRODUCT WILL RETURN ONLINE ON 1st of JUNE 2020. SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE. WE ARE CURRENTLY REDESIGNING OUR BOOKING PROCESS FOR CV19 TO ALLOW FOR SMALLER GROUPS, SPACING OF LESSONS AND COURSES AND NON CONTACT PROCEDURES.
