What you'll do
The idea is for you to experience a surfer's day! Our experience always happens in the early morning, we wake up with the birds, and we meet on the beach around 6am in the morning (believe me, here the sunrise is very early). In general, conditions for surfing are better in the morning. Depending on where you are staying, we can even give you a ride! The ride is also part of the "surfistic"experience, surfers loves to walk in small groups or in pairs. Of course, there are always the "lonely wolves" but me and my group love to surf together! In the sand we will stretch out and warm up, and then I will give you the basic information and we will do some simulations of movements that will help you when you are in the water. I'll be by your side in the water for about 30 to 40 minutes (depending on your fitness, this time may be different) to help you in that first contact. The remaining time is yours to practice your skills and have fun in the water. We'll try to capture in photos all your experience on land and sea, from beginning to end! The photos are included and are a partnership with Unknown Surfers.
So people, I started surfing in 1998, and I always surfed as a leisure activity. I always take my friends to start learning to surf, to help them in the first few tries, the first contact with the surfboard, you know?! It was by chance that I discovered the AirBnB Experience, and at the time I remembered my first experience in surfing (I tell this story further), also remembered all the experiences with friends that I have had the opportunity to help over the years. And so I thought: why not to share that feeling with more people, right?!

Where you'll be
The place that we are going to surf will vary according to the forecast of the waves for the day. In general, the best beaches in the city to learn to surf are Ponta Negra and Cotovelo. The beach of Ponta Negra is an urban beach that is located in the neighborhood of the same name and houses the main postcard of the city, a sand dune named "Morro do Careca". The Cotovelo's beach is located in Parnamirim, a municipality that is part of the great Natal.
Things to keep in mind
For a full refund, cancel at least 7 days before the experience is scheduled to start or within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 1 guests ages 18 and up can attend.
You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
Try to wear a bathing suit that you feel comfortable with. Surfing wearing a swimsuit, lycra blouse, t-shirt and/or shorts, helps to make you feel comfortable at the time of the wipe outs, which will be many at this beginning.
