Surf Happens Offers Advanced Coaching

In this day and age where free and contest surfing are merging, we focus on a fundamentalist approach that builds into the repertoire. Our goal is to help surfers learn how to play the contest game so well that they are able to free surf within the constraints of the competitive box. We teach by analyzing the best in the business while working with professionals within the sport to provide the most comprehensive free and competitive surf training available.

Our ASC program focuses on the mastering of the art of competition, establishing proper goal setting practices, cross training, technique analysis, perfecting new maneuvers, and career development. We offer weekend workshops as well as progressive six-week series.
