CONNER COFFIN (PRO SURFER)
I had the pleasure of working with Brad at varying levels for about five or six years. To this day, I have never met someone who has the understanding of the finite details of surfing movements that Brad has. His ability to dissect a manoeuvre and really break down the technicalities of it is amazing. When you reach a certain level in a craft it becomes harder to improve, but because Brad was so attune to detail I felt and continue to feel, really inspired to improve my surfing. Brad's passion for surfing and for coaching was also really inspiring to me at an important time in my career. Brad and I connected on the fact that surfing is an art form and expression on a wave creates your own personal style. I'm very grateful for the time and years that I had learning from Brad and I also love watching the younger kids that he is working with progress and develop as I did.
