“Surfing In Full Control” – video
As surfers develop, they should be trying to perform their manoeuvres in full control. This control allows a surfer to flow between manoeuvres without any hesitations or stoppages as they surf down the line. Control is created by surfers as they learn their foundation manoeuvres in the early stages of their development. Those surfers who are particular about performing their manoeuvres well, will maintain this attitude and with that, enhanced control, as they try to advance their surfing later in their development.

“Talent vs Skill”
Over the years I’ve heard many talk about talented surfers and their potential in the sport. But being talented doesn’t make future success inevitable, as our sport is littered with wasted talent – surfers who ripped as a 15 years of age, but faded into obscurity by their 20’s. Talent is a gift from our parents, skill is earned through hard work. Everyone can develop skill!
“Attitude – The Key To Better Surfing”
Surfers with a good attitude makes mistakes, but doesn’t dwell on them – riding their waves with an optimistic approach that helps them be successful in the future. This is the attitude of champions, and every surfer wanting to better their surfing, should emulate this way of thinking.
