Intermediate Surf Coaching Clinics –  Year 2022 dates now available!

If you’d like to improve your technique to surf with more precision and style, then you’ve come to the right place!

Our Intermediate Surf Coaching Clinics are designed to take your surfing to the next level. When you combine one of the world’s most rippable waves with a proven coaching system in uncrowded perfect conditions, the progression you can make is proven to be remarkable.

Clarke who attended our Clinics described it perfectly “I’ve improved my surfing more in 7 days than the last couple of years.”

Our surf coaching clinics are designed with your progression and enjoyment in mind, offered in a relaxed atmosphere, to develop your physical and mental abilities while also having a great time!

Our 2022 Surf Coaching Clinics will be held over 6 weeks with a 1-week duration per clinic. During the coaching sessions, surfers will be split up to surf at Macaronis and to visit the surrounding breaks aboard our high-speed aluminium Catamaran, Surfalot.

Each participant will enjoy their own private room with queen or twin beds, and you can bring along your partner, or the whole family if you’d like to. Regular services, facilities, and activities are available to keep everybody entertained, having a great time with exciting things to do.
