We offer you the chance to spend a weekend away on the amazing south coast in a beautiful national park celebrating the magic of winter surfing with a bunch of likeminded women focusing on surf progression with no distractions.  This clinic is all about bringing it back to the basics with little cosy cabins surrounded by nature, epic surf right outside your door, good healthy food, chilled evenings around the fire pit with toasted marshmallows and great company.

During this Clinic we combine surf training, on land training  and video analysis to allow you to be more fluid, creative and controlled when riding waves.  Having an equal balance of surf education and ocean wellbeing we enable you to have a much better understanding of your surfing ability and how to find your rhythm in the water.

Gee Cormack

Owner/Founder - Chix Surf School

Hi, my name is Gee Cormack  founder/ owner & head coach here at Chix Surf School and can I just say a quick Thank You for checking out the site!

As we are a school that works very closely with our clients getting them to their dream surfing ability through teaching them to understand fear, breaking down technique and empowering through progression it is important to get to know our coaches and how we fell in love with surfing and helping other women surf.

Millie

Millie

Coach specialising in Beg / Int Surfing

Hi Everyone! My name is Millie and I am a Chix Surf School Coach specialising in Beginner/Intermediate surfing.
I started surfing when I was 13 years old (I am 28 now) in a little town in Argentina. One day my brothers started shaping surfboards and opened a surf school, where I began teaching. After coaching for a couple of years, I came to the realisation that I love to see people smiling, feeling challenged but having heaps of fun, connecting with nature and following the dream of riding eternal waves.

 

Erica

Erica

Beginner/Longboard Coach

Hello everyone! my name is Erica, I was born and raised in an Argentine coastal city called Miramar.

I love surfing and contact with the sea. It is the place where I spend most of my time and I would not change it for anything! It brings out the best in me, in the Ocean I am happy. Surfing my longboard is like dancing on the waves! I love working with a group of women, inspiring them to surf, breaking the fear and above all having fun. Creating a positive, warm and friendly environment: a very feminine unique characteristic.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have my own surfboard and wetsuit?

It is always good to bring your own equipment for the clinic so that we can help guide you on how to ride your board better but we are happy to provide you with one of our progression boards if you are looking at trying something new and we can provide a wetsuit if you don't have one. Just make sure you let us know before the event so we can provide it for you.

What if there are different levels of surfers at the clinic?

At our Winter Wonderland Clinics we provide multiple coaches to accommodate for all levels of surfing and depending on the surfing level will determine where each group surfs so no matter what level we will be able to provide a safe space to run classes.

Do I need to be able to ride a SmoothStar to come along to the clinic?

No you can be a beginner no worries at all but It is always good to have at least ridden a SmoothStar once or twice before to get the most out of this clinic as we will be working on technique correction, speed generating and wave simulation drills . You don't need to be amazing on a SmoothStar but it's always good to have been on one once or something similar at least a few times.

Do I need to have my own SmoothStar or can I ride a different board?

No we are not able to allow other types of surf trainers into this clinic as the drills and training is designed around simulating surfing and the SmoothStar boards are the closest feel to surfing so we work specifically with these boards to get the best results. We are totally more than happy for you to bring your other board and after the training you can try the drills with your normal boards no problems at all. We will provide SmoothStar boards for anyone that doesn't have one.

What protection do you provide for the On Land SmoothStar training?

We provide a helmet for anyone that doesn't have one as it is a requirement to have one on during any on land SmoothStar training. If you would like more protection during the training we are more than happy for you to bring your own padding as some feel they feel safer with it on.

Do I need to bring my own bedding and cutlery for the clinic?

As the style of this clinic is "coming back to basics and connecting with nature" we are staying in the magical national park accommodation so we can really spend time in nature so the accommodation is fun cabin styles. You will need to bring your own bedding, pillow and cutlery, bowls, cup for the weekend again.

What kind of food will be provided?

We have an amazing chef for the clinic that provides beautiful healthy warm foods for everyone for Saturday and Sunday. We will have a wide range of foods to accommodate for everyone and we also have a coffee sponsor that will be providing us with amazingly tasty coffees, teas, and hot chocolates.

What if I have dietary needs?

No matter what you eat we will make sure your tummies are full of amazing food. We will send out a form for everyone to fill out in regards to their personal needs but you are also more than welcome to bring along any snacks and special foods that will make sure you smile all weekend. Just let us know what you're bringing or what you need.

Do I have to participate in all the activities?

No you surely do not. We put a range of activities on but you can take it at your own pace and rest or relax whenever you like. It's a weekend for learning, growing and bonding and that can happen in your own way at your own pace.

What if I don't have a car?

It's no problem at all if you don't have transport to the location we are sure you will be able to carpool with someone else that is coming along so just make sure you let us know well in advance and we can partner you up with one of the other ladies coming along for the weekend.

Do we get to keep the footage from the video analysis session?

Yes you sure do. All the footage that is taken from the surf session is sent to you via a link so you are able to watch over it all over and over again to remind you of what things you need to work on. It is just the raw footage and will be sent to you after the clinic is finished.
