I’m all about following your dreams. And recently, a client, friend and neighbor of mine decided to venture out and start his own company, Surf Addict! So, here’s a shameless plug for an awesome local company serving SF’s surfing community.
Surf Addict is a San Francisco based company that provides clothing, accessories, information, resources and training for Action Sports.
And now, Surf Addict is offering, for the first time, a six week beginner surf training program, to be held at the Bay Club Financial District, in San Francisco, CA.
The Surf Clinic was carefully designed to incorporate in-class surf theory and athletic components, to enhance one’s surf conditioning and performance. Training sessions will integrate the following areas:
– Surf Environment, Equipment, Technique, Training, Safety & Etiquete
– TRX Suspension Training
– Core Training
– Flexibility Training
– Strength Training
– Cardiovascular Training
– Swim Technique
Many of the topics above will be delivered or led by surf world personalities such as:
- Jeff Clark, the Mavericks pioneer surfer and big wave rider from the Bay Area
- Alex Martins, Yoga teacher and big wave contest rider from Brazil
- Joao de Macedo former pro-surfer and author of the surf book “How To Be A Surfer“.
These surfers are known to have surfed world class waves such as Pipeline, Waimea Bay and Mavericks. They will share their unique knowledge and legacy and will be available to connect with a small group, with one on one interaction on scheduled clinic days.
At the end of the clinic, in addition to being able to ride their first wave, students will be left with a strong framework to build their new surfing experience on and bring their surfing to the next level. During the graduation reception, to be held at Surf Addict’s headquarters, students will receive a Surf Addict Surf Clinic certificate of completion and will share the celebration with local pro-surfers and other members of the surf community.
Surf Addict will donate a percentage of proceeds from the Surf Clinic to SurfAid International and Save the Waves Coalition.
