Lesson 1: Starts with a theory lesson: Types of waves and how they behave and how to recognise and deal with riptides. Your instructor will then demonstrate how to lie properly on the board and how to pop up to standing. After ample opportunity to practice this on our super comfortable ‘carpet boards’, you will be assigned a board, based on your size and weight and you will move into a pool to practice paddling as well as mounting and dismounting the board. Once you are confident, the lesson moves into the ocean. You will start riding whitewater waves. These are foamy broken waves that have the benefit of being more buoyant, allowing you to float at lower speed and making learning easier. By the end of the first lesson almost everyone manages to ride their first wave, and there is no need to worry: The water is warm and you will only be getting in chest-deep!
Lesson 2: Your instructor will demonstrate basic stretches to prepare your muscles for strength and confidence when surfing. Having reviewed the theory from lesson 1 and again practiced popping up, you will be introduced to the balance board - every surfer's best friend! This is indispensable tool for balance training. The water based part of the lesson will be focussed on perfecting your popping up to an confidence riding whitewater waves.
Lesson 3: You are now able to stand up and surf towards the shore, but it is now time to take full control of your speed and direction! The lesson will begin with a demonstration of the proper technique for turning from your instructor and he will run through some dry land practice techniques. The aim of the surfing part is for you to make your first turns and surf along some waves!
Lesson 4: This lesson is very important because it concerns reaching the line up and surfing a proper, unbroken wave. You will first learn the surf etiquette you need for line up and how to reach it using eskimo rolls. You then practice sitting up and turning the board from this position in the pool, then the most exciting moment - finally paddling out onto the lineup and surfing your first proper wave! Your instructor will always be on hand for encouragement and coaching tips!
Lesson 5: This lesson teaches you how to "read" the ocean and pick the appropriate waves. You will learn how to determine between left and right waves, and practice surfing along the wave rather than off of it.
Lesson 6: The course ends a surf trip! You will load your boards on top of our van (with the help of your instructor) and drive to a Balinese reef surf spot (around 20-30 minutes away). Reef breaks are longer, with more consistent waves and tend to stat near the same spot. Surfing one really gives the true feeling of surfing. Upon arrival your instructor will explain the specifics of the spot showing the points of orientation and the best places to enter and exit the water. You will do some stretches while watching the waves and then get in, putting the previous lessons into perfect practice. As ever, your instructor will be right there with you for safety support and encouragement.
