Common Questions About the Trip

Is it for beginners?
No. This is Indonesia. It’s absolutely surfable at an intermediate level, but for beginners, not so much unfortunately.
Swell Size?
We expect consistent surf in the 2-4 foot range with a couple pulses of 6foot and potentially above. Perfect conditions to learn better technique… and still grab a few barrels! 
Will we be running another one any time soon?
No. I work only with the best technique coaches, so it comes down to scheduling. The earliest we may run another coaching trip will be 2021.
What do you learn?
You get coaching from myself and Clayton Nienaber (world class technique coach and surfboard shaper). Everyday is a mix of coaching, video analysis, movement training, fun, surfing, tissue release, yoga, Foundation Training, in the water coaching, more surfing, lots of food, nutritional coaching…… Better health and better surfing.
