Secrets to Progressive Surfing


Far beyond a simple sporting act, surfing is a fascinating lifestyle choice, involving a broad spectrum of techniques and skills, athleticism, wave knowledge and above all, fun. While more and more people get hooked on surfing every day, there are relatively few books or references available for improving knowledge and performance.

Didier Piter, four-time European champion and acknowledged surf coach, and world-renowned photographer Bernard Testemale present a unique work covering all useful fundamentals for becoming a complete surfer.
From understanding ocean phenomena to technical breakdowns for all surfing manoeuvres, you are invited to share the authors' passion and experience.

Secrets Of Progressive Surfing is not your average learn-to-surf book aimed at getting beginners up and riding. This is a detailed analysis of what it takes to master just about every manoeuvre in the book, from the humble take-off to the modern aerial and everything in between. The text is clear and understandable, broken down into logical step by step progressions, shedding light on the techniques used by the pros. And what better pro to demonstrate the required skills in beautifully photographed sequences than Kelly Slater, 11 times World Champ, who plays a starring role in this incredible book that has something for every surfer on the planet.

162 pages of keys and secrets to the surfing world, prefaced by Kelly Slater, for surfers of all levels eager to further their understanding and appreciation of the sport of kings.

A leading European surfer through the 90's, Didier Piter naturally made the transition to coaching in 2001. Ever focused on the synergy between surfer and wave and technical aspects of high performance surfing, he has coached most of today's top European surfers. Still sharing his passion and experience with a leading surf team, he stands at the forefront of European surf coaching.

Having contributed for fifteen years to the finest surf publications in the world, Bernard Testemale has become a leading light in surfing photography. Renowned and respected among his peers, he has been part of numerous projects around the world's oceans in the quest for swells, locations and fine imagery, enthusiastically working with some of the very best surfers in the world.
