Surf School Surfing Lessons

Surfing is a sport in which the practitioner slides on the waves with the aid of a board. The first written report of surfing was made by Captain James Cook, who watched people surf the waves, standing on floating structures. From then until now, the sport has had an exponential increase in both fans and practitioners, across the planet, bringing men, women, adults and children to the beach all year round!

Teaching Methodology of Surf Lessons

For better organization of the students and management of the surf lessons, 7ª Essência considers the technical level of its students, their age group, the environmental conditions and the location of the class. As a result, to give better oriented, effective and secure classes, six levels of learning were established, each of which with its own set of specific goals.
