Where do we meet?
We pick you up from your accommodation in Lagos or Praia da Luz or from the nearest meeting point (if access to your place is difficult due to traffic or narrow streets). You can also meet us directly on the beach if you prefer! We will let you know the meeting details after your booking is done.
1. To the beach
We start pickups around 9-10 am (time may vary due to tide and swell conditions). We'll pick you up from your accommodation in Lagos or Praia da Luz, or from the nearest meeting point. The drive to the surf spot takes approximately 15 to 40 minutes, depending on the beach we choose.
2. Getting ready
We observe the conditions, give you the equipment, and prepare for the lesson. We do the theoretical part, safety rules and warm-up!
3. Let's surf
We surf in total 3 hours. The sessions can last equal or different times. As we adjust to the conditions and always choose the best time for you to surf, be ready to have a small or a big break in between the sessions or even surf straight 2 surf sessions without a break.
4. Back to Lagos
We finish around 13-15 pm. While we are packing and organising the cars and equipment you can relax and enjoy some drinks in local beach cafes. We are back in Lagos around 14-16 pm.
Softboards are constructed of an EPS core, with dual stringers for strength, and an XEPE sandwich deck, and include soft molded fins for safety. These boards offer increased floatation and durability. Softboards in our school are available in lengths from 6’0 – 9’0. We use modern epoxy soft boards that are light, easy to handle, have good floatation, safe for beginner surfers and people around. These boards are really similar to regular hard boards with the only difference of soft coverage outside. We use soft boards from well-known brands such as "Ocean&Earth", "Rip Curl", and "Mick Fanning". If you require a hard board, be aware that we don‘t give hard boards on the first surf lesson due to safety reasons. After the first surf lesson, the instructors can make a decision about giving you a hardboard or not. The size and type of a surf board are determined by our instructors due to your height/weight and level of surfing.
We use wax on surfboards to create a grippy surface, helping surfers maintain better traction while riding waves. The wax provides a non-slip layer, enhancing foot grip and stability, which is essential for balance and control during surfing. In our school the instructors put wax on the surfboards. If you feel slippery on a board while surfing you can always ask an instructor to put some wax on your board.
We provide you with a "Rip Curl" wetsuit. We have all sizes of wetsuits with us in the van, so you don‘t need to worry about your size. If you have your own suit you are welcome to use it. The average annual water temperature in the Algarve is around 18.5°C. For surfing for at least 2 hours and not getting cold you need a wetsuit. We provide our students with 3/2 Ripcurl wetsuits, which means that 3 mm thickness is found for the core of the wetsuit, and 2 mm thickness is placed in the arms and legs. So less thickness in the arms and legs gives you more flexibility to paddle and maneuver, while 3mm thickness in the core allows you to stay warmer longer. This type of wetsuit is ideal for active surfing for 3 hours. We don't use thicker wetsuits as they are more tough and restrain your movements in the water. All the wetsuits are thoroughly washed after each use.
Leashes help keep you attached to your surfboard. Your leash allows you to fall on a wave, or bail your board when you’re in a difficult position in the impact zone. After you fall down, you are then able to recover your board and get back out into the line-up. Without a leash, you’re forced to swim and retrieve your board wherever it ends up. Besides that, losing your board can also be dangerous to other swimmers and surfers. The basic formula to grab the right one for you is to make sure that the leash is at least the length of your board. The less experience you have, the longer your leash should be. In our school the instructors choose leashes for you and teach you how to use them properly.
