GOAL SETTING DRILL
Drill: We will first ask you to surf a twenty minute heat and try to achieve the goals decided upon. Your coach with look at the biomechanics of your surfing & set achievable goals for your ability & the conditions on the day.
BOTTOM TURN DRILLS
Drill: We will send you out into the surf for 20 minutes. Ask them to perform the best quality bottom turns they can do on the waves they catch. Score the bottom turns:
3 points for an excellent bottom turn (good lean, hand touching the wave face, flexed body)
2 points for an average bottom turn (good lean, straight body)
1 point or a poor bottom turn (poor lean, straight body)
Drill: We will send you out into the surf for 20 minutes. Ask them to perform the best quality re-entries they can do on the waves they catch. Score the re-entries:
3 points for an excellent re-entry (surfboard is vertical as it impacts the lip) 2 points for an average re-entry (surfboard has an angle pointing down the line as it impacts the lip)
1 point for a poor re-entry (surfboard doesn’t impact with the lip with little power and verticalness. This type of re-entry is characterised by the surfer getting momentarily “caught” as they come off the top of the wave )
Drill: We will send you out into the surf for 20 minutes. Ask them to perform the best quality cutbacks they can do on the waves they catch. Score the cutbacks:
3 points for an excellent cutback (surfboard rebounds vertically off the foam rebound)
2 points for an average cutback (surfboard impacts with the foam but not with any height)
1 point for a poor cutback (surfboard “taps the foam” or doesn’t impact with the foam at all)
Drill: We will send you out into the surf for 20 minutes. Score each wave normally out of 10 points. Award 3 bonus points for every successfully completed “layback” snap. These additional bonus points are to encourage the surfers to attempt the target manoeuvre.
The technique for performing the “layback” snap is” Perform a quality bottom turn Lean backwards before reaching the top of the wave, touch the wave face with the trailing hand, and continue to look down the line. The momentum from the preceding bottom turn will re-centre the surfer over the surfboard

Just before hitting the lip or foam, forcefully lift your arms above your
head to create a “lift” force

you find it necessary
Land in a low stance to handle the impact forces on landing
