Improve Your Surfing on the SmoothStar Surf Trainers
We have been using the SmoothStar Surf Trainers during most of our surf coaching retreats in Indonesia. It’s been a game changer for all to improve our surfing, especially while combining it to the Power Surf techniques taught by Rodrigo Machado.
Rodrigo has done several free live broadcast on youtube during this time of global quarantine. We have extracted in each of his videos the English parts while making some cuts to it for an easy to watch video tutorial.
Those 3 videos will bring you through the fundamental surf movements that will act as a pillar to improve your surfing. Those videos are good for all surf levels from beginners that want to learn how to perform basic manoeuvres, to intermediate and advanced surfers who want to improve their foundations to bring more flow, power and precision in their surfing.
