Video Analysis


Online coaching 1:1 to help you improve your surf technique personalized feedback and insights on a surfer's performance. By reviewing recorded footage, the coach can identify your strengths and weaknesses and provide specific techniques and exercises to help you to improve your skills.

Video analysis also provides a convenient and accessible way to you to receive coaching and feedback without the need for in-person sessions.

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.

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.

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

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 efforts, 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 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 smake 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
