Surfers who have been part of SVPD include Nikki van Dijk, India Robinson, Xavier Huxtable, Joe Van Dijk, Codie Jeffery, Willis Droomer, Kobie Enright, Isabella Nichols and more.


I first worked with the SVPD a few months before, then in the direct lead up to the 2016 WSL World Junior Titles at Ericera in Portugal. Our training was specific to the event conditions, we were able to make major adjustments and improvements in my approach to the wave in a short period of time.

I have absolutely no doubt that this training largely contributed to my World Junior Title win.
