"Fantastic course. My surfing has improved quickly in a couple of months and that is without spending a focused period of time in the water! As a surfer living on the east coast of Scotland swells can be hit or miss with long periods of it being flat. The combination of water and land based drills means that you always having something to work on and develop..." Read more

"I'm in the UK and 2 hours away from the nearest surf. The 12 week course, especially the theory and land based drills are a stunning way to not only sustain, but improve my skills when I can't get to the surf. I am progressing well with only 1-2 sessions a month in the water. Can't recommend this course enough."

"As a 60+ year old trying to re-become a surfer, this training program has been fantastic! It has not only taught me about (finally) understanding the body positions that the world’s best surfers use, but its also about the various types of dry land training that I can now work on to get better when I’m not in the water. If you want to get better, and if you..." Read more

"I started surfing late in life (35) after finally moving to a coastal town a dream come true eventually. I got really involved in kitesurfing and SUP surfing but couldn't get surfing right, I mean how hard is it, you paddle in and pop up, my interest waned. Anyway 2 years ago I decided I'm only going to focus on surfing the route of all watersports, after ab..." Read more

"Great Course! I am 47 & only just started surfing. I have been land locked for about 95% of the time since I started my surfing journey but that hasn't been a problem as OMBE have plenty of practical training for you that doesn't require you to be at the beach, in fact the first time I attempted to surf I was up and riding & I'm 100% sure it's because of the..."

"Can’t believe how much my skills have progressed since I came across OMBE and enrolled in the 4 and then 12 week programs. Enjoying more stoke in and out of the water as my surfskate, wave selection, bodysurfing and posture improvements all add to a more enjoyable surfing experience."

"As a landlocked surfer, I have really felt the pain of a very slow progression in my surfing, and wanted to find a way to improve my technique while away from the water. Stumbled upon OMBE and enjoyed the 4-week free course so much that I decided to purchase the full 12-week program. I have learned a ton and now have dozens of land-based surf-specific trai..."

OMBE has taught me how to learn how to surf at home and now when I get in the water I just have fun and surf. For the price of a beginner board you can buy a bosu ball, a surfskate, grab a piece of c..." Read more
