Beginner lessons

The beginning is always the most fun. Especially since you will usually imagine things differently to the actual reality. At the beginning of the surf lessons, you will learn about the theory of surfing, safety, weather, and wave conditions. After this, you will have surfing lessons in the ocean. After spending several hours in the water, you will learn more on theory and repeat what you have already learned.

Surf lessons will usually take place on the Baleal beach with English instructions. Once you get comfortable with the power of the ocean, Tribu Surf will record some of your best waves, which will be explained in detail during the surf analysis. So, you can be sure that you will know everything you need to know to make your surfing progress swift and pleasurable.

The lessons will take place in the morning, three days in a row, followed by a day of rest day where you can go shopping or take some trips followed by another two days of lessons. For those who spend more than seven days, the order for rest day and lesson days will be agreed upon with Tribu staff.
