“The best part of my trip with Barefoot was how much I improved my surfing. I’d done a bunch of single surf lessons before & this was the first time I actually felt like the surf guides were instructing, critiquing & pushing me to get better at surfing.”

"Although I’ve been surfing since 1968 I still can learn from watching these videos. We didn’t have any surfing schools back then. Everything I learned was from trial and error. Watching these videos show some of the mistakes I make even after 50 years of surfing!”

Is this for me?

Our surfing courses are specifically designed for the following levels of surfers:


Beginner Foundations

You never surfed before or tried only a few times


Beginner Progression

You are starting to catch & surf unbroken waves by yourself


Intermediate Foundations

You can consistently angle your take off & ride the shoulder 


Intermediate Progression

You are working on manoeuvres like cutbacks, floaters, snaps, etc.


You can access our content on your phone, tablet and laptop, as the platform is fully responsive.

You can watch your tutorials on nearly any device:

  • Desktop, laptop, tablet or phone

Additionally, you can watch your content on your TV by:

  • Linking your iPhone phone or Mac computer using Airplay with Apple TV
  • Using an HDMI cord to connect a computer or laptop to your TV

Over the years, we have gained significant knowledge on how surfers progress, what are the key techniques they need to learn, what are the most common mistakes, how to fix them, etc.

Originally, we had designed our tutorials to help the hundreds of beginner & intermediate surfers that join our coaching retreats. They are specifically designed for the types of surfers that join our retreats, which are:

  • Surfers that never surfed before or tried only a few times
  • Surfers that are starting to catch & surf unbroken waves by themselves
  • Surfers that can consistently angle their take off & ride the shoulder 
  • Surfers that are working on manoeuvres like cutbacks, floaters, snaps, etc. 
  • You cannot be “too much of a beginner” to benefit from our tutorials. They are built specifically for beginner and intermediate surfers (including ones that have never tried surfing before).
  • You can be too advanced for our tutorials. At the moment we do not have advanced tutorials, for example, how to get barrelled, how to do airs, etc.

If you’re a beginner or an intermediate surfer, we have the package that fits your skills and goals.

We accept payments by Credit Card or PayPal.
