Wow!!!! CRITTA 🤙🏼 what an amazing time, after getting stuck with my progression with surfing I messaged Chris. Straight away in the first day of our sessions I was already fixing all the little mistakes that only a professional coach would pick up on. After a week with Chris my love of surfing really increased, getting much bigger waves, carving, turning, having the time of my life!! I would seriously recommend Chris, an amazing guy and a super sick coach!!!!Cheers critta 💥

As a surfer, I've been fortunate enough to catch some waves at various spots around the world. However, I've always struggled with my backhand. I could never seem to generate enough speed or power, and my turns were often sloppy. It was frustrating, and I knew I needed help.That's where Chris came in. I had heard good things about his surf school in Bali, so I decided to book a few sessions with him to work on my backhand. From the very first lesson, I knew I had made the right choice.Chris has a wealth of experience as both a surfer and a coach, and it shows. He was able to quickly diagnose the issues with my backhand and provide clear, actionable feedback on how to improve. He took the time to explain the mechanics of a good backhand turn, breaking it down step by step so I could understand it better. He also emphasized the importance of body positioning, weight distribution, and timing, all of which were crucial to executing a proper turn.What I appreciated most about Chris, however, was his patience and encouragement. He didn't get frustrated when I struggled to put his advice into practice, nor did he ever make me feel like I wasn't making progress. Instead, he continued to offer guidance and support, providing tips and tricks to help me improve. And when I finally nailed my first proper backhand turn, he was just as excited as I was!Overall, I can't recommend Chris Byrne and his surf school in Bali enough. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced surfer looking to fine-tune your skills, Chris has the expertise, experience, and enthusiasm to help you achieve your goals. I know I'll be returning to his school the next time I'm in Bali.

Chris took my Wife and I to G-Land to improve our surfing for a week. He made us feel totally comfortable in the water and I really appreciated how much he cared about our surfing and he fixed a crucial area that was holding me back. He genuinely wants you to get better and is a wealth of knowledge. Highly recommend Chris.

WE FILM YOU - AND provide FEEDBACK WITH Surfing Video Analysis

video analysis For hardcore intermediate surfers

In my coaching programs, I utilize video analysis as the core training tool to help surfers visualize and understand how to improve their skills. With this technology, I can analyze footage of the surfer in action, providing valuable feedback and insights into their technique and form. Through video analysis, we can identify areas that need improvement and develop personalized coaching plans to help the surfer progress. My aim is to help every surfer reach their full potential, and video analysis is an essential tool to achieve this goal. I also work with Bali Drone Pro, Surf Eye Drones to capture your surfing from above. “Chris Byrne”

Video Analysis for Beginners progression

Video analysis is a powerful tool for beginner surfers. It provides a visual perspective that helps surfers observe and improve their stance, balance, and technique fast tracking so you will be up in riding waves to the beach in no time.. Instructors/coaches can offer precise feedback by breaking down a surfer’s movements frame by frame. This tool enhances understanding of wave dynamics, improving wave selection and timing. Video analysis also motivates surfers by showcasing their progress and inspiring dedication. In essence, it accelerates skill development, making the surfing experience more rewarding for beginners.
