Surf School

Surf classes for beginners

Our philosophy of surfing:
„Surfing is for us more than a temporary fashion. We neither like the stereotypes of surfing as a lifestyle, nor do we want to represent a surf sport, which is about wearing brand-name clothes, acting as cool as possible and being surrounded by some thong wearing chick standing at the beach. We consider surfing more as a possibility to be connected with the ocean and nature. It is a great way to do sport, discover new places, get to know more people and have a good time with each other. A possibility to express yourself and just be as you are.”

In just 5 days of surf lessons you will learn how to stand up on your board, slide through white water and so much more, like:

  • Warm-up exercise with special exercises of stretching for surfers
  • components of the surfboard
  • Positioning and the correct way of paddling on your surf board
  • How to stand up and get into the right position
  • Posture while surfing, posture of the head and the arms and legs
  • Timing on a wave: when and how you have to stand up
  • Knowledge about the current on the surf beach
  • Your own safety and the safety of other surfers

You can reach for your dream to know how to surf with us. Our experience confirms that most of the students learn how to stand up at their first or second surf lesson.
