Surf School

Advanced Class Program

To be in this group you don't need to be world champion. You just need to know the basics. We developed this group because many people came to us and had surfed before. If you are one of these you don't have to go through all the basics again. We created the advanced group for you.

The focus of this group is on your individual surfing. After you learn how to take off on a wave and start to develop your own style, your specific surf problems need to be pointed out immediately so that you develop quickly and properly through individual advice. The 2 weekly video analysis sessions will be invaluable at this stage.
