Surf Lessons & Courses

We teach surfing to all ages and levels, from complete beginners to advanced. Surfing lessons are available as single lessons or as packs of up to seven days.

We are very flexible and can create a customized surf package that will perfectly fit your holiday schedule in Cabarete. Contact us for a friendly, no-obligation consultation and we can talk about your individual needs.

Beginners will be catching waves and standing during their first surf lesson. More advanced students will learn valuable techniques to improve their performance. Get ready to have loads of fun in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Beginner Lessons

This description is based on our 3 day beginner surf course. We also run 5 day and 7 day surf courses that teach additional surfing skills (and the chance to catch more waves).

Day 1

Land and ocean knowledge

Learn about body position for surfing, paddling and taking off by using a board simulator on land.

Learn to ride the white water! With your instructor you’ll enter the ocean on a large beginner board and will practice positioning, paddling, taking off and catching waves.

Day 2

Learn how to evaluate wave conditions

Discovering vital information about wave size, direction and second periods.

More practice on the board simulator and learning to take off and turn in the frontside.

Back into the water to put what you’ve learned into practice. Surf, surf, surf!

Day 3

Further ocean knowledge

Swap your beginner board for a 7.2 Malibu board.

Learn to sit on the line up and select waves.

Learn the rules of surf riding.

Advanced Lessons

For those who already have a little (or a lot) of surfing experience, we provide lessons tailor-made for your skill level. One of our professional instructors will evaluate your abilities and together you’ll work on improving your level of surfing. We can help you fine tune your skills and teach you some tricks, like improving your duck dive or floater, learning how to get some air, or learning some other exciting and radical maneuvers.
