Past Retreats & Clinics
Longboard and Mid-Length Clinic | April 22nd – 30th, 2017

WaveCaddy Surf, in collaboration with Olo Alaia Surf & Brew, hosted a specialist longboard and mid-length coaching clinic in Playa Guiones Nosara.

Intermediate and advanced surfers learned mid-length specific techniques that provided surfers with the knowledge and guidance they needed to create confidence in their surfing. This 8-night retreat was hosted at Casa Hermandad and included surf lessons, video coaching and theory, SUP lessons, a private chef and quality accommodations.

Our Coach

Owen of WaveCaddy Surf is one my favorite characters to find in the line-up. He lives for surfing. He’s one of the few who’ve contemplated surfing on a larger, historical scale and has an innate appreciation for all styles and forms of wave riding. He surfs a wide range of sizes and styles of surfboards with expertise, and somehow is able to switch back and forth eloquently. He is a top-notch surfing teacher and coach and is very serious and focused on each individual lesson as if it has deep meaning and importance – which we all knows it does when we are in the student’s position.

He’s a smart dude who’s degree in Environmental Resource Management and HND in Surf Science & Technology compliment his vocational ISA Level 2 Surf Instructor & RLSS Beach Lifeguard qualifications. Owen has spent in excess of 20 years hopping the globe, riding the seasons, and logging countless hours of water time. His invaluable knowledge he is only too happy to share with his clients to help accelerate their learning experience.

“To me surfing is about tapping the energy from the source (the wave) and flowing with it. It shouldn’t be forced. I try to install this approach with my students. I want them to tune into the elements, be like water!… understand their environment. I especially like coaching intermediate and advanced students with the emphasis being to create a sense of ease, connection and understanding in their surfing”
