The Surf School / Surf Camp welcomes all age groups, boys / girls, seniors and children who want to learn how Surf. Normally during the summer months (July) most common ages range from 10 to 18 years old, with an average of 15-16 years old.
However we believe it’s never too late to learn how to surf and in recent years the demand of adults that want to come to the Surf Camps has been impressive (especially in August and September).
Students are monitored in groups of no more than 6 students per instructor, this way we ensure a one-to-one approach with maximum safety.
We like to build a relationship based on mutual trust between instructors and students, but there are simple and clear compliance rules about schedules, noise, safety, and night-time curfew.. that if the minor breaks, will be sent home without the right to any refund. We do not make exceptions.
Sure, it’s always good to use the boards that you’re more familiar with and this way be able to evolve on them. At The Surf School we have loads of surfboards of different sizes, so even if you bring your stuff, if you feel like trying other boards you can still go for it.
Most of the activities happen on the beach, so you won’t need much: bathing suit, flip flops, sunscreen, insect repellent, your toilet kit, towel, sweatshirt, shorts and long trousers, in case it gets a bit chilly.
Bring a camera because you’ll always want a souvenir of your surf camp and some money if you want to book an extra tour, walk around town, buy an ice cream, etc.
As for the documents we recommend bringing: your ID and health card.
