This is one of the most common questions ladies ask themselves before even coming along and having a session:

“Is it something that I can actually do and if I can what type of surfer am I aiming to be because for sure I’m not going to be a pro surfer so does that mean I can be a surfer at all?”

One of the most magical things about this sport is that it really is for any person at any age. If you are willing to explore the stages of surfing and learn to understand all the different types of surfers there are then you will be able to find a style of surfing that complements who you are as a person.

People surf for many different reasons and not reason is right or wrong. Some examples are Fitness, emotional (stress relief), environmental (connecting with nature), mental (challenging themselves), social and many more. The ocean is a forever changing environment which means there are surf conditions and surfboards for all sorts of surfers and it is our job as your coach to help you find your rhythm out in the ocean and understand the style of board you have chosen to master.

It is not about being a pro out there but about becoming a competent and confident surfer no matter what type of surfer you are.

Hi, my name is Gee Cormack founder/ owner & head coach here at Chix Surf School. I have been surfing since I can remember, since I was a little kid getting in the water before and after school with my big brother. I was also a nippers kid so learning about everything the ocean had to offer was what we loved to do most.
