HOW TO SURF PROGRAM – FOUNDATIONS OF SURFING

WHAT SURFERS ARE SAYING

  • My coaching experience with head coach Clayton made a huge positive impact on my surfing! Clayton has a keen eye for flaws in technique and he corrected a bunch of mistakes I was making and I wasn’t even aware I was doing them. This led to having more fun free surfing, better results and way fewer injuries.

  • Without Clayton as my coach I would not have come close to making it onto the WCT. He has a really unique style of coaching and explained things to me in such simple terms (although sometimes brutally honest!). To this day I still use techniques that I learned from Clay.

  • Completing the Maven Surfs 'Advanced Surfing Program' has seriously boosted the level of surfing progression in our club. Learning the tips and tricks of the pro surfers, identifying bad habits, correcting our technique and training our muscle memory with a number of training drills and exercises for surfing at our highest level. Without the help and support from Maven Surf our university would not have placed in the finals at the uni games surfing tournaments.

    One of the most beneficial things a surfer with 2-20 years of experience can do! Analysing your technique and learning the theory behind high performance surfing really gives you the foundation and tools to progress your surfing

    I first became aware of Clayton Nienaber when he took part in a podcast with Surfmastery. The way Clayton explained his approach to surfing and numerous techniques really resonated with me. I became interested in learning more from Clayton and have completed the online Foundations of Surfing program. The way the foundations are explained is unique as it is simplified, easy to understand and relate to. In particular the techniques explained regarding the bottom turn, hand positioning and wave power zones will immediately change your approach to surfing. It had an immediate impact on my surfing. Highly recommended and looking forward to seeing how the advanced manoeuvres are explained in the next online package.
