John Florence, Kelly Slater and more talk Coaches
Coaching. It may just be the most polarising subject of professional surfing. John Florence was the last bastion of the surfing is the best surf prep ideology but along with gym time, he too now flies under the guidance of a more experienced heat strategist (Bede Durbidge, during the Quiksilver Pro). The only anomaly now, as ever, is Kelly Slater. "I always felt that I could learn the best myself from my mistakes," says the 11-time world champ. In the latest edition of #TOURNOTES, we hear opinion on professional surf coaching from John, Bede, Julian Wilson, Snake, Occy, Bugs, Ross Williams, Carissa Moore, Filipe Toledo and more.
This is great fucking viewing.
