ProSurf Coaches was founded in 1999 to provide performance coaching and fast track instruction for recreational surfers. Each coaching program is custom designed for the individual to help them set and achieve goals for their surfing quickly and safely and all or our programs are effective and affordable. ProSurf Coaches is also the only year round surf coaching program serving surfers in both NJ and NY.


Lead Coach Robbie Nelson discovered surfing as an 8 year kid and got immediately hooked. He spent his formative years competing and searching for perfect surf around the planet. Robbie got his first job as a surf instructor in 1990 then became one of the few American graduates of the elite Surfing Australia Level 2 Coaching Coaching Course in 1995. He recently completed the M.A.P. Coaching Clinic with elite surf coach and World Tour veteran, Jay "Bottle" Thompson. 

Coach Nelson is 100% committed to the success of his athletes and has spent the last several years dedicated to developing new and exciting methods to help each athlete reach their goals and potential.
