Private Surf Lessons
Do you want to learn how to surf fast? Then a private lesson is the best option for you. Sure, you’ll pay more, but you’ll be up on that board in no time. Like all private classes or lesson situations, the teacher or instructor has all eyes on you, the student. This will result in a faster learning curve and more specific training based on the students level.
Do you need to have any surfing experience for a private lesson? Absolutely not! If you’re a beginner you’ll get undivided attention from your surf instructor! You’ll be standing on that board before you know it. If you’re an intermediate level surfer, you’ll be able to focus more on performing basic surfing maneuvers such as carves, cut-backs and generating speed or even choosing the right wave.
Group Surf Lessons
Group Surfing Lessons are popular for a reason. It is an affordable way to start surfing, get back into it after a long break or to find out if this adrenaline driven sport is for you. Usually you’ll be in a group of 8 surf students with 1 instructor. At Fins First Surfschool however, we maintain a ratio of 6 students per 1 instructor. This way we can provide full attention to each surfer and assure the safety of our students.
Group Surfing Lessons are a good way to start surfing when you don’t have any experience or when you feel the need to refresh your surfing memory before you head back out there by yourself. Your Surf Instructor explains the basics, tells you all the ins and outs about surfing in Tenerife and you’ll get watertime to bring everything in practice. Of course under the guidance of our certified instructors, who will keep an eye out on all students during the entire lesson and will help out where they can. Keep in mind that you won’t be the only one in the lesson, the variety of levels can be big.
Semi-Private Surf Lessons
Looking for a group activity with your friends or family while on holiday in Tenerife? Try surfing all together. It’s kind of like a group lesson, but you get to decide who you team up with. A semi-private surf lesson can be booked for 2 up to 6 people. A semi-private for 2 people is €100,-, every extra person costs an additional €20. This could actually be a cheap option if you attend a class with 6 people. Or you can choose to go with only one other friend and see it is as a cheaper form of the private lesson.
Surf lessons for more than 6 people? Get in touch and we will provide an extra instructor.
