WHAT PREVIOUS CUSTOMERS SAY
Absolutely brilliant course! We completed the level 1 Surf Safety course today and it was exactly what we were looking for - every question I'd thought of but didn't know who to ask - Hanno not only had the answers but had pre-empted them.
Great in-depth theory followed by a super practical session.
I genuinely can't recommend this course highly enough - especially if you're looking to continue surfing or swimming outside of lifeguard season. Get booked, get safe!
"Hanno has such experience of breath-work and surfing and the training was very interesting - mentally and physically. The practical work made me realise why i wasn’t able to hold my breath for very long and why i would get so tired when paddling out through waves. I now have the tools to practice to improve my breathwork safely. Would recommend this to any surfers - any level! Thanks Hanno!”
“This one day course provides all the necessary theory, skills and practical experience to improve your confidence and performance particularly when dealing with stressful surf situations. Would certainly recommend this course and already making plans to put my new knowledge into action! Thanks again Hanno for everything !”
"This is definitely a worthwhile course for anyone looking to calm the mind, extend your knowledge of breathing yet ultimately to keep you safe in the surf !
It was a great day with brilliant land and water-based training and handouts for further practice. I feel more confident handling wipeouts in bigger waves now."
