Our surf courses are basically devided into three categories. We teach all beginners, intermediates and advanced surfers. Requirements and descriptions of the courses and its content can be found below.
At this first stage as a beginner you will be introduced to the basic rules of surfing, how to transport the board out and in the water, the position to adopt on the board, how to paddle for a wave and how to stand on the board. This is the most important stage on learning to surf.
Another of the fundamental aspects of surf is knowing the sea, the currents, the types of waves and tides but also its dangers. It is also essential to become acquainted with the safety rules to avoid accidents. A good start is very important to your evolution. (*)
At this stage you must have some experience in the water. It is important to do a good take-off, know to paddle well to a wave and catch it easily.
At this level you will learn to drop waves on the green and learn the basic manoeuvre the bottom-turn. After this you will take on different manoeuvres like: the off-the-lip, cutback, floater, etc..
We will help you choose the appropriate board for this stage, your skills and stature. (*)
This stage is destinated to surfers that catch waves on the green, do a consistent drop, turn both left and right (front hand and back hand) and have control over the board and the wave.
Modern surfing is all about the ability of the surfer to generate speed. How to produce that speed and in what part of the wave you can generate it are aspects to focus on. We will teach you to adapt your surf to the characteristics of the wave, exploring all it’s possibilities no matter if it is a reef break, point break or beach break.
Manoeuvres like floaters, snap and cut-back will be better when generated with more velocity. At this stage we also introduce you to new manoeuvres like barrels and aerials.
Trying to take advantage of the pocket area (where the wave is stronger and creates more speed) is very important. The goals at this level require a lot of training so it is absolutely necessary to videotape the student in order to correct any mistakes that may occur. (*)
(*) It is from utmost importance and a requirement that all students are confident swimmers and are able to swim at least 200m in the sea.
