Surfbook


Created in Mai 2012 by Paul Catalano and Joseph Delaval from Surf Univers,
Our « SURFBOOK » is an excellent tool to optimize surfer’s learning process.
At the end of the 5-day traineeship, each pupil receive his surfbook fill up by his instructors.
Together, they do a concrete check on the goals and abilities completed or not.
If the surfer got enough capacities depending of the sea conditions and reach the main goal, his instructor will attribute him the next surf level.
