What you'll do
Regardless of the experience level, every lesson have a duration of 2 hours: the theoretical part is in the first 20 – 30 minutes, immediately followed by the warm-up, and then it’s 1 hour and 30 – 40 minutes of practice in the water. The role of the instructor adapts to the experience and progress of the student, always encouraging his/her autonomy and stepping in to suggest, correct and criticise through a thorough analysis and continuous feedback. By providing a set of goals (each with specific content), students can better evaluate themselves, manage their challenges and expectations and, along with their instructor, learn, improve and thrive. These lessons promise a lot of fun and are aimed not only at students who want to venture in a surf lesson for the first time but also for those who are already familiar with the sport, since the group members are always divided by the instructors according to their experience level. It’s a great environment for those who enjoy learning in a group, challenge the others while being challenged in return, and share a lot of laughs. It’s also a great opportunity to check what students consider their physical/psychological limitations, and get to the end of the lesson completely worn-out (there’s no way we can deny that), but with a sense of fulfilment and self-accomplishment by overcoming those said limitations.
Since I was born and raised in Vila Nova de Milfontes, I ended up by creating a strong connection with this land. What fascinates me about surfing is the possibility to set out a direct relationship with Nature and the feeling of peacefulness conveyed by the sea. Surf is like a shelter from daily routine, an opportunity to chill-out and switch off from the outside world – more than a challenging sport I accepted it as a lifestyle. The eagerness to make the difference and stimulate this town are the main points that had a great influence in the acceptance of such commitment. Talkative and curious by nature, I enjoy travelling and making new friends. I feel particularly intrigued when meeting people from other parts of the World, with different experiences and who, just like me, are ready to listen and share a good story!
