What you'll do
Lesson Structure: Part 1-Land Lesson: Lessons start on the beach with thirty minutes of instruction and practice. Students learn techniques for paddling, standing, falling, dodging and selecting waves along with surfer's etiquette, stretching and much more. Part 2-Water Surf Lesson: After students have learned the techniques on land, we move into the ocean!! During this time the instructor will push and coach students into waves, tell students what they are doing right, or wrong so they are surfing on their own by the end of the lesson.
Aldo & I met each other in the UK at the popular surfing destination Newquay. Aldo who has been surfing since the age of 12 taught Sarah how to surf and she fell instantly in love with it. They decided they wanted to make surfing their life. They decided to set up a surf camp but knew they wanted to head somewhere warmer and wanted a new adventure. So in 2006 they bought a camper van and travelled the entire west cost of Europe to find the perfect surf spot surfing all along the way. When they arrived at Arrifana they knew they had struck gold. The beach was uncrowded the waves were pumping and the weather was hot. They opened the surf lodge in the Summer of 2007 and have never looked back. Aldo is a great and passionate surf coach and Sarah inspired by her love of food offers hearty homemade meals to the hungry surfers.
