PROMOTION - SURF CAMP 4 DAYS
- 4 NIGHTS IN SURF HOSTEL (WITH BREAKFAST)
- 3 DAYS OF SURF LESSONS (ALL INCLUDED)
Every day we start with loading the necessary surf equipment on the Land Rover. Next we drive with our students to the spot of the day - the beach that is offering the best surfing conditions on a given day. This can vary because the waves depend on the swell direction, size, wind and many other factors and since here in Fuerteventura we have more than 20 different surfing beaches we can always take you to a perfect beginner/intermediate surf spot. And no worries - we also teach you how to choose the right spot for perfect session!
At the beach every surf lesson starts with a good surfer style warm up. This includes running, pushups, stretching, yoga and much more. Remember - good warm up means better performance during the surf session and less injuries!
Later on beginner surfers are introduced to the prone section of the lesson, where they will are instructed on how to enter the water safely, how to paddle to catch a wave and stand up on the board. Before going into the water all students are given the safety brief and made aware of the lesson plan, possible dangers and all the signals/commands used by the instructors.
All our surf lessons are given in small groups which allows our instructors to keep a close eye on their students, assist them with their instructions and guidance. At the beginning you will learn to ride waves from waist depth whilst lying down on the surfboard into the shore.
First days you will focus on watching so called "white waves" in waist deep water. This will spare you paddling through the breaking waves, which tends to be to hard at the beginning of your surf adventure. At this step you will need to master catching the small white water waves, standing up and balancing on the board.
At the later stage you will learn to paddle through the surf break, waiting for the waves, balancing on the board while laying and sitting on it, paddling for bigger "green waves" and going under the breaking waves (both turtle and duck dive technique). At this stage you will become and independent surfer that can practice independently and safely.
