ABOUT HPC SURF CAMPS
High performance coaching with Waves School of Surfing. WSS’s main passion is to increase the depth of junior surfing in SA. If you can increase the depth then you’ll automatically raise the level of surfing in SA. WSS’s style of coaching is very much focused on the technical aspect of the sport as well as the competitive.
There are five main areas that WSS encourages or focuses on with its student.
- Competition surfing (heat structure and time management)
HPC Weekend Camps is where most the improvement and learning happens.
A basic full day HPC consists of a 3-4 hour surf in the morning then we break for lunch and video analysis. After video analysis and lunch we have another session where we work on certain areas we identified in class. While we doing video analysis WSS also has score sheets to have filled in, this helps with,
- Consistency (surfing to the best of your ability to the average of the conditions at a certain spot)
- How to score yourself
- Technical improvement notes.
- Heat Structure
During the afternoon session WSS will take photos, which get posted to Facebook.
Depending on the surf condition we may also add a theory session where we discuss “the secret” to competitive surfing.
Score Sheet Download is available on the site, it encompasses everything I learnt to be able to surf a successful heat consistently.
