ABOUT THE SURF CAMP



Champcaracter and operator

EasyDrop started off as a one-man company in 1997, with a couple of surfboards on the beach, and a simple website. Till today, thousands of students from all over the world and every age have gone through the EasyDrop program. The one-man company has grown to many employees, including a multi-language office team (english, spanish, german, portuguese), besides our genius instructors. Everyone at EasyDrop eats and breathes surfing, while focusing on providing our clients with maximum success in little time, in a friendly and warm Brazilian way.

ACCOMMODATION AND CATERING



Accommodation
To make your stay in Itacaré as comfortable as possible, we chose Pousada Girassol as our standard EasyDrop lodging option to accompany all of our surf packages. Pousada Girassol is located on Praia da Concha, one of the most posh neighborhoods in Itacaré and an excellent place for relaxing and swimming. You'll find numerous beach huts here selling cold beer and fresh seafood. The pousasda is beautifully located just steps from the beach with views of Boca da Barra swells. In addition, a short 5-minute walk will bring you to the heart of town and the EasyDrop headquarters where we depart daily to our surf destination.

Pousada Girassol is a friendly, family-run business and EasyDrop has been partnering with them to house our students for the last several years. The proprietors, friendly folks from the central Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, are flower enthusiasts and you’ll often find rare species scattered around the walled garden. All 12 rooms in Pousada Girassol are spacious, extremely clean and individually decorated and include a private bathroom. For your convenience, each room comes with air conditioning, small refrigerator, TV, and a veranda with hammock. Each day they serve up a rich, tropical breakfast in an airy outdoor patio and include homemade specialties from Minas Gerais.



Catering
Restaurants and Supermarkets are only 5 minutes walking distance away. You will find a variety of good restaurans serving food from all over the world for each taste.

SURF COURSE AND ACTIVITIES



Surf course details
Our surf lessons take 4 hours net (not including transfer to beach and preparation) and consist of groups of up to 12 students, with EasyDrop providing at least one instructor for every five students. Students are then grouped together based on similar skill levels. The entire group will benefit from universal lesson topics such as assessing surf conditions and proper stretching. In addition, EasyDrop’s trademark video review and theoretical analysis are done together daily so that the entire group can be exposed to a wide variety of skill & performance. This also provides a fun & unique experience for students to get to know one another. With this setup, we can meet the needs of all different levels, from beginner to advanced surfers.
Theoretical surf classes are held from Monday through Friday at the EasyDrop headquarters located in the historical center of Itacaré. These sessions run on a weekly cycle, are accompanied by an EasyDrop surf manual, and last approximately one and a half hours. Being able to watch yourself surf is a fundamental way to translate our instructor’s suggestions. In each session, instructors will also help you set new goals for the following day.Classes are held in English and Portuguese. It is possible to book surf classes only without accommodation.



Surf materials
High equipment standards and cutting edge technology have had a place at EasyDrop since we opened in 1998. Our experience with the intelligent use of technology has proved that it tremendously enhances learning and performance. It is our belief that a good surf school should provide a wide variety of surf equipment, learning conditions, well-prepared instructors and excellent technological tools to help support their students. Our comprehensive stock of surfboards includes all shapes and lengths made from both polyester and eps. However, the majority are traditional polyester longboards. In order to protect you from the scorching Bahian sun, we offer a full range of short & long sleeve rash guards as well as waterproof surfing hats. For periods when the water is cooler (especially from June to August), we provide all sizes of spring wetsuits and neoprene vests & shorts (our stock includes women-specific cuts).



Other activties

Massage
Therapeutic massages available at the EasyDrop’s Revitalize Spa will help you to actively rejuvenate your tense surfing muscles. Besides the relaxing effect, massage increases your muscle power, mobility, and endurance and is therefore bound to increase your surfing success!

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


Surfconditions
The coastline of Itacaré ranges from flat beaches that extend for miles and miles, to small sheltered beaches surrounded by hills and rainforest. As a result, the region is host to a wide variety of surf spots with different face directions, extensions, and bottom shapes. Many of these spots remain uncrowded most of the time due to their remote location and limited access.

