Although we create a fun and enjoyable environment, CostaNoroestes' Surf Camp our primary concern is safety. We center our safety mission around the following elements:
1. Participant Review/Individualised Program
We ask that all participants have solid swimming skills before attending surf classes with our school, as surfingdoes require some swimming experience. Our program will place participants with an instructor who specializes in teaching at that student's particular skill level. All our instructors are certified surf instructors as well as beach life guards.
Our surf school has the support of brands such as NSP, BIC, RIP CURL Gath helmets. All surf equipment is renewed every year so that you will always use the best and newest equipment during your learning with us.
All instructors are skilled surfers & kiteboarders with years of ocean experience and competitive surfing experience, having taught at professional level. They are friendly and competent, and excellent role models in all respects. All are European Lifeguard certified and schooled in water safety. They have extensive training in teaching beginner and advanced surfing techniques. Our Kiteboarding instructors have been formed and accredited by the International Kitesurfing Organization (IKO). At Costa N-Oeste Surf Camp we also maintain a low student-to-teacher ratio to ensure you receive the attention you need.
Every day, our instructors will choose the surf spot according to wave & current conditions and also according to student’s needs. The students will learn about safe handling of equipment, safety on the water, currents & all the necessary knowledge to practice surfing on the safest & most fun manner. All classes take place at Famara beach.
