Surfing - one of the most desirable yet difficult sports to master...until now.
In How To Surf, ex-pro junior surfers Ryan Baohm & Kale Brock take you through the fundamental teachings of surfing.
In the course, the underpinning skills of surfing, including paddling & water negotiation, wave selection, taking off & weight transfer, are emphasised with the knowledge that when these are mastered, progression through surfing's tiers becomes much, much easier & efficient.
Many surfers would say that it takes years to get to an advanced level of surfing, but Brock & Baohm disagree. With the right coaching of the right skills in the right order, & most importantly with the correct & safe application, advanced surfing can be achieved in a short time.
