With Beginners we start with Boardhandling (carrying the board, cross waves, turn around, lying on the board), the right position on the board, the paddling and gliding of a wave in the white-water. Afterwards we will start working on the Take-off, to get up on the board.

With advanced beginners with previous knowledge we check the take-off together and steady it through individual feedback, exercises and tips by our surf coaches. Step by step you will learn how to surf waves frontside and backside (do small turns with the surfboard), how to slow down and how to gain speed. We paddle into the line-up with you, explain the techniques to cross a wave, how to sit on the surfboard and how to turn it around.

Surf lesson at the reef

When you feel secure surfing on the beach we will take you to the reef. This surf spot is perfect for beginners to improve their techniques and knowledge. You will work on your paddle power and consolidate your take-off in green waves. Afterwards you start to learn how you gain speed and surf turns (bottom turn, cut back, top turn), etc.

4. Surf theory after the surf lesson in our surf school

When we are back in the surf school there will be another small theoretical part about different topics. For example board techniques, tides, wave development, currents, surf material, maneuvers, right of way, behavior in the water, etc. These topics are logically structured and you will receive the knowledge you need to go surfing on your own very soon.
