It took place on 25th and 26th March 2017 the Surfskate Instructor Course (Level 1). The first dedicated to the training of surfskate instructors with the surfskatecoaching.com method.
Organized into a theoretical classroom and practical lessons, the course was held at the Secret Spot Whitezu (www.whitezu.com) equipped with all Surfskate Urban Wave models: Pro Training 16 meters and Backyard Models. Here the future instructors have been training followed by Master Coach Alessandro Servadei (www.surfskatecoaching.com).
The course applies a fast and effective teaching method to teach surfing and make athletes more technical using surfskate skateboards and wave-shaped structures. Participants spent two intense days of exercises with surfskate and now will have a year to prepare and pass the examination, which will make them instructors in every respect.
The surfskate skateboard can be used as a "cruiser" to carve flat on the streets and try the emotion to come out of a Bottom Turn in instinctive manner; but the true potential of this tool are enhanced by relying on a coach which soon will take off your surfing level leading you, in a few days, to perform deepest Bottom Turn and explosive Re-entry.
The course format has proved successful; the professionalism of the lessons was interspersed with moments of convivial tasting of organic food products, piadina and wine, helping to create an atmosphere of surf spot throughout the weekend.
