If you can swim safely, you can join our courses from the age of 6.
Otherwise: if you feel ready, we will take you with us and show you the wonderful moments in the waves. No matter if you are a beginner or a pro, small or big, young or old. This also applies to your height and weight. We have wetsuits up to size 3XL and also bigger boards.
If you are limited by illness or other circumstances, we need to know this in advance. We will see how we can support you and will inform you about the conditions on the days. Participation in a surf course is at your own risk.
We provide you with the surfboard, the leash that connects you to the board and a wetsuit (3:2mm long).
You have to bring your own swimwear, which you put on under your wetsuit for hygienic reasons (underpants are also fine). You can take a small amount of water with you to the beach and for the way to the beach: shoes (flip-flops are enough). Before you go to the beach you should put on sunscreen and afterwards you need a towel and dry clothes for the way back in the car.
Including transfer, preparation and follow-up, the surf lessons take about 4 hours. You can expect to be back at the hotel about 4 hours after the pick up time. 2 hours of that time you will be on the beach with the surf instructor and as much time as possible will be spent in the water practicing.
All our instructors are certified as surf instructors and as lifeguards. Due to their experience and qualification they choose the best spot on the beach and take care that you don’t get into dangerous situations (like a dangerous RIP-current).
Our course times depend on the tides. We teach beginner courses at the best possible conditions i.e. only when it is possible for you to walk into the water without having to lie down on the board and paddle or swim. As the tide shifts every day, our course times are also different every day and can therefore be very early (sunrise) and very late (sunset).
We recommend for a first contact with the sport to take at least 3 courses to become more confident on the board and in the water. This is also recommended by the ISA (the International Surf Association). Each person is individual and can best judge for themselves how their learning curve and constitution is. Otherwise ask your surf instructor what he can recommend as next steps. You can book as many courses as you want (from the 7th course on it is only 45€ in a group of 8).
