“We’ve had a run of small swell here (East end of Long Island, NY, USA) and I have started using your techniques. It’s only been a couple of sessions but I feel an improvement already.The body is not that quick to respond (I’m 55) but the mental strategies are helping (wave selection, successful finish etc). My biggest challenge is the bottom turn as the waves here for the most part are, excuse my expression, shit! Thanks for the help. I’m STOKED!”

“Martin Dunn is a highly skilled coach. His methods have produced National Champions from here in the South Island of NZ in both long board and short board disciplines. He can work at a number of levels from intermediate to elite with male and female athletes alike. He has an excellent manner, great communication skills, and a thorough technical understanding. I can recommend him from our experience of receiving both one on one and small group tuition. He is in my unreserved opinion one of the best coaches in the sport today.”

“The biggest contribution to the sucess of my kids surfing is due to the coaching of Martin Dunn. No other coach has the information on surfing technique that he has. He breaks down their turns the way other coaches do in golf, tennis, gymnastics, or diving movements. He spots and corrects small errors which lead to loss of speed or falls. If you want to surf at your maximum potiential you need have Martin Dunn on your team. He can help you whether you are a beginner or a top 44 professional surfer.”
Dr. John Jones
“Martin Dunn is calm, has a great energy, and is able to influence. He is adaptive to the surfer and their developmental stage and is able to translate a situation into words. He structures the coaching effectively so as to maximize the time of the lessons by filming, then getting out of water for coaching sessions and then getting right back in. He approaches coaching holistically and is able to relate not only to the surfer, but also to the parent. His experience is obvious in everything he does and it has been a privilege to have such an amazing mentor for my child.”

“There is a wealth of information on this site that comes from years of being at the leading edge of coaching in this sport. The continuous improvement to this information that comes with Martin’s full time involvement is unique and unmatched.
Anyone who wants to improve their surfing at any level, from free surfer to pro, will have to go a long way to match the information on this site.
Martin is one of those down to earth, highly experienced Aussies, whose no-nonsense approach is worth several times the money it costs and the benefit is a lifetime of improved surfing at any level.”

“We live in Tahiti where we enjoy beautiful waves and a great climate for surfing.
When my son was 12 and a very eager young surfer, I started looking for somebody who could help him improve his surfing technique and competitive skills since he loved competition and was starting to get good results at a local level. Australia seemed the best place for me to find the right person since the level of surfing there is outstanding. I found out about Martin through several parents of Australian surfers whom I trusted and I decided to take my son Enrique for the first of his several surfcamps at Old Bar. The experience was fantastic both at a training and technical level and at a human level. Enrique and other young Tahitian surfers have since enjoyed the great atmosphere and the training at Martin at Trish’s place and greatly improved their surfing.”

“When I started my role managing the Quiksilver team, I noticed one thing more than anything else. My surfers were very talented but were prone to simple errors, whether it be technical or competitive. I came to the conclusion surfers need coaching. So I sought out who I heard was the best in the business. Martin Dunn from Surf coach.com. Well now I know he does a great job and I have the results to prove it. Martin has delivered technical and tactical advice to my team that has seen them win many events. I highly recommend that you use martin if you are chasing the same results I was.”
“Martin’s training is great, he tells you just the right way to improve.”
“When you use Martin Dunn and the Surfcoach website for surf training – you are working with the best. His programs have vast experience and prior results that show that his programs work. All of his programs are easy to understand and surfers can apply the lessons at their own pace, in conditions that suit their ability”

“After our daughter attended Martin Dunn’s coaching camps we noticed an immediate improvement in her approach to her contest surfing. Martin’s techniques gave Sally a real focus for her preparation.
Sally eagerly attended the camps where open group discussions and review occurred at the end of sessions in a supportive environment. This improved her confidence to recognise issues in her surfing and look for ways to correct them.
The video analysis provided during and after the camp have been an invaluable reference for both Sally and me enabling healthy discussion of technical aspects that need improving and how to go about it. Split screen slow motion analysis against world class surfers really breaks the movements down in such a way that Sally has been able to visualize maneuvers and improve them.
I would thoroughly recommend Martin Dunn training camps and video training techniques to any parent wanting to help their son or daughter reach their surfing potential.”
Father of Sally Fitzgibbon – WCT ripper
“Martin has worked with each of my sons and every session they had with Martin has been valuable. Their surfing is still improving because of the lessons they learnt from Martin. If you are looking for a coach and want to improve you cannot do better than Martin.”
