Hey, Thanks for checking out my site and being interested in taking your surfing to the next level! When looking for a surf coach, you want someone with skill and experience. As a professional surfer, I can offer you both. I’ve competed at the highest levels for over 30 years. I’ve surfed against some of the best surfers in the world in some of the biggest contests. My experience as a professional surfer, which includes most recently winning the Gold Medal at the ISA World Championships in 2013, has served me well as a coach to surfers of all levels.
I’m passionate about helping surfers take their surfing to the next level. I’ve influenced and coached some of the most accomplished surfers in recent generations, including Matt Archbold, Shane Beschen, Carlos Munoz and Chelsea Tuach to name a few.
Getting Results As A Surf Coach
My most recent adventure in my coaching journey has been coaching Chelsea Tuach. Our coaching relationship began when she was 12 years old and in 2015, at the age of 18, she qualified for the world tour. Chelsea has taken the surfing world by storm, becoming the first ever surfer from Barbados to qualify for the tour and the first female surfer ever to be named “Surfer of the Year” by Eastern Surfing Magazine in it’s 14-year history! I am currently traveling with Chelsea as she competes on the tour, coaching her at every stop.
My coaching resume includes national teams as well. Countries like Barbados, Nicaragua, and the United States have sought out my expertise to take their national teams to the next level.
How I’ll Help You Take Your Surfing To The Next Level
As a surf coach, I believe champions are built not born, and I specialize in developing surfers to compete at all levels. I have a solid history of helping surfers improve their technique in ways that produce real results. I accomplish this by teaching them skills such as:
- How to read waves more effectively
- How to get optimal positioning during heats
- How to compete at an elite level by knowing what to do and when to do it, increasing their score
- How to train and care for their body for optimal fitness
- How to mentally prepare for contest in order to gain a competitive edge
- I also work on the technical development of the surfer through drills designed to develop better balance and timing
- I utilize technologies such as video and photography to evaluate and analyze ways each surfer can improve
There are many skills required to compete at the highest level. Often times, talent alone isn’t enough because there are so many talented surfers. Having the right coach can be the difference between winning and losing, succeeding or failing.
