Florian is a professional designer & illustrator and a passionate holiday surfer since 2013.

He knows all the struggles of learning surfers, as he is able to surf and get coaching only for a couple of weeks each year. This makes it a real challenge, to achieve a consistent learning curve.

To help solve that problem, over the years he has developed a visual format for illustrating surf tehniques, maneuvers and strategies. This has not only enabled him to document his progress and learnings, but also to analyze his sessions and figure out ways to improve.

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.
