Hey guys !
We are Andrew and Eleonora.
Welcome to Andrew Goodman Surf Coaching.
After coaching for over 13 years, Andrew realised that every student he taught needed a slightly different approach to getting up and riding a wave, and this is what brought him to the way he teaches people to learn how to surf today. His unique Open Minded Surf Coaching approach caters to each person as an individual and the coaching you get with Andrew is totally designed specifically for you and your physical needs.
Joining up with Eleonora, who has a vast amount of experience in the photography, communication and digital industry, meant that it was time to bring Andrew Goodman Surf Coaching to the world.
Together we are creating a movement to break down the stereotypes around surfing. No longer do you need to be the fittest person in the world to learn how to surf, nor do you need to be a certain age.
What you need in order to learn how to surf is a positive attitude and a great surf coach, someone who cares about helping you reach your goals and who offers alternatives to the conventional, one-size-fits-all approach.
When I first met Jessie, she had never surfed before and she was coming in with a lot of fear and hesitance, as she wasn't sure she was able to go through with it.
So it wasn't just a physical challenge I was going to help her with, I also had to break down some mental blocks that were standing in her way.
We worked together for just under a week and I literally watched her surfing skills get better day after day.
Surfing is as much mental as it is physical, and mental blocks need to be worked on strategically, that's why I always include mindset sessions in my lessons and Retreats.
UNPARALLELED EXPERIENCE IN SURFING AND SURF COACHING
38 years of experience as a surfer and 13 years as a surf coach. Andrew is one of the most experienced coaches you can find. He has developed skills that allow him to read a surf break to pin-point accuracy, within just a few moments.
This allows him to put you on the most appropriate waves for your level, keeping you safe and excited at the same time.
8000 STUDENTS AND A COACHING SUCCESS RATE OF 100%
Andrew has coached 8000 people in his surfing career, including a South African Surf Champion. His success rate is 100% and his oldest student is an 86 year old woman who learned to surf with Andrew on a beach in Santa Monica !
We both strongly believe anyone can surf, no matter their age or fitness level.
WE DO THINGS PERSONALLY
This is probably one of the biggest things that separates us from other businesses: From the very first contact you have with us via email, to the person greeting you on the jetty at the resort, you are only dealing with 2 people: Andrew and Eleonora.
We love attention to detail and we personalise everything, from sending you a signed copy of Andrew's book in the mail prior to our surf trip, to setting up a coaching call to set your surfing goals.
WE KNOW The Maldives LIKE NO OTHER
Andrew has lived in The Maldives and knows all the surf spots, including some secret gems.
Eleonora is a regular author for the Trans Maldivian Airways inflight magazine, since 2015. You can read Eleonora's article on Surfing In The Maldives by clicking the button below.
Andrew taught me how to control my board and myself in the water. With that knowledge I got to the point where I am not afraid anymore of a rough impact zone. I am so happy I can finally make it to the
line up with all the other surfers.
I've never had anyone explain the "character" of a wave so lively and understandable like Andrew. From that time on I was able to read the waves and finally know which ones to take.
I highly recommend him to anyone at any surf level.
Andrew has such a wealth of knowledge, both practical and theoretical,that i felt completely comfortable in the water and I was able to stand up on my board after a couple of hours of being in the water with him. Thanks to him, I was able to tick off a bucket list item !
