looking for intermiediate/advanced surf coach

Post by closedout » Tue Mar 02, 2010 12:49 pm

Hi,
Perhaps my quest is not uncommon. I am getting old (35), started surfing late (30), but still have minor delusions of grandeur ... I wanna rip. Grind away on eastern suburb (sydney) close-outs 4-7 days a week, study whatever surf guides (e.g. the Nick Carrol books) i come across, and visualize sweet backside turns at work. But in truth, my backside sucks (was horrified by pics of my surfing Ulu's last fall), and I aint exactly hacking it up on my front either. I've put in the dog work ... strong paddler, ride a wide variety of boards and have a very consistent take-off ... but I am self taught and always seem to be a step behind. I know some coaching would do a world of good. I got the time, dedication and a bit of money .... but where's the coach? I've asked around ... nada. There's a market neiche here i reckon. Just looking to speed up the learning curve. Perhaps a couple weekends on the northern beaches, some video and an honest evaluation. Any takers/advice?
Kind regards,
Paul

Hamish Nelson also here on the Nthn Beaches.

Pm me for his mobile.

Don't know of anyone down your way.

Hamish and Barton are very busy with the groms though, Not sure who helps 30+ surfers.

A mate Nick laidlaw has started up a fitness coaching business structured around surfing.

Pm for his details as well if you wanna.

Riding a wide range of boards may not be helping you. As an example if you are swapping from thrusters to quads, shorties to fishy things etc it won't help your surfing if your goal is to become a good high performance surfer.

Stick with a standard shorty in most conditions if you want to develop your high performance surfing ability.

To those who provided helpful advice ... my sincere thanks.

To the others ...
