Peniche is a small town that used to be known as a fishermen's town until it gained the fame of the wave capital, and for a good reason that is. Because of it's specific shape of a peninsula, no matter the conditions - swell or wind direction, there are always waves to surf, every day of the year. Besides more or less 25 surf spots, it also offers enless beaches and breathtaking views in more than 300 sunny days per a year.
ABOUT THE SURF CAMP
In order to provide the best service for our guests, we teamed up with the head coach of Rip Curl Surf Camp Portugal. Representing the ultimate surf brand, we take pride in the fact that our surf lessons are reflecting it's quality and innovation, and are the standard others are measured by.
ABOUT THE SURF INSTRUCTORS
Classes are taught by locals; experienced surfers and certified Surf Instructors, who teach surfing in a safe and responsible manner, and at the same time make sure that you are having the best time of your life catching waves. Thanks to them, most of our students are able to stand on the board on the first lesson riding broken waves all the way to the beach, and by the end of the week surfing real green waves, turning both left and right.
ABOUT THE SURF LESSONS
Wheather you are complete begginner or an intermediate surfer looking for some tips to improve your performance, we provide personal, caring and professional surf lessons, adapting the teaching technics to each individual. Thats also the reason why we keep the groups relatively small - 5 students per 1 instructor, for each student to get enough attention and optimal learning experience and still benefit from group motivation.
Once the introductions are done and a group is formed, a surf wagon will take you to the best spot to surf, depending on the conditions, previous surfing experience and the level of the group. Each surf lesson takes 2 hours. On the first lesson our surf instructor implements a short briefing giving you a proper introduction to the sport of surfing and science behind it, including the detailed explanation of surf equipment and safety measures that need to be followed so a lesson runs safely and smoothly. Before entering the everchanging environment in the water, you will also try the basic movement at the beach.
Once in the water, the instructor will be always by your side, restlessly giving you tips and pushing you to catch the waves until you develop your paddle to do so on your own. The more independent surfers will work on reaching the line-up, reading the waves, controlling their speed, rotation, drop and bottom turn to front and back side, later on also trimming and their first manuevers. All of that while also learning about the surfing rules of priority and mutual respect among surfers and towards the environment.
In a weekly programme we also include photo and video analysis, which proved to be an indispendsable method in the process of learning surfing, as it gives you a very clear insight of what is happening in the water from other perspective.
Last but not least, as our student you will receive the appopriate equipment fitting your needs and level of surfing, as we have a wide range of surfboards and wetsuits at your disposal. You can also be completely relaxed, because you are completely covered by our insurance fort he full duration of the lesson.
