As surfers, if we want to improve, if we want to become better surfers and make the most of each wave, we need to take a look in the mirror and be honest with ourselves. It’s not until we take this external perspective that we will understand where we need to improve, the steps that we need to take to level up our surfing. But this can be a blow to our ego, seeing what we thought was a perfect turn look weak and gutless when viewed back on camera. However, it is in this moment of visual disappointment that the transformation will take place. Surfing progress can be made easier if we learn to assess our surfing from eight key areas and here at OMBE, we’ve treated the eight step surf assessment so you can start your journey to surfing mastery.
