5 Day Surf course

5 days is the ideal. It allows us over a 7 day period to make optimal use of any given conditions. More specifically it allows you to gain a huge amount of knowledge and skill that will set you in good steed for the rest of your surfing career.

The three levels:

Beginner: Surfing in the white water, turning left and right in the foam. Themes- Discovering and adapting to a new environment. Discovering ones own limits. Self confidence. Learning to listen to ones instincts and gain a certain level of skill in reading and understanding an important element in nature, which in this case, is water.

Intermediate: Out back, sitting on the board, starting to take small green (unbroken) waves, conditions permitting. Turning left and right on small unbroken waves. Themes- Discovering and adapting to a new environment, in this case we’ll be out back behind the breaking waves in the line-up. Discovering ones own limits. Self confidence. Learning to listen to ones instincts and increase your level of skill in reading and understanding an important element in nature, waves.

Advanced: Turning confidently both left and right on the open face of a wave, keeping in speed, front side and backside with the curl or pocket. Introduction to first manoeuvres, top turn, bottom turn, cut back, duck dive. Themes- Better reading of the wave and the way in which it is breaking. Correct anticipation of the breaking wave will allow you to position yourself better. Using the face of the wave to gather and maintain speed. Manoeuvre selection: the manoeuvre that is best suited to that type of wave or that specific part of the wave. In depth analysis of each manoeuvre, with it corresponding weight distribution and orientation of the head, shoulder and hips. Introduction to bio-mechanics in surfing.

Private Lessons and Surf Coaching

If you’re the short of person who likes taking short cuts then this is for you.

It’s hard enough learning (in surfing it’s more a case of discovering) the theory and then practicing it. Why not let us tell you the theory so that all you have to do now is practice. It’s so much quicker. Theory backed with explanations and demonstrations alows you to assimiliate the info every which way you need so that once nicely settled in your head all that you have to do now is programme your body to do it, beach practice helps at this point. Now into the waves and try it out on the water, remeber timing is the essence.

Choice of equipment

Having the right equipment is a big part of success. The surf board must be suited to your height and weight and to your ability. We provide wetsuits that are specifically suited for men, women and children, and that are adapted to the season. Spring suits (3/2), summer suits (2/2) and winter suits (4/3).
