Full description
Learn or improve your surf skills at the beautiful Ipanema Beach near Rio de Janeiro. All instructors are professionals who, besides their technical and didactic skills, are nature lovers. With easy-to-understand instructions from your experienced surf teacher, you'll soon discover how to glide over the water.

The lesson begins with an introduction on the beach. Your instructor will give you information about the ocean conditions and talk about the safety guidelines. You will learn about the equipment, as well as proper surf etiquette. If this is your first time surfing, you'll then proceed to practicing the pop-up, the correct technique for standing up on your board. Don't worry, you'll catch on quickly. It’s really all about muscle memory.

Your lesson in the water will have a 1-hour duration. The instructor will be with you the whole time picking out the best waves for you and helping out with a push when needed. You'll only need to worry about standing up and enjoying the thrill of riding the waves.
