Surfing Levels
Our mission is to make sure that you are safe and comfortable during your surf lesson, that you get the most out of it and that you have fun! To do this, it is important to choose the type of lesson that suits your surfing level. These are our 3 levels:
(If you have any doubts about your level, we recommend that you start with level 1)

Surfing level 1
Level 1 is for surfers who:
● Are going surfing for the first time;
● Have already tried it but do not surf very often;
● They are not in as good shape as they could be.
What does a level 1 lesson consist of? You will learn how to pop-up, paddle and handle the board on foamy waves close to the beach. Level 1 is a great starting point, allowing the surfer to make great progress quickly, gain confidence and get to know our beaches better before moving on to the next level.

Surfing level 2
Level 2 is for surfers who:
● Can consistently perform a technically correct pop-up;
● Are trying to catch green waves.
What does a level 2 lesson consist of? You will learn to paddle efficiently, intelligently and safely. You will learn how to find the channel, choose the waves, angle out and create speed on the wave. We will also teach you to understand "surf etiquette". 

Surfing level 3
Level 3 is for surfers who:
● Can catch green waves consistently, without the need for assistance.
What does a level 3 lesson consist of? You will learn how to find the surf line: perform and perfect manoeuvres, increase speed and fluidity. This is done with the help of a coach who will prescribe exercises and do a video analysis if necessary. 
It is very important when choosing your lesson with us that you take these differences between the various levels into account. Be honest with yourself and make the right choice. Do not forget that our main objectives are the safety and enjoyment of all.
