TESTIMONIALS

" I went to Morocco for a surf coaching week in February with Seaside Surf. The region is ideal as the climate is warm and has many spots with good waves for my intermediate surf level.

 

l learned so much from Hucine and Momo, the surf coaches. They took the time to give simple but effective tips, both in the water and on land. on top of that, we had several video analysis sessions which is a great tool to improve your surfing as well.

 

Besides the surfing, we really enjoyed staying at the guesthouse. Cosy place, healthy food and warm people. It was great!"

Unique methodology

We need to be honest! The art of surfing is difficult to master and the proces a long the way can be frustrating. Unlike conventional surf schools, we have designed a unique and holistic methodology that helps you to get better in surfing and make advance in a faster and safe way while having ton’s of fun. Our logical and analytical approach will give you also the tools to help you to continue making progress after your stay with us. We offer two programs: one for the beginner with no or very little experience and one for the intermediate surfer who is able to paddle through the white water and catch unbroken waves. Our holistic approach consists of nine key elements to take your surfing to the next level while having tons of fun and laughter.

Pre-travel workouts

Before the coaching week, we will ask you to complete a questionnaire, so that we can assess your level, points to work on and expectations. In preparation for the surf coach week you will receive a training schedule to train at home, so that you have a good stamina and paddle power once on location. With more power and condition, you will take even more waves and improve your surfing.

IN-water coaching

2

Typically we do two surfsessions a day where the surf coach will take you to surf spots suited for your level. The coaches will explain how the spot works and paddle out with you to boost your confidence and help you to deal with other surfers. The in-water coach will help you to catch more waves with a proper positioning and timing for take off.

VIDEO Analysis

Seeing yourself surfing is the most efficient way to make progress. We make several times a week video recordings of your session. After the surfing session, there is a video analysis to address which points you need to work on to progress your surfing. Bring a USB stick, because afterwards, you get to take the recordings home for free.

POOL SESSIONS

4

In the confined environment of a pool you will learn the technique to paddle in a efficient way. That's important as surfing is merely paddling. The better your technique the easier and with more confident you will surf and catch more waves. You will also pratice your duckdive and or turtle roll, as way to paddle faster to the line-up. Duck diving is not easy, but the poolsessions will help you to master that technique in a short amount of time.

Surf skate sesssions

5

Learning your first turns and manoevres on the water can be overwhelming. A efficient way to boost your muscle memory and break down manoevres in easy steps can be done in a fun and playfull way through surf skating. You will be able

to use the new learned skills instantly on your surfboard. You will learn way faster. During the surf skate workshops you will learn to generate speed and make turns.

DRYLAND SIMULATIONS

6

Making progress in your surfing requires a good surf technique. Without a proper technique it wil be hard to shred. Or dryland simulations are your rescue to gain muscle memory. Your coach will work on land, so you have no distractions, and simulate manoeuvres with you. Repeating these maneouvres on land will make them way easier to execute while surfing. Dryland simulations are key to make faster progress so you will rip in no time.

Theory classes

Many elements are more accessible to explain with a TV screen and a whiteboard, rather than on the beach. Several times a week there are theory lessons about the essential aspects of surfing: swell and surf forecast, security and watersafety, surfboards designs and surf etiquette.

SURFFIT WORKOUTS

8

The body is your vessel to surf! You can improve your surfing through landbased surffit workouts. A poor technique could be a limitation in your surfprogression. Our surfcoaches and personal trainers will guide you through surfflex and surfstrength workouts to find back physical balance, power and mobility within your body. Once at home you can continue to practice these excersises as they don't require fitness equipment and are solely based on body weight workouts.

fear management

9

Surfing can be intimidating and fear could block you to make progress. You will learn a watersafety protocol that will help you to build confidence in the water and that will help you to deal with wipe-puts. Our coaches go with you in the water and will always have an eye on you. A great way to manage your mindset are breathing excercises. You will learn breathing techniques to paddle more efficiently and to stay calm and chill while surfing, even when the waves get a little bit bigger.
