How to start with surfing

If you are thinking about getting into this great sport, the beginner course is a right choice.  Depending on the weather and waves conditions, the teacher chooses a suitable surf break.  Your safety and easy learning are the priority. Most people start to surf on the first day !
The famous surf spots in Tarifa are beach Balneario (town beach), beach by hotel Arte Vida and Los Lances. Sometimes we also go to Algeciras, Linea de la Concepcion, El Palmar or Caños de Meca.
The 2 hour lesson begins on the beach with short theory about surf technique and safety, how to lay on the board and the technique of how to stand up. Then you hit the water, with the practice in the sea, trying to stand up on the board and surf small waves.
We run group lessons, semiprivate (2 to 1) or private classes (1 to 1).
