When was the last time you really felt like you've improved? Like really improved?
You know, I'm talking about the last time you learned a new trick, or really felt your surfing step up to a whole new level?
It's funny isn't it, the one thing that makes surfing so fun and alluring (and so damn addictive) is actually getting better. Yet, how often do you really feel like you've improved?
It's sad I know but once you can get to your feet and trim it's no longer exciting. You want more...
You always want more, and that's fine, but since those early days when your progression milestones were getting smashed week on week, things have now started to taper off.
Your progression has ground to a halt, and you're now officially in the Stagnation Trap!
So, if you're one of the many surfers that find themselves in the Stagnation Trap, what should you do?
You kind of have three options.
Hiring a private surf coach is a great idea. You'll get one on one personal tuition, they'll be able find the blind spots that are holding your surfing back, and give you actionable advice to help you moving forward.
But, it's not always that straight forward...
Let me explain.
First up, private coaching is damn expensive -- often costing upwards of $200 per session. That's fine if you're made of money, but for the rest of us, that's just not really affordable.
Secondly, it's actually pretty hard to find a pro-level private surf coach. Just think about it for a minute, in the world there's like 500 guys and about 100 girls that really have the credentials to call themselves pro-level.
So, if you don't live in a town with access to someone of that level, then you're more than likely going to have to settle for less.
And thirdly, with private coaching, what happens at the beach stays at the beach. All those nuggets of wisdom are perfect in the moment, yet there's no way to bottle that information and store it for another time.
Much of it is lost in the moment, and you'll have no reference of the teachings to take with you to revisit.
Surf camps are a great way to meet like-minded people, make friends, hang out & party!
But there not very good places to really improve your surfing.
Usually, the coaches are travelling backpackers with little to no experience, and the tuition you'll receive will be catered to the mass market and not bespoke to you, and what's holding you back.
Go to a surf camp to party and have fun -- But, don't go if you're serious about learning to surf better.
YouTube is probably the biggest library of surf based tuition anywhere in the world. Simply type in your problem, and up comes a list of videos teaching you how to rectify it.
But, here's the thing.
These videos are made for the mass market, NOT for you personally.
You see, we all have these unique little traits and bad habits that we're totally unaware of. These are called blind-spots.
And, whilst learning from a YouTube video is great, they oftentimes fail to get to the root cause of the problem.
For that you'll need an expert.
What if there was a way to get expert coaching even if you lived in a land-locked city, or in a town with no pro-level coaches.
A way to get bespoke one-on-one coaching with a elite coach in a format you can take with your wherever you go, and reference time and time again?
I'm not talking about a one off thing that costs you a bomb, nah, I'm talking about an ongoing -- affordable -- coaching service that gives you personalised expert coaching, taking you from where you are right now, to the surfer you know you can be...
COACH IN A BOX is an interactive virtual private coaching service for surfers that want to improve FAST!
It doesn't have to be fancy so don't worry. We just need some rough footage of you surfing.
Once we have that, our expert coaches will dissect the footage to find out what's holding you back, where you can improve, and create a crystal clear vision for you to move to the next level.
We'll send the video analysis footage of you -- side by side with a pro -- with detailed, guided instructions. Each manoeuvre is broken down so you know exactly what you should be working on next time you hit the water.
Each week/month we'll revisit footage of your surfing to see where you've improved, and what you need to work on next. Bad habits will be identified and dealt with quickly, and your surfing will be pushed to new levels in record time.
Think about the last time you paid for private coaching. Think of how many waves you actually caught.
At best probably 6, and that's on a good day?
That's $25 per wave.
Now think about weather or not you can remember half of the tips and hacks you were told. Probably not.
With the use of Surf Video Analysis you are able to review and check the mistake you need to work on before headed out to each surf. Taking this fresh knowledge each time you enter the water, significally increases your ability to change and transform your bad habits.
You are able to maximize your bang for your buck. With each analysis you will be a able to film well over 6 waves. This enables us to make the corrections based upon your entire performance, rather than just a snippet in the water.
WINNER: COACH IN A BOX
Every split second there are so many weight adjustments, balance changes, feet shifts, weight distribution, rail lines, fin engagements ect each of the points are so nuanced and are happening at such a rapid rate and are so hard to pick up on the small (potential massively damaging )details.
Video coaching can zoom in frame by frame for incredibly accurate analysis which would pick up the subtle mistakes the naked eye can't pick.
WINNER: COACH IN A BOX
Don't get me wrong a professional surf coach is epic. But there are certain areas that they physically can't mirror like surf video analysis.
Most people are visual learners. And trying to teach a person though verbal communication isn't enough for them to understand what's require of them to progress forward.
When you see yourself alongside a pro and you are able to witness the exact movements and rations you need to be doing this can really help you grasp what's required.
To add to this, the learning stage in surfing is notoriously slow and frustrating so need more visual learning for people to fully understand whats expected of them.

Surfing 5 years
The best program I've encountered anywhere.
I've been on handful of surf trips. From surf camps to surf retreats and this is by far the most I've seen my surfing improve. This program is seriously in depth and if you put the work in, you will get the results.
Surfing 15 years
This exceeded my expectations.
I thought I'd get a few pointers here and there. I was not expecting such in depth split screen analysis for EVERY video. This program was well constructed and you can see Lauren is passionate about what she does.
Surfing 1.5 years
Finally! A surf program that actually makes you surf better.
There is nothing more I enjoy than surfing. But when you're not seeing any progression it starts to get a little frustrating.
I was reluctant to splash out on the 12 month program, but I'm so glad I did.
Working alongside Lauren as my personal surf coach was epic. We worked on every area of my surfing and the results speak for themselves.

After enrolling, you have access to this program for a 1,6 or 12 month period starting from your purchase date.= and the type of package you've purchased.
If you are unhappy after the first analysis, you are entitled to a percentage refund. This will be based upon my normal charge of $150 per video. The refund will be the difference to your purchase price and $150.
There is no system that can work 100% of the time for everyone. However, this program will only work if you do. If you buy this program, and aren't unwilling or can’t put in the work, then it's unlikely you will see the results.
This program is self-guided, but you’re not alone. You can follow this course at your own pace. Ideally, it's best to sign up for the 12 month coaching package, to get the most impact. You’re going to have access to community of peers who are taking this program with you for motivation.
