Peru is a particular surf spot for the lessons and there are multiple surf beaches that you will visit, depending upon the condition of the day and the level of the surfers.
These lessons will be directly in the waves with one of the coaches, who will guide them in the waves, teaching and correcting. Getting outside, crossing the white water (turtle, dock dive), correct paddling and position in longboard and shortboard, wave selection and surfing across the wave will be taken care of. After bottom turns, one of the instructors will be in the shore, filming and taking pictures, for a following video coaching, where they will be analyzed and corrected in technique, and posture among others.
Lessons will be organized during the early morning (two hours) and practice with supervision during the afternoon (two hours). A total of four hours of surfing per day.

You will learn from not only your instructor, but also from your teammates. Surf Sisters will support and encourage each other, from the women who are catching their first waves ever to those progressive surfers who are looking to improve their surfing techniques.
