We’re really proud to announce that we have finished the latest version of the Surf Simply ‘Tree Of Knowledge’ poster. Not only is there now a 12 foot high version of it up on the wall in our video analysis room but it’s also available to buy, as a 23″ X 35″ poster, at our our online store.
“The tree of what?” We have made a visual flow chart of all the key surf skills from level 1 to 4. It allows beginners to clearly see a road map telling them which skills need to be mastered first, what they will lead on to and, most importantly, why. For more experienced surfers, the poster tells you what you should be aiming for next and what gaps in your knowledge might need to be revisited in order for you to progress. Experienced surfers tend to frequently have the same gaps in their skill set so the poster has been designed to emphasize what we have learned, are the most common errors.
As far as I know there is nothing like this available anywhere else and, knowing the work which has gone into it, I can see why. The graphic is the result of years of tweaking our methodology so that different skills are tackled in a different order with different motivations being emphasized to the students. The data gathered has lead to this latest version of the “Tree Of Knowlegde” poster which is all yours for the bargain price of 40 bucks.
