“Surf to your best, Surf for Success”
The Miami High Surfing Excellence Program provides a holistic approach to the development of the professional surfer. The course is delivered by qualified and experienced coaches who work closely with specialised teachers and industry professionals to nurture and promote the development of young surfers.
Athletes will be provided with innovative opportunities and authentic learning experiences that aim to excite, engage and empower. The development of the surfer will stem from key learning areas surrounding the elements of surfing, oceanography and athlete development. Students will also be exposed to world class surfing sessions across the Gold Coast and Northern NSW.
