How it Works

Sending the videos

We recommend recording your surf video before booking your session. Once you’re ready, email us and we’ll send you instructions on how to send your films to us.

You’ll have a 1:1 video conference with your coach on the day of your appointment. He will go over your footage and put together a video presentation for you. He’ll walk you through the areas where you can improve and he’ll wrap things up by providing you with some homework to work on until your next coaching session.

You will receive a recording of your surf coaching session so you can review it at any time.

Private Analysis


These online sessions allow you to submit video footage of yourself to be analysed by one of our expert coaches, then you will have a 1:1 video conference with us to discuss how you can improve your surfing.

If you can’t provide any film of yourself surfing, we’ll use instructional footage to break down any skill or area of surfing that you choose to focus on. Catching waves, cutbacks, bottom turns, barrel setups, as well as other popular requests.

The duration of the online session is approximately 60-90 minutes.

Group Seminars

Social Media

Wave forecasting, ocean reading, surf etiquette, body preparation, surf competition, surf equipment, contest judging and how to be the best «coach» for your kids (for parents who want to help their kids) are just some of the topics discussed in group seminars. Dates, times, and topics are announced on Instagram.

If you’d like to be notified when seminars are going to be released, please contact us.

Seminars and lectures for surf clubs, schools, and universities can be organized upon request.

Elite Surf Coaching


Ivan inspires a lot of confidence in the water. He is a conscientious coach, who doesn’t let me pass to another level until I don’t master the actual level I am on. After months of effort, I have more speed, my manoeuvres are more powerful and I have even more fun in the water. León Agurruza

Daniel, my son has improved a lot in the coordination with the carver sessions, and thanks to the video analysis he is learning to read the wave. Highly recommended classes to whoever wants to improve their technique. Charles Parker

Ivan is a frank, vital and caring person, as well as very professional. With him, we make sure that all the family will be happy, so what we need to know before organising our holidays, is where will he be! Familia Bernuezo
