WHO'S THE WEEK FOR?

If you can pop up and ride unbroken waves without being guided, you’re ready for this course! Build your water confidence, read surf forecasts well, understand 'trimming' and learn your first proper turns and cutbacks. Intermediates-only weeks are all about progressing and learning new skills to help you get most out of surfing.

CONDITIONS & WAVES

Spring and autumn bring great swell, low wind, and quiet beaches here meaning great sessions for you! We’re located close to a large range of beaches on both the south coast - with swell from the Gulf of Cádiz, and the South West coast - with swell from the North Atlantic Ocean. A variety of breaks at a variety of angles including beach, point, and rivermouth breaks combined with Tariq’s intricate knowledge of the area and dedication to getting you out at peak condition times each day mean you’ll get the best possible sessions!
