Perfect(ing) Technique with Dune Kennings


Once a week I have a coaching session with Dune, Ella and Tane & McKensie Bowden. We run mock heats, talk technique and strategy. There’s a few press-ups dished out when they dont listen and obviously encourgement when they do listen or perform well. On Monday I took Dune and Mack down the coast to shoot some photos. A few of those shots are in the Queens Bday post yesterday. Below is a sequence of Dune with a near perfect backhand reo, dont forget he is only 14. The technique is well executed and as his coach I give it a B+. Once he starts consistently doing his squats and adding some strength to those legs he’ll be adding a big fan of spray and will be getting an A from me. There’s always room for improvement but as his coach I’m pretty chuffed where his surfing is heading (as well as the other three members of my D-Team).

Check the distant he's held his bottom turn...

Foot above the lip... and the money shot of the turn...

Check the slideshow below for the full sequence!
