Positive Wave Surf School & Camp Portugal Surf Camp Program

Positive Wave Surf School has surf lessons for everybody who wants to surf. The school and its teachers are certified by the Portuguese Surf Federation. The surf camp caters to four levels of surfing skills: beginners, intermediate, advanced, and pre-competition. Students will be at the beginners' level if they don't have surfing experience, or after an evaluation, they may join another surf level best suited to them.

The classes which are mixed have people of all ages. All equipment necessary is provided for the practice of surfing (surfboard and wetsuit). The school focuses on the safety of its students so that everyone can have his best surfing experience.

Beginner level

At the beginners' level, students will be accompanied by a surf instructor in the water. Students will have their first contact with the surf equipment, learn how to use it, and start surfing. They will be taught the following:

  • Basic security rules and safety on the water
  • Evaluation of sea conditions, current, and surf zones
  • How to enter the sea
  • How to make a good physical warm-up before entering the sea
  • How to stand up on the board (take-off)
  • How to stay upright and balanced on the board while surfing a wave
  • Knowledge of surfing equipment, its proper use, and the best conservation practices
  • Location of the point break
  • The right position on the board

Intermediate level

At the intermediate level, students are assumed to have acquired the surf knowledge at the beginners' level. They will learn how to surf the waves before breaking. They will be accompanied by a surf instructor in the water. Students will be taught the following:

  • How to catch waves before they break
  • How to pass the strongest beach break
  • How to surf and turn in the wave (bottom turn)
  • How to surf the "wall" of the wave

Advanced level

The advanced level requires students to have acquired all the surf knowledge of the previous two levels (beginners and intermediate). At this level, students will go by themselves to the sea, supervised by the surf teacher who will correct them and help them when necessary. Before entering the water in every lesson, students will be given instructions, information, and lesson plan. At this level, students will learn the following:

  • Basic surf maneuvers
  • How to catch waves
  • How to choose the "peak"
  • How to count the waves "set"
  • The wave of the "set" to be chosen
  • The position and right timing to catch the wave

Professional level (pre-competition)

At this level, all students must have learned and consolidated all the teachings of the three previous levels (beginners, intermediate, and advanced). Considered as a professional and pre-competition level, the physical and technical requirements are very high and require daily training so that students can achieve the best results. At this level, students will be taught the following techniques of surfing and surf practice maneuvers for qualification in competitions:
