High Performance Surfing
Port Macquarie Surf School regularly holds High Performance surf lessons targeted to advanced surfers who want to compete in surfing events.
Port Macquarie’s setting on the Mid North Coast of NSW is an ideal training area as it boasts a multitude of different breaks and wave types that allow us to tailor to the specific needs of any surfer.
These are elite surfing lessons but they’re not just for locals. We have surfers from all over Australia travelling to Port Macquarie to attend sessions with us.
It’s not all about “in the water” skills either. Our High Performance lessons involve fitness programs and training schedules to prepare your body for the rigors of competition surfing. We also include visual analysis through DVD presentation as a valuable tool for technique correction. Our experienced coaches will even provide mental preparation techniques and heat strategies to really get you in the best competition form possible. High Performance surfers will be set unique programs that will cater to their individual abilities, talents and goals.
