Encouraging, Supportive, and Experienced!

Coaches Chris and Ev are extremely experienced and very wise educators. They are able to share logical clear instruction and advice from their personal surf journeys as well as lessons they’ve learned as teachers. They are able to answer all questions in a supportive and honest manner with a good dose of lightheartedness and true passion for their craft.

Every beginner should listen to this show

Fantastic resource for beginners - really helps you to develop the right mindset for surfing. Still early in my surfing journey I learned so much about surfing fundamentals and surf etiquette. The coaches are so knowledgeable and give great advice, all the while keeping things light and fun!
