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!
