How we work

Our methodology results from the conviction that the surfing experience can be interpreted by different individuals in different ways, since some people see surfing as a sport, others as leisure and even as a philosophy or lifestyle.

Evolution phases structure our methodology.

Consequently, our lessons are organised according to students’ surfing skills, experience, age and surfing goals the teaching method of our surf school is structured according to the ancestral surfing philosophy, dating back to several centuries ago when surfing meant having fun and enjoying nature.
