This course will help you to progress from the intermediate to the advanced wave, in just one day. It is ideal for anyone who wants to try the advanced waves for the first time (though you must already have that intermediate competency). It consists of a Level 4 (intermediate wave) and Level 5 (advanced wave) surf lesson. Your instructor will be by your side the whole way, to ensure you get your waves for the ultimate ride. Each lesson has 30 minutes on land followed by one hour in the water, with a break so you can refuel in our restaurant.
3 hrs same day, morning (Level 4 & level 5) Ideal for anyone that wants to go on the advanced waves for the first time.
This is a great package if you are a competent surfer but feel like you have hit a performance plateau.
The Advanced Development Day consists of two surfing sessions with video analysis as well as a land simulation session.
Video analysis is the best way to accurately assess your movement and show you the best way to improve. Your highly skilled surf instructor will film your first hour surfing session and then bring you back to the Surf Academy to go through your waves.
Following the video analysis your instructor will have identified the main areas for development. The second part of your day will use Streetboardz (specialised skateboards used for surf training – also sold in our onsite retail shop) to recreate movements on land so that you learn the correct movement and improve your muscle memory.
By the time you hit the waves for your last surfing session you should see a marked improvement in performance.

10.30 – Initial briefing and assessment in the Surf Academy
11.00 – 12.00 surfing
