To kick things off, we rented an absolute mansion on the hill at Whale Beach... The first day was jam packed with training, we got up early and went and visited the Narrabeen Sports Academy so the boys could get evaluated. Cooper was a local at the training facility so he felt comfortable but that didn't mean he would stand out the most, with Dom's big wave fitness he was at the elite level showing the grommets how it's done.
Straight from there it was off to the beach for a whole lot of heat drills... Obviously this is where Barton Lynch really comes in to play, this guy is awesome, to have a former world champ on the beach is so beneficial for the guys. Excluding Dom all these guys want to be competitive surfers and Barton is there for them in any way at all. After our surf session we would always go back to the house and the boys we pick Barton's competitive mind whilst watching the days footage.
Over the next few days we would tick all the boxes, video analysis, media training, swimming session, we even brought in one of the best surfboard shapers going around, Lee Stacey to chat about boards, the importance of having the correct equipment for you. Lee was great and answered all of the boys questions...
Over the 4 days we had a filmer capturing all of the action and soon as we have got a clip together i will get it up on the site!
