What others say about
The surf companion
Surfers Companion is made with much love and affection by one of the most compassionate surf coaches I met in my life as a humble, but decent amateur surf maniac. The sketches are amazing, accurate and very helpful.
the book really covers anything you should know about surfing and the illustrations make it super quick and easy to understand and remember everything. it's an absolute must-have for any surfer and there doesn’t exist anything like it. best investment ever!
Surfcompanions helped me both with sharpening my basic technique and getting more into advanced maneuvers as bottom & top turns. I can really recommend it to any level of surfer!
