When you come to learn the basics of surfing with Hotzone private surf coaching I will ensure you get the best introduction to the sport possible matching your desires to the most appropriate conditions available that day. During our search together for the right waves, or before we start the lesson, we will have a brief talk about your history with other sports and your connection with the ocean. After this induction process we begin the lesson with information about the chosen surf spot at which you will get your first feeling of gliding with the waves. I will give you a brief introduction to the equipment we will use and the board I have selected for you. At this point we warm up and you will learn the difference between being caught by the waves and properly catching the waves. Once you can catch a wave by yourself we move on to the next step. Depending on how your timing is and the way you behave in the water -I will either leave out or add certain steps to get the most out of the session and raise your ability level and water confidence as much as possible whilst always having lots of fun along the way. We will end the session with an exchange of feedback from the day.
After all these years of teaching it still gives me the greatest of pleasures to water the seed of surfing and then follow how this seed grows into a fully developed and confident surfer. In some cases clients have even become competent surf teachers themselves and have opened surf schools around the world and help spread the passion.
