Video Analysis 
Video analysis is one of the most progressive ways to improve your surfing.  This technique is used by the most elite and top professional surfers in the world and has seen proven results.

 Our coaches will film your surfing session in full from the beach, then bring your surfing into slow motion on our high definition screen located in the HSC facility, where they can go through your waves in detail.

Street + Skate Board Training

Surf conditions are constantly changing and don’t always let you work a specific skill.  Using skateboard practice creates a similar feeling of surfing and allows you to practice a maneuver until getting back in the water.

The use of skateboard ramps and street course will be used in weekly practice in order to maximize surfing progression.

Equipment and Surf Forecast Information

Equipment and preparation play a major role in making your session the best it can be.  It will be discussed in detail which boards are suitable for your ability and read forecasts effectively to get the best conditions possible.

Fitness + Mobility Training

Quality surf training assists in performing better in the water. By being prepared for a session, surfers should know specific warm-up and stretching techniques to avoid injury.  While on land, it is important to improve stamina and total shape with specific exercises that will boost your performance overall.

Air Training

The use of trampolines and air bags are common among gymnasts for the purpose of training your body and mind to feel orientated while spinning in the air.  Our coaches will assist students in the correct way to successfully land aerial maneuvers consistently.

Weekly and daily itinerary are subject to change based on surf conditions and forecasts.  

Students are responsible for bringing their own wetsuits, surfboards, sunscreen, sneakers and clothing to change into.  Hurley lycra rash guards, helmets and pads, and skateboards will be provided.

Coaching trips will be included to select ESA Competitions throughout the summer, allowing participants to utilize personal coaching during heats.
