Size matters! And as surf courses go, this means: Smaller is better!
Our surf courses take place in small groups with a maximum of six participants. This allows us to provide optimal and individual care of each surf student during their own learning process.
The mini-group system allows us we to organize the lessons in a more flexible manner. We choose the best surf spot and the best tide for you to surf each day. We offer our all students an individualized program where we focus on your personal progress and help you find success in the water.
Our program tailored to beginners includes mastering the basic techniques of surfing. In the beginning of the course you will learn how to position yourself correctly on the board, how to select the right waves and how to paddle into them and how to take off the board. When you safely pick up the basics you can move on to the next level and try to catch your first real wave. The course consists of surf theory and practical exercises on land, as well as in the water. The duration of a lesson day is about 5-6 hours.
Remember, surfing is a natural sport, therefore, we have to adapt to the daily weather and wave conditions. Depending on the waves and tides on each particular day there will be one long or two shorter surf sessions.
The course structure is in accordance with the ISA (International Surfing Association) guidelines. The surf course can be booked as a daily or weekly course (5 days). The weekly course includes a video analysis session, which is an indispensable help reaching ones individual surfing goals. To complete our weekly courses, we will visit the Fatum surfboard manufacture, where you'll get an exciting insight into the process of creating a surfboard.
If you want to learn how to surf quickly, the intensive, 1-on-1 surf lessons offered by Surf Taxi Peniche is the best choice for you.

We recommend this type of course to all surf enthusiasts who value maximum individuality. Video analysis is available for private courses. After each surf session there will be an additional video analysis, where your surf instructor will give you valuable tips based on the recorded material.
