Intermediate Surf Coaching Clinics offer a unique opportunity for Intermediate surfers to quickly improve their surfing skills, technique and knowledge of equipment with surf coaching provided by Clayton Surf Coaching at one of the world’s great surf breaks, Macaronis.

Macaronis is the ideal venue due to year round day to day consistency, breaking perfectly in all tides and most wind conditions, and due to the speed and angle at which the wave breaks, the length of ride, and forgiving mainly flat bottom reef.

Clayton provides video play back and real time surf coaching, theory sessions focusing on surfing equipment in relation to performance, and loads of out of the water technique drills, enabling intermediate surfers to quickly improve their surfing skills and technique with background knowledge of equipment in relation to performance.

The event is aimed at being a fun and educational experience for any age group. We’re pretty sure there is no other wave on earth where a surfer can improve their surfing ability so quickly. The consistency and perfect breaking speed and angle of the wave (much like a surfers half-pipe), makes this the perfect venue for practicing maneuvers, turns, or working on technique.

Regular services and facilities are available, with surf photography and coaching included as a part of the package.
