New section: Ideal Developmental Journeys

I have added a new section to outline the usual journey surfers undertake when developing their surfing. Surfers develop their skills at different rates depending on their inherent abilities to learn new skills, sheer amount of time they can surf, and the type of waves they surf on a regular basis. Over time, surfers develop their skills and pass through a number of developmental stages on their way to their surfing potential. Each stage can be classified by the skills that a surfer can and cannot perform, and could be classified as follows:

  1. New Surfers
  2. Foundational Surfers
  3. Developing surfers
  4. Pre-elite surfers
  5. Elite surfers

Check out the different journeys in the “Training Programs” section of the Dashboard.
