"I can already picture myself in certain situations applying that confidence and just being calm ahead of time from one session. It’s just one less thing to worry about. It’s like having your fins on your board already! You don’t have to worry about putting your fins on, they're there."

How is this different to other online courses?
The Ocean Warrior Course has been designed by world class athlete’s that live and breathe these situations on a daily basis.
The problem is, no surfers have ever really been taught these skills. It’s always been, people that don’t surf themselves teaching technical things about how to hold your breath. And guess what? Those skills are great, but they don’t often work when you’re in the surf. Your dealing with things like, currents, turbulence, high heart rates, your board and so many other things. What’s applicable in one arena doesn’t always carry over to another.
Often these water courses are designed by ‘one’ expert or can be simply one person’s opinion. The Ocean Warrior Course has been created by a group of elite water experts from a variety of areas working together to create the most realistic and success driven course available.
As a result, you get a combined 100+ years experience from some of the very best watermen, lifeguards and big wave surfers in the world.
