Surf Coaching

Matt Griggs Pro Surf Coaching

Matt’s coaching experience and interest is at elite level – and anyone that wants to be there. Initially grounded with professional surfers, having worked with former ASP World surfing Champions Mick Fanning and Stephanie Gilmore – and many other contenders, Matt has an understanding of what it takes to live at that level and how to train it.

The Academy 

Matt is an elite coach only, coaching kids at, or looking to reach the elite level. To achieve this, Matt has in place a program that offers guidance and support in all areas of their technical, physical, tactical and psychological development. In this way, the program is holistic in nature and at its heart is a clear message that personal development precedes professional. Since Matt left the WSL World Tour, his high performance academy has grown to 50 plus members. Within the current group, there are competition winners at both state, national and international level. Everyone that joins gets a t-shirt, stickers + a high performance journal to document their learning’s as well as weekly program, including physical exercise/nutrition, meditation, technique, etc.


Physical (Movement and exercise / Nutrition / breathing / hydration)

Technical (Skill Acquisition)

Tactical (Goal-setting / programming / Contest preparation & strategies, building a support network & Resources)

Psychological (The Mind and Performance, Kelee Meditation)

What level do I need to be at to join? 

This is not a surf school this is a High Performance Academy. You need to be in a board-riders club and already competing at regional level, with goals of elite performance. You don’t have to be amazing right now, Matt is more interested in people that want to be – and are willing to put in the work. This is not a surf school. Matt, Shane or Rach will be on the beach videoing; so all surfers need to be able to handle themselves in the water to a certain degree.
