WAVE PERCENTAGE %
To evaluate the percentage of good and bad waves caught by the surfer. To let the surfers have an understanding of their normal selection skills.
Ask the surfers to go for a light jog on the beach followed by stretching exercises.
NOTES TO THE COACH
The calculated percentages obtained are useful to the coach to get a picture of the wave selection skills of the surfers.
By not telling the surfers that you will be evaluating them, you will obtain a true reading of a surfer’s normal selection decisions.
Waves should not only be judged by what the surfer does on them, but also the potential that the wave offers to the surfer.
