The local Surf School, with its professional instructors, has over a decade of specialist experience in the Santa Cruz area, so has the expertise in constantly monitoring the tides, sea conditions and the changing positions of the sand bars. Each day the Surf School chooses the safest and best places – and the best times – for our surfers to learn and improve in optimum conditions. Although the timing of instruction is flexible, lessons will average about 3 hours each day from Monday to Friday.
The beaches that the surfing instructors regularly use are usually about a 15-minute drive away. In the 20 kilometres of coast around Santa Cruz there are 20 different beaches with the closest and our main base, the Blue Star rated Praia de Santa Cruz a mere 15 minute walk for our accommodation. All campers, whilst surfing, will be provided with specialist, quality equipment including a surf board, rash guard and wet suit.
It is interesting that it was at Nazare, about an hour away from our surf beaches, that the world record biggest wave was surfed during the winter months. We will surf in the month of July when the superb beaches at Santa Cruz promise perfect conditions for beginners right through the intermediate range to the most advanced surfers. Safety is our main concern with fun and excitement ranked closely behind.
