Moving Forward: The Pancho Sullivan & Myles Padaca Experience

For a professional surfer, life after the limelight can be a tricky thing. Far too often we see guys who have worked their whole lives to rise to the top get lost in the mix as they move from their 30’s to their 40’s. All the attention that was once focused on them has moved on to the ‘next big thing’, and many times the sponsors who were coddling them and letting them know how great they were for all of those years end up chewing them up and spitting them out as soon as they’ve gotten all they can out of the rider.

This is why I really dug seeing the news of the endeavor taken up by two of the finest surfers to ever come out of Hawaii. Pancho Sullivan and Myles Padaca just launched Progressive Surfing, a new company dedicated to training up-and-coming surfers and helping them make it on the North Shore. It’s widely known in surfing that Hawai’i is the ultimate proving ground. Now surfers trying to break through to the next level can soak up the wealth of “Seven-Mile Miracle” knowledge held by the two legends. “The knowledge we’ve gained in managing our own competitive journey has given us unsurpassed insight into performing at the international level,” says Sullivan.”Over the years, we have worked with many coaches and physical trainers and we want to pass on this vital information to future generations of aspiring surfers.

Clincis for 2009 are already being offered and run February through April, September, October, and December. More than anything though, this is just a killer example of surfers learning how to take the next step in their career. There is almost as much to learn from Myles and Pancho on the business side of things as there is at Sunset Beach.
