This is the final Ocean Warrior level, in which surfers are now ready to work towards creating and achieving their individual goals. This level is much more personalised; instructors help to create appropriate goals for each student alongside like-minded peers in their group. The focus is to build strong friendships in the community and continue to create the pathway to surfing confidently and independently. Our instructors use various techniques in coaching to target what students want to achieve. We focus on surf skills, building water confidence and correcting surf techniques. Instructors will use tools such as video correction, as well as surf-skate, breathing and fitness training to accelerate students’ progression.
