Surf Lessons for beginners in Uvita
A student is considered a beginner when he has not had previous experience in surfing. Also, if his surfing practice has been interrupted and he have not developed the necessary skills to run the waves on his own.
At the beginner level most of the work is done in white water and the wave is run perpendicular to the shoreline.
At our surf school, the surf lessons in Uvita consists of a theoretical part and a practical part.
The THEORY takes place in our facilities or on the beach in front of the surf spot.
The beginner level of the surf school includes the following topics
- History of surfing,
- The surfboard and its parts.
- The types of wave and how to identify them,
- Aspects related to the safety of the participants.
- General explanation about the activity to be carried out in the water.
The instructor will demonstrate proper paddling technique and how to stand up on the board. Then exercises will be practiced on land in preparation for later doing them in the water.
The PRACTICE takes place at sea from one of the local beaches. We usually offer lessons from the Marino Ballena National Park but other beaches we commonly visit are Dominical, Dominicalito and Hermosa.
These are the best surf spots in the South Pacific.
During practice the instructor will stay with the students at all times to ensure their safety and learning.
The main goal is to stand up in as many waves as possible.
