My surf coaching has taken me to many different places around Australia and the World. I have been lucky enough to meet some great people along the journey and surfed some amazing waves. I haven't been every where yet but I am working on it. I will try to share some of my experiences on this blog.

has come a long way over the last few years. If you needed an edge in the
competitive arena you may have sourced a coach. These days more and more people
are just trying to get more fun out of their surfing. Equipment, paddling, manoeuvres, surf travel are just some aspects covered in my programs. For me surfing is about fun, getting frustrated in the water because of a technique flaw is certainly not fun. Coaching makes a difference.
coaching fraternity is quite small and we all share our information. Martin
Dunn, Surfing Australia's coaching director has been a great source of
information for me and we often talk about different strategies to improve a surfer’s
technique. I use surfcoach.com and attend Surfing Australia's Green Room
Coaching conference to keep me at the forefront of coaching techniques. I
regularly mentor a couple of South American coaches and enjoy that challenge,
including the Spanish lessons.
A good friend
and work colleague at Island Surf School is Simon Chipper we collaborate on
many coaching programs. Simon’s extensive travel in Indonesia as well as other
exotic locations with world famous photographer Ted Grambeau on RipCurl photo
shoots enhances my knowledge base not only in coaching delivery but in video and
photographic technology as well.
