Full description
Meet at the local partner's kiosk, located near the car park at Galé Beach. You'll be provided with a wetsuit and surfboard and, after that, it's time time to get started. The lesson starts with a short warm-up and safety briefing right before you get in the water. The first part of the lesson consists of learning how to get to the waves. After practising that for a while, you'll get out of the water and learn how to stand up on your board while catching the waves. You'll work on that for the rest of the lesson as well, with the instructors by your side helping you and giving you direct feedback while you're in the water.

I was the only person to sign up for the class on a chilly winter morning. Surprisingly, the instructor did not cancel and I ended up getting a private lesson with the whole beach to myself. The instructor was really friendly and constructive with feedback to help me improve my technique

Really fun lesson, one of the highlights of our trip. Lots of time spent in the water with a few instructors all helping - they watched and told us how to improve which was really helpful. Both of us were beginners but were able to stand up a few times by the end of the lesson. They got some great pictures of us too, 10/10 would recommend!

Nooit gesurft en toch een aantal keren voor elkaar gekregen om te blijven staan, dankzij het vakkundig lesgeven. Het begon met een wetsuit aantrekken en dan heb je het absoluut niet koud meer in de zee. Eerst wat yoga oefeningen en dan de uitleg hoe jezelf in een golf mee kan krijgen terwijl je op de surfplank ligt. Daarna werd techniek uitgelegd hoe je uiteindelijk snel op een surfplank kan staan. Het ging goed maar ook vaak fout en dan krijg je goede feedback waar ik op moet letten de volgende keer en dat help enorm. Echt super ervaring en ik kan het iedereen aanraden.
