One of the most important things when learning to surf.
Your surfboard. Not too long, not too small...
We just added 8 more to our fleet.

LET'S GO SURFING!
We receive many emails regards surfing lessons for young children.
We teach kids from as young as 3 but from this age up to 8-10 (depending on size/strength) They will be classed as private lessons.
Children at this age need personal attention and need to be guided in the correct waves. The other major factor is board control as the boards can be heavy and hard for the smaller kids to control, they will need a coach to do this for them. The ultimate reason is confidence. There is a fine line you don't want to cross when coaching young children and that is to make sure they don't get any heavy wipe outs. One heavy dunking can damage an infants confidence for years!
One to one tuition for the micro groms is highly recommended at smart surf.
Be smart / surf smart :)
Seb must of thought his dream winter would never end....A Carve front cover shot, a new sponsorship deal with Vans and Gunther Rohn surfboards, perfect waves all around Bali and Sumatra etc...etc...
Well unfortunately it has, deep in the jungle on the Mentawai islands.
Seb scored a RIPCURL 'wild card' entry into the 2013 Asian Mentawai pro series up agains the best asian surfers in the world and a few other wild card entries from various countries who were lucky enough to make selection. Seb went down in style in the 3rd round, finishing as the highest place westerner. Heres a few words from Seb when asked to comment about his overall experience and about the talents of the Asian surfers, he replied, “Even though I didn't make it past Round 3, this has been so much fun and a great experience for me, so I couldn't be much happier to be here right now. Before coming I knew some of the top guys like Marlon and Pepen and Garut, but seeing how many really good guys there are here did surprise me. Guys that I've never even heard of like Robot (Wayan Susiana) surf so good, its impressive. This has been a fantastic trip and I'm super happy to be here, and I'm glad we have a few days left to enjoy more of this place.”
Seb's flying back to the UK in a couple of weeks to hopefully maintain this run of good form and help our students progress their surfing at the Smart Surf School..
Well done bro. We're all proud of ya !
