What a week!

What a week!

5 days, 10 lessons and 6 budding wannabe surf instructors ready for their Beach Lifeguard and ISA Surf Coach qualification. Solid effort.

With varying surf experience between them (some of them having never surfed before) these guys were thrown in at the deep end, spending 4 hours a day in the water homing their skills ready for their qualifications at the end of the week.

Starting with a full beginner talk at the start of the week and daily video analysis of their sessions, by day 5 the group were paddling out and catching green waves out the back turning left and right. Amazing to see the progression throughout the week.

The boot battle is over!

I think it is safe to say that the battle of the boot is well and truly over!

With the Westward Ho! sea temperature now at a tropical 14 degrees, and still climbing, this familiar struggle any cold water surfing fanatic must go though is now a thing of the past!

There is no easy way to get your foot into a wetsuit boot. Everyone has their preferred method from plastic bags to brute force. This is young surfer Issac came for surfing lessons with me a few weeks ago and is using the 'lay on my back and get mum to put my boot on' technique. A classic!
