Regardless of the experience level, every lesson have a duration of 2 hours: the theoretical part is in the first 20 – 30 minutes, immediately followed by the warm-up, and then it’s 1 hour and 30 – 40 minutes of practice in the water.
The role of the instructor adapts to the experience and progress of the student, always encouraging his/her autonomy and stepping in to suggest, correct and criticise through a thorough analysis and continuous feedback.
By providing a set of goals (each with specific content), students can better evaluate themselves, manage their challenges and expectations and, along with their instructor, learn, improve and thrive.
These lessons promise a lot of fun and are aimed not only at students who want to venture in a surf lesson for the first time but also for those who are already familiar with the sport, since the group members are always divided by the instructors according to their experience level.
It’s a great environment for those who enjoy learning in a group, challenge the others while being challenged in return, and share a lot of laughs. It’s also a great opportunity to check what students consider their physical/psychological limitations, and get to the end of the lesson completely worn-out (there’s no way we can deny that), but with a sense of fulfilment and self-accomplishment by overcoming those said limitations.
