"When children begin to surf, they become not only healthier and looking life in a good way. They become children with striking and confident personalities themselves." (Grutemberg, 1987)
In this initial surfing state, the overall objective is to provide a quality education and to engage the child in the context and culture of surfing, on a cheerful and safe environment.
The specific goals address the multilateral development which has essentially to do with the adaptation to the aquatic environment and at a later stage by the development of basic motor qualities indispensable for learning the Surfing techniques.
Other goals, in a more advanced and medium / long-term stage, is the formation of surfers and competitors.
In these lessons we apply an appropriate method considering the children´s age and technical level, with special attention to safety through the use of appropriate equipment ("softboards", for example) and preferably with private lessons: 1 kid to 1 Instructor.
