Surf lessons in Figueira da Foz? How does it work? How much is it? I want to try it!

A surf lesson is a unique and unforgettable moment. Starts with you putting on a wetsuit, grabbing the board and running to the sea. Getting to the beach and warming up looking at the water to discover the best waves. And then, the best part, the feeling of sliding on a wave until you reach the sand.

The logistics of a surf lesson are very simple. You just need to bring a bathing suit and your good mood; we take care of the rest.

Each surf lesson is divided into 3 key moments: warm-up, explanation and fun. After putting on the wetsuit and grabbing the board, we go together to the seaside, where we start the warm-up. During warm-up you will do some mobility exercises and activate the cardiorespiratory system, usually with traditional games and small exercises.

Still on the beach, we start an explanation about surfing techniques, the material, safety rules and how the class will go in the water. At this stage, you can (and should) clarify any doubts. After listening to the theory, you will try to put your new surfing techniques into practice by training them in the sand.

And now it is fun time! Grab the board and everything you’ve learned and you’re ready to get in the water and start surfing. You start by catching white waves and small waves and as your level grows, you can start dreaming of bigger and more challenging waves.

At the end of the class, we get out of the water together and head to the school, where you should help to store the material you have used.

Each lesson lasts 90 minutes.

For years I wanted to stop being just a 'bathtub surfer'... Thanks to the incredible people from Dude and their motivation to teach, I started my journey on surf. Now I don't think about anything other than going back to the water whenever I can!
