Dave Winchester: hear what the coach has to tell you

Dave Winchester is the new bodyboarding coaching director of Surfing New South Wales.

The professional bodyboarder born in Paddington, New South Wales, will be sharing his coaching tips and development clinics with the wave riding community.

"David is a class act and a great role model for all people who participate in the bodyboarding discipline," says Mark Windon, CEO at Surfing NSW.

"For several years now he's been regarded as one of the world's best and most credible bodyboarders and it's a massive feather in our cap for Surfing NSW to have him on board."

Surfing NSW has also announced that there will be two rounds of the NSW Bodyboard State Titles in 2014. Total points from both rounds will be tallied and used to select the team to represent the state at the 2014 national titles.

The first NSW Bodyboard State Title events will take place, at Kiama, between 2nd-4th May.

"I hope I can help improve the growth of grassroots bodyboarding in the near future. I appreciate all the luxuries bodyboarding has afforded me and I'm excited if I can help any other aspiring bodyboarders to help chase their dreams as well," added Dave Winchester.
