Surf Coaching Portugal

- For the independent surfer with a strong desire to get better through improved technique.
- Comfortable in a range of conditions you’re keen to better your surf- and ocean awareness.

A typical day

    • We’ll evaluate the conditions each day to find the optimal conditions for you to have fun and grow as a surfer.

    • After each surf you’ll receive in-depth personal feedback or join a video analysis session to maximise the effect of the course.

    • These videos will be available to you during your next visit to better ensure your development over time.

    • In the afternoons we encourage you to either go free surfing with the crew or kick back and explore the full range of fun activities on offer with the other campers.

Who is surf Coaching for?

  • The surf coaching course is created for independent surfers who can do maneuvers in a variety of conditions.

  • Already comfortable in a crowded lineup with a good understanding of surfing etiquette, you’re able to read waves and catch waves independently.

  • Experienced in putting turns together you’re interested in specific feedback on the critical aspects of your surfing.

“I’M CATCHING MORE WAVES”

  • Paulo switched between giving tips in the water and filming on the beach, and gave each surfer one or two things he or she should work on. I was told that I needed to get more comfortable in bigger waves and use my arms more. I brought all the tips and videos back home, and I still turn to them here in Norway, which improves my surfing, make me catch more waves and have more fun in the surf.
