Intermediate Surf Coaching
Intermediate Surf Coaching – helping you progress to the next level
Our Gold Coast Intermediate Surf Coaching Sessions are part of our Gold Coast Surf Coaching Program and are perfect for those that have mastered the basics and are wanting to progress through this tricky stage.
This Intermediate Level is for those surfers that are surfing out the back and paddling onto and competently taking off on small to medium size waves (chest to about head high). In our Gold Coast Intermediate Surf Coaching program, our experienced instructors will work with you to begin to utilise the whole of the wave, to surf top to bottom in the more critical area of the wave, to work on your bottom turn and start to develop competent top turns.
Understanding positioning in the ocean and what waves to be paddling for is an important skill that needs to be developed and so your coach will be working with you to ensure you understand more complex surf awareness and ocean skills.
There are a number of common mistakes that an intermediate surfer can fall into making. Our Gold Coast Intermediate Surf Coaching Sessions will work with you to eradicate these mistakes.
Common mistakes for the Intermediate Surfer can include:
- Surfing through the middle of the wave
- Performing a soft bottom turn
- Letting the wave provide all the power and not generating additional power on the wave
- Getting lost in the ocean and sitting in the wrong position to catch the better waves
- Not understanding how the ocean and surf works
- Surfing and using unsuitable equipment
- Minimal extension and compression through the execution of manoeuvres
- Minimal rotation through the execution of manoeuvres
When you surf in our Gold Coast Intermediate Surf Coaching Program, our coaches will work with you on what you are doing well and what you are maybe not doing so well to improve your confidence and performance. We will be working with you to overcome any of the above or other deficiencies or errors you may have in your surfing and boost your surfing to the next level.
For those surfers who want to practice their surfing on land between sessions, when they can’t get to the beach or when the waves are not happening or just for a cool board to get around on, we use and recommend the StreetBoardz range You can check out our page showing all the different styles and options available
For surfers wanting their own foam board, here is some info on what we can assist with.
Also as surfers progress and improve and then move into the line up, it is vital they understand Surf Etiquette, that is the basic rules of surfing.
