Who is a Professional surfer?

Kelly Slater - the most famous professional surfer of all time - unisurfity.jpg

Professional. Ok, so there's not many who are truly professional surfers, so this level can be a little misleading. This is basically anyone who is advanced and is looking to compete, or they're one step above their local surfing community. Whether your looking at featuring in magazines, social media, or you aim to represent your country or yourself in competition. In a nutshell: this is advanced but with an emphasis towards making yourself into a brand or to win heats consistently.

What to expect

Very similar to advanced however, as stated above, the coaching on the trips will also give you advice on more specific goals. Differences will be heat drills, manoeuvre drills, tips on working with photographers both in water and from the land. Tips on getting a portfolio, and how to present yourself to sponsors or fulfil sponsors requests and needs.