Pontal - Pure Power
During Brazilian winter (May to September) when swells and winds turn south, Pontal offers excellent surf conditions for both intermediate and advanced surfers.
The only inhabitants of Pontal are the many rare animals and thousands of coconut palms. The waves on the outer sandbars are large with a slow break, but become fast and hollow on the inside peaks. Pontal is not well suited for beginners for the following reasons. Channels to the outside are not easily accessible and are difficult to navigate. Forceful cross currents are almost always present and at times severe & dangerous rip currents exist. Getting in and out can be tricky as well as unsafe due to heavy shore breaks.

Boca da Barra - Endless Rights
On big winter days, Boca da Barra provides one of the longest rideable waves in Brazil. An awesome right-hander, it peels down from the open sea for 1,000-2,000 meters, into the middle of Pontal beach. Just south of Pontal beach is the river mouth break called Boca da Barra. It can be seen from the center of town and accessed with a short 5-10 minute paddle from our lodging. Waves above nine feet are rare in Itacaré, but we have surfed Boca da Barra when swells were at 12 feet and have seen it produce even larger breaks. But, beware! In order to ride Boca da Barra, you will find yourself far out in the ocean where orientation is difficult and cross currents pull you away from the peak. Violent rip currents can make it a nightmare to get back in. Always check your equipment before you go since losing your board could be a fatal mistake and NEVER GO ALONE!

Prainha 
Stunning Beauty & Powerful Surf

Prainha’s right-hander is one of the most spectacular waves in the region. However, the more consistent left side can often provide perfect tubes. Prainha was rated one of the top ten beaches in Brazil due to its natural beauty. The beach is located within a 45-minute walk of town and during the Brazilian summer months (December to February), solid northeastern swells produce perfect tubular left point breaks in the left-hand corner. In the deep winter months, huge south swells and pure southern winds produce a gnarly but awesome right-hander that goes off in the right corner with an easy take off frame and peeling into a heavy shallow tube. When this break is on, you are sure to see some of the most spectacular waves in the region!

Jeribucaçu -
An Empty Line Up

The next surfing beach after Prainha is Jeribucaçu. Since this beach is not within walking distance of town, you will need to travel by car and once you reach the access points, there is an additional 20-30 minute hike in to the beach. Keep in mind that Jeribucaçu has several access points that are quite hidden, so plan to get a guide or go with EasyDrop!

Engenhoca
Longboarders & Kooks

Just south of Jeribucaçu is Engenhoca, another beach with limited access. You will need to drive further on the road toward Ilheus and hike in from the access point for a bout 20 minutes through the rainforest. Again, we highly recommend you use a guide or our experienced EasyDrop staff to reach this spot. Engenhoca is EasyDrop’s main teaching beach due to the consistent surf and mellow currents, which makes it easy to paddle in and out. The beach is a half enclosed bay and is nicely protected from the northeast wind that is characteristic of our summer months. However, if the swell turns east or southeast the break can become choppy. You’ll find a nice channel on the left side that works perfectly up to double overhead surf!

Itacarezinho
Endless Beach Breaks

The last beach in our region is Itacarezinho, just south of Engenhoca. A hefty entrance fee will grant you drive-up access to the restaurant on the north end of the beach. Or you can access it via a 15-minute walk down a steep road. The best breaks are found south of the restaurant, and real estate development may limit the road access. If you walk along the beach you’ll eventually reach the legendary left-hand reef break called “Pedra Preta” that is near perfect in summer conditions. But on any day at Itacarezinho when the surf is up and the wind is down, you will find good surf all over!

I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am about my vacation/surf course with you.

Other (e.g. Surroundings, Nightlife, etc.):

Please send my heartfelt thanks to Thiago, Fred, Turipa and Rogerio/Gustavinho for their excellent teaching, and the lovely Sheena for wonderful filming and much needed encouragement (not to mention inspirational jiu jitsu)! Many thanks to all of you for each contributing your very own special energy, making the experience unforgettable!
