    Going surfing is finally putting a smile back on my face. Who would have thought technique changes could result in such massive improvement. I cannot thank the team and coaches at the HPC enough!

    I got a ton out of my HPC experience! Thanks for the superb video analysis and coaching skills. I will return again for another performance tweak some time in the future. Thanks guys!

    My whole weekend at the HPC was a fantastic experience. The facilities are awesome and the coaches were epic and really personable. Especially loved the arvo skate sessions and we were lucky to score waves which was a real bonus. I left the HPC with some great memories and 4 or 5 great tips for improvement. Every surf now sees me doing my homework. I will be back.

    From first to last session, the kids where treated like athletes. It was all about achievable progression, surf stoke and fun. The video sessions in particular were detailed, with an emphasis on the basics while being mindful of advanced techniques. Jack’s progression was quite obvious from first to last session.

    It is state of the art. With the beach straight out in front of the venue it is perfect. You can work on all cross-training aspects in the pool and gym and get treated by professional staff. It is just all-encompassing and the best facility.

    The Surfing Australia High Performance Centre at Casuarina Beach is like having the Australian Institute of Sport on the Tweed Coast.

    Absolutely loved it. Can't wait to come back and start working on new aspects of my surfing. I confidently say that without the camp I would probably be surfing at the same level for the next 10 years just like I have been for the past 10. I now have some idea of how to progress rather than just making the same mistakes and not being aware.

    Really great. Adam identified where we were at tailored our coaching to suit our needs. He made us feel like pros even though we are just weekend hackers. This was a pretty inspiring experience for me. I hope to come back one day.

    I have never seen my son Jacob as happy as when he got in the car last night after the two hours – “Dad that was the best birthday party “EVER” all my friends said so too!”, did you see me do this, did you see how high the drop in was – frothing doesn’t quite capture his excitement. They all had a great time and Crispy was awesome it’s something they will remember for ever.
