Jarrod is a long time on again off again surfer (inconsistent busy working etc), He has an indo trip planned ( to suitable waves for his level) and he wanted to get a little more focused/prepared leading up to the trip. As with all surfing students (at any level) sometimes we have to go back in order to move forward. He has his own hard board and can actually catch waves etc, but we needed better technique and habits, hence we went back to basics on a soft board. (A good student is willing to do this & often leads to improving surfing faster)
The key parts to his surf training have been the following..
Equipment review, setting up to catch waves, paddling and stand up technique, feet positioning and overall surfing centre of balance.
In order to build Jarrods wave count for his indo trip, specific surfing drills were incorporated to get his "surfing cardio" up, with the goal of him maintaining good form when he was tired.
