Trimming, bottom turns, high-lining, and cutting back are just a few of the many terms and techniques that come with advancing your skills in the water. The intermediate coaching session is here to build on your foundation and take your wave riding a step (or more) further.
These coaching sessions are intended for surfers that can paddle out and catch their own waves. Sessions are tailored for your needs and goals.
Intermediate Surfer Definitions: "An intermediate surfer is a surfer who can successfully paddle out alone at a familiar location and catch and ride waves to a logical finish frontside or backside, confidently using the three basic surfing turns – bottom turn, top turn and cutback." -Surfline's Nick Carrol
