"How will my intermediate surf course be?"

You are already familiar with surfing, you have been in the water several times and you feel ready to progress in your surfing..

Intermediate level classes can be structured in three parts:

  1. Theoretical introduction about the sea conditions each day, the spot, the board we have chosen, and each one's objectives for the session
  2. Theoretical-practical part on the sand where we practice how to stand up according to what the wave demands and how to position the body and use our weight to gain speed and draw lines on the wave
  3. Practice in the water where the instructor accompanies and guides us at all times, helps us, directs us, giving us feedback after each wave, and expands our objectives as we progress.

We agree on the session's objective with the instructor, considering that the main goal is to enjoy the sea and get some exercise.
We will do a specific warm-up to activate the body and explain how to stretch after the session.
