The Surf Institute’s mission is to illuminate others of all things surf. For the last 20 years, Carla Zamora, TSI’s founder, has been doing just that! From private & small group lessons to workshops to online long distance coaching, Carla has been passionate about sharing her knowledge with those equally passionate to learn.

A jill-of-many-trades, Carla has created a few instructional videos for her in-person workshops, and while adequate, she wants to make more detailed videos that are more precise and of higher quality. Once created, they can be distributed to eager surfers like YOU!

The TSI Video Library will consist of multiple episodes covering a variety of topics.*

Once enough funds are collected to secure a production team, we will begin the creation process. Video production and editing is being sourced from the Philippines and, ideally, will be filmed on location in San Juan, La Union, Carla’s second home where a number of skilled longboarders will be included in the filming process.
