GREEN WAVE

A course designed to make you a more complete all round surfer, this is a week where surfing comes first. Strategically placed in March, May, October and November - our Greenwave weeks take place right when Portugal's best waves hit.

 

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. Greenwave weeks are all about progressing and learning new skills to help you get most out of surfing.

HIGH LEVEL COACHING

Coaching is broken down into easy to digest detailed chunks. Learning and progression are the goals and you can expect a variety of teaching methods including theory lessons, carving skate sessions, muscle memory exercises, in water instruction and a large chunk of video coaching.  

MEET TARIQ

The coach of our intermediate and advanced courses. With over nine years of experience and extensive knowledge of the Portuguese coasts, Tariq is the perfect coach for surfers looking to enhance their surf skills.

This week is about hitting the best surf, whether that's a 6am dawnie or a sunset session! Together we'll read the conditions and find the best waves the Algarve serves up!

As an ISA Level 2 instructor and a qualified personal trainer he's an expert in his field, trained to develop and lead courses from novice levels through to advanced and competition ready surfers.

 

Watching yourself surf is such a powerful tool. We'll analyze videos of your sessions so you can really see where and how to improve.

Having lived, surfed and instructed in the area for the past years Tariq has intricate knowledge of a variety of beaches, breaks and the right conditions required for each location, meaning you will have the best possible surf sessions on your course.
