"Yea your online course definitely made me rethink my surf stroke as well as my swim stroke. Helped me get heaps of extra waves especially on the big days at the current-y points we have.  Also got me into this screamer in Northern Sumatra. Thanks for being so helpful :)"

Science Based Coaching

Concepts and techniques taught are based in science, from over 20 years of both primary and secondary research.  You'll learn WHY you should move a certain way instead of just being told to do it.  When you understand the "why" you have faster recall and longer retention, both in your brain and in your kinetic movement.

"I took the online paddling course and after that even though I’m 67 years old & ride a 5 ft surfboard, I had several guys out in the water, comment to me on how fast I was paddling. And I was getting to the outside faster than them. Best of all, my shoulders weren’t thrashed after every surf.  Thanks so much for all the great information & technique."

"I have been really taking what you taught in the Workshop to heart and am feeling the glide like never before. I've finally got a handle on getting down to the propulsive phase quickly, which I find is really facilitated by the act of lengthening my waterline and getting my hands in the water earlier. It's great to see all these changes feed off each other resulting in more glide and power!"

"I had just two months to prepare for my surf trip. Before my first session with Rob, I was hardly catching any waves. I’d tire easily and my shoulders were always in pain. After my first session however, I experienced absolutely zero shoulder pain and increased my paddle efficiency by 22% in just one hour with Rob. Over the next 2 months, I practiced the assigned drills and had 2 more sessions. I continued to increase my paddle efficiency and surfed 5 days a week without any shoulder pain. Oh, not to mention I was catching heaps more waves!

In just 2 months after working with Rob, I went to the Mentawais on a 12 day boat trip where I surfed 2-3 sessions per day, caught tons of amazing waves, and had the time of my life. Without Rob, there’s no way I would’ve been physically ready or confident on my trip. If you want to “hack” surfing or even if you’re already surfing at an advanced level, you need to work with Rob— he’s a game changer!  Can’t thank him enough!"

"Just wanted to say that your videos on paddling have literally changed my entire surfing life. I was so very frustrated with my anemic wave catching inabilities.  I’m a big, strong, athletic guy…..and I missed waves all the time…I couldn’t seem to paddle into waves with any regularity…

Then I sign up for your online course.  WTF!  I’d been doing so many things so wrong.  I studied your vids.  Put them into play when I got into the water.  INSTANT improvementI am now a speed burner paddler, and I catch nearly every wave that I paddle for.

I followed your instruction to the letter and my surfing has improved exponentially - all due to your techniques.

I had given serious consideration to chucking surfing just prior to trying your video lessons.  I was that badly frustrated with my lousy wave catching performance.  Now, and due solely to your training videos, I catch tons of waves!  Thank you so very much."

"I came to Rob for help with constant pain in my right rotator cuff and bicep tendons.  Every session was painful, and I wanted to avoid surgery down the line. Fortunately, a friend told me about Surfing Paddling Academy. Rob was immediately helpful, and very quickly, I am paddling without pain and paddling faster!

It is so amazing to be able to surf pain-free! With Rob's guidance, I'm now working on refining my paddling for more power and efficiency. I am amazed at the wealth of information and direction I've received, first from our session and now from the videos and further notes he provides.

I highly recommend working with Rob to maximize your paddling, and/or to find a way to work with shoulder and arm injuries. I can't tell you how much his course meant to me.  Changed my surf life!"
