STEP 1: 

Identify your surfing level, using the descriptions below.

  • Advanced +: Elite & strong surfers linking multiple, critical manoeuvres with excellent power, speed & control
  • Advanced: Surfers linking multiple manoeuvres consistently with good power, speed & control.
  • Intermediate / Advanced: Surfers linking small multiple manoeuvres with less consistently, reasonable power, speed & control.
  • Intermediate: Progressive surfers competently trimming on the wave face & developing small manoeuvres with limited consistently, power, speed & control.
  • Beginner: First time & part time surfers performing at a basic level catching white water & small unbroken waves.
