ROXY 2.0

Our girls only intermediate surf course features dedicated tuition for those ready to hone their skills. Surf the Algarve’s stunning coastline and learn new skills & techniques to last a lifetime.

WHO'S THE WEEK FOR?

If you’d like to make serious improvements to your surfing skills and can already pop up and ride left and right on unbroken waves without being guided, this course is for you! Aimed more at intermediate surfers who've been on a number of surf holidays or honed their skills at home, after an initial assessment we'll build a personalized plan that suits which ever level you're at and the specific skills you need to learn. 

EXPERT TUITION

Your dedicated coach will create a tailored plan for the week based on your current skills and goals. The theory, forecasting, equipment and safety lessons combined with hours of practice time in the water will have you surfing better, for longer with icreased confidance. Check out the what’s included on the course and more info on the course designer below.

MEET INES

Meet Inês, our dedicated Roxy 2.0 surf coach. Inês has dedicated her life’s study to surfing, successfully competing globally and achieving the status of Portuguese national surfing champion. This is a passionate coach whose twenty three years of surfing and seventeen years coaching experience makes her an esteemed part of the Tiny Whale team.

My objective is to provide a superior surf coaching experience. This week is all about making you a better surfer

Inês is a committed and educated surf expert holding a degree in athletic training and surf coaching. She has lived, surfed and instructed in Portugal for most of her life and her range of knowledge and experience is second to none.

On this course you’ll build new memories, new friendships, new goals and hopefully find some perfect waves!

Coach to Sergio Cosme, big wave rider (Nazaré) and with the ability to train surfers of all levels from novice through to competition levels, Inês provides a unique, efficient and detailed training experience.

Inês will monitor the conditions with you each day aiming for clean, waist to chest high waves and making sure you experience the best waves possible on your course.

"UNFORGETTABLE, PRICELESS WEEK!"

“This was the best surf training I ever had in my 8 years of surfing. Inês has a lot of tips and tricks, pushes you and makes you feel safe. Prepare to put in the work, arrive fit and you’ll profit from her training. I absolutely recommend this Package for girls who already feel comfortable paddling for waves. Thanks Tiny Whale!” — Philine, 2017
