We ask schools to consider this analogy when choosing the right surf coach/school for your group. Who is more suited to run an effective lesson, the student learning how to be a good teacher or the master/professor. If you want a master coach in the water working with your group then you've come to the right surf school.

Proven track record and experience makes the big difference to the safety and fun of a group surfing lesson. Specific effective coaching details are built into the Archysurf program leading to the best experience possible for students.

Group lessons require real surfing and coaching experience, this serves well when reading surfing conditions and matching group dynamics to suit. A lot of these surf schools use what we call guides and call them coaches. The lessons are unorganized with students scattered everywhere, causing unnecessary collisions and are less effective. On top of this they lack the understanding in technique that makes a huge difference to students success and safety.

Consider this, not all waves are the same and definitely not all white wash waves are the same. There is subtle variants in the shape/type of white wash waves that make the difference to safety and the success of a student standing up. Archysurf applies true knowledge down through the ranks of coaches, true surfers with real experience for good judgment in subtleties (such as reading and choosing the correct wave for students to surf on).

Head surf coaching Luke Archibald is in the water on every lesson, he personally oversees the lessons to ensure things are running at the best possible quality.
