SURFER ARE YOU?
LIFE IS A WAVE
Wave Soul instructors each have a unique style of teaching that will guide you towards achieving your surfing goals. It is important to let us know before arriving which is your previous surf experience so we can adjust the lessons to maximize your weeks progress.
Sometimes it can be hard for you to tell us your surf level as "Intermediate" can be very open. We provide a list of different surf stages for you to determine with which one you feel identified.
Level 0 - Never surfed or surfed a few times but still have difficulty standing and balancing on a board and you struggle to catch waves unassisted in the white water.
Level 1 - You are able to catch and stand on broken waves most of the times. You feel fairly comfortable with take offs, balancing and standing up on small waves. You are still having difficulties timing and taking off on green unbroken waves most of the time and are unable to do basic turns and ride the wave face or trim (by the side).
Level 2 - You are able to catch green waves on your own half of the times but still need to refine timing and take off, mid face, bottom turns and riding the waves face.
Level 3 - You are able to catch waves on most attempts and do mid face turns as well as riding the waves face. You are having some difficulties with bottom turns and linking manoeuvres. You are able to develop top/bottom turns and basic cut backs. You understand and control short boards.
Level 4 - You feel comfortable with take offs, mid face and bottom turns. You are also a able to link manoeuvres, do basic cut backs but still have difficulties with late take offs and tightening manouvres.
