We understand that tourists have different expectations, some want to have a moderate surf experience and some want to take it more seriously and be challenged to the limits, hence we prepare tailor made surf lessons and programs. We guide our students through the initiation and enhancement, following techniques and methods adapted pedagogical-didactic. In a later phase, the monitoring focuses on the more refined analysis on the issues of technical, tactical and physical preparation for competition, if that's your case.
For more advanced surfers we recommend the surfari packages where you'll be able to get to know other surf spots.
We provide wetsuits with different thicknesses depending on the season and the student’s needs, lycra t-shirts for differentiation of levels of students. In terms of surf boards we provide both: hardboards (resin and epoxy) and softboards (essential for a first contact in total security and control) of different sizes to monitor the progress of the student. We also provide video recording in the classroom and later theoretical analysis. Depending on the package we also provide breakfast, transfers, transportation to the beach etc.
Our certified instructors are specialized and trained in physical education, with extensive experience in surfing. The ratio teacher / student of 1:8 in practical classes allow us to focus in each student.
