ASP Surf Club is a collaborative platform for online surfers to meet the leading surf coaches and learn from their experiences. Whether just learning to surf or a seasoned veteran ASP Surf Club can help you get to the next level. Advanced surfing is primarily all about learning skilled movement patterns. These motor skills need to be fluent, coordinated and perfectly timed with the wave. They require constant repetition until they become encoded in the neuronal networks of the brain as learned automatic muscular-skeletal responses of a calmly-focused mind. Surfing, like any other sport, is as much a mind game as it is a physical skill. Combining the two – skilled physical movement patterns and a calm well-tuned mental approach – is the key to surfing success.
Flat footed, straight line surfing is a real thing in the intermediate surfing world with over 80% of surfers at any given beach falling victim to it. Being based on the Gold Coast, Australia the ASP Surf Club trains and collaborates with some of the best talents in the surfing world. As most of these high-level surf athletes and coaches can only work with a handful of individual surfers each year, this platform aims to expose the latest in surfing insights, training routines, tips, tricks, and hacks.
The ASP Surf programs aim to bridge this gap and help everyday surfers by sharing a deeper understanding of the most important aspects in surfing that can be improved with a little effort.
Clayton Nienaber has spent more than 30 years accumulating a wealth of surfing knowledge having been a WQS competitor, shaper and a high-performance surfing coach for over 15 years and has coached some of the best surfers in the world including Travis Logie, Ricky Basnett and Jordy Smith.
The advanced foundations and techniques programs are the product of all this experience and can give any surfer the tools to start training their mind and body to see massive improvements in the surf. The program modules cover the following:
- Your mental approach;

- How you move your body;
