The surf camp's aim is to make you enjoy standing on a board as soon as possible. In order to obtain this result the surf school use its own teaching methods, which we have developed through out the years of experience giving surf lessons.
Though the surf lessons are mainly practical, we will not let you leave without knowing about currents, tides, surf material, wave forming and other interesting information about surfing.

The intermediate surf course consists of 20 surf lessons.
This is a course for people who already have taken surf lessons in another surf course and want to continue progressing as quickly as possible. The surf shool's aim is to make you catch the green waves (unbroken waves), start surfing their face and maybe even do your first turns. As the surf courses are given in small groups you will benefit from individual treatment and correction in order to achieve your goals.

This course is mainly focused on people surfing almost every wave’s face side wards, willing to correct this and starting their first turns in your surf lessons.

The surf course consists of 10 surf lessons, which are mainly practically focused to make you stand on the board as quick as possible. The course will introduce you in to the addictive world of surfing while you get your surf lessons. We recommend you stay of two weeks for a greater learning process, if you book this course.
Surf camp - Surf school: Bodyboard course
The Bodyboard course of the surf school consist of 10 lessons
The surf camp's aim is to board the green Wave (unbroken face of the wave) side wards and trying the first moves. There is a notably higher feeling of success bodyboarding compared to surfing as the learning progress evolutes much faster when you lie on a board. Bodyboarding is a radical sport, often mistakenly considered a sport for crab red sunburned tourists, in a Speedo boarding white water on a sponge. Big airs, radical moves and deep barrels is the real meaning of bodyboarding.
