The Art Of Surfing (TAOS) will be running a coaching course in Piha for all junior surfers in the region who are looking to take their surfing to a higher performance level.
Date – 8 Dec 2019
8:30 am – 3:00 pm
Most junior surfers develop bad habits while learning. If left unchecked, these habits can limit their progression through those crucial development years.
Our coaching programmes help surfers identify how to correct their technique using the latest technology to demonstrate training methods aimed at eliminating performance flaws.
We will meet at the Surf Club at Piha Beach on Marine Parade. From there we’ll find the best bank to surf for the group’s level and avoid crowds as much as possible.
If the surf is un-surfable at Piha due to too small or large surf the course will be moved to the most suitable beach within a 2-hour drive so guest must be prepared to drive on the day if need be.
