Surfing Lessons

Before we show you how ours Surf Lessons works, did you knew that 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! 

Now, you know more about Surfing, you are ready to star ours Surf Lessons.

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 lesson. As a result, to give better oriented, effective and secure lessons, six levels of learning were established, each of which with its own set of specific goals.

Students only advance to the next level after fulfilling all the requirements of the previous level.
