"So I bought the OMBE program after chewing up all their free videos, and I procrastinated because it was a chunk of change (2/3 of a new board!!). Anyway , best money I’ve spent on my surfing ever. It fixed my stance, improved my popup and takeoff, got me on rail more and smoothed out my surfing. The main thing is I’m doing sooo much land based drills to ing..." Read more

"The breakdown of the lessons is great as I can work on one aspect at a time. Having a gameplan on what I am trying to do while surfing instead of lets just see how it goes today makes surfing more fun."

I was actively looking for a local surf coach to help me but wasn't feeling that confident in the people I met. Then I found OMBE on youtube. I watched a number of videos and they were really helpful. I t..." Read more

"The best surf training program ever. Clayton's knowledge and wisdom is off the charts. I've been surfing wrong for 20 years. At least now I can correct the next 20. I've had so many lightbulb moments. Surfing is starting to become easier, I'm taking off deeper and having a ton of fun. Deirdre"

"The best surf coaching ever! Breaks the technique down into simple terms and gives drills that you can do at home. Most importantly it tackles how you can overcome any fear or anxiety that might be holding you back. I can’t speak highly enough of this product!"

"I started to follow the program and my live in the water has changed completely. I'm quite a beginner and I was struggling to catch and pop up consistently. After following the online basics program I managed to go from a 20% success rate to catch almost everything on small surfs in barely a week. I started having so much fun. I was focusing on the wrong th..." Read more

"Loving the revelations from this training, all of it is clear and makes perfect sense. Particularly like that it integrates some psychology into both the learning method and the mindset needed for surfing. Wish I had done it years ago! Thanks to the OMBE team for putting it all together."

"I've been a surfer for 20+ years and the OMBE method is teaching me so many things I never figured out through my own trial and error. It's an amazing program to learn how to surf very well or to fix bad habits. As for me, I'm in the process of both learning new things and undoing bad habits! Absolutely loving the process!!"
