HOW IT WORKS

The Surf courses are given normally from Monday to Friday. You will surf twice a day, and each surf session last approximately 2h. So, if you spend your days behind the desk, don't forget to practise some sports before your surfing holidays.

 

The surf spot and class schedule choice are made according to the surf instructor's experience, considering safety, sea and weather conditions, participant's skills (and sure, variety), splitting groups, whenever it seems convenient and sending them to different spots that best match the skills of the corresponding group. 

 

Depending on the conditions and on the level of the students, the lessons can take place at different surf spots within a range of 20 km from the surf school (15 minutes by car). In this case, you will be away for the lesson for a total of 5/6 hours.

 

It all starts at our surf school base, 2 minutes walking from the beach. There you find a dressing and chill out area, with a shower.

 

At our surf lessons, we have a ratio of one surf instructor and one surf assistant for a group of 8 participants.

 

The regular Schedule works like this:

- 09.50 – Meeting point et RIPAR Surf Camp

- 10.00 – Departure to the beach

- 10.15 – The lesson starts

- 12.15 – Lunch time!

- 13.00 – On the water.

- 15.00 – Return to the Surf Camp

 

This is an example of the most normal schedule. But often occurs schedules changes due to tides and ocean conditions. We may start earlier (around 8h am) or finish at the sunset.

- 20 hours of surf lessons per week / 5 days / 2 sessions per day / 2 hours each
