Surf for kids

Moby Dick surf school has packs with surf lessons and other leisure activities for children between 8 and 14 years old, between 9h and 17h, on week days.

The goal is to promote well-being and the growth in the outdoors, in permanent contact with nature and the sea.

These activities are a way of empowering children to evolve, stimulating their abilities while providing happy moments of coexistence and mutual help. The contact with nature, during our walks in the mountain, and the practice of sports at sea, such as surfing and bodyboarding, contribute in a very positive way to the health and development of the children.

Surf lessons for children and other leisure activities

At Moby Dick Surf School we want to provide memorable surf experiences and other outdoor activities for kids.

In addition to the surf lessons, we offer a diversity of activities, such as mountain walks, skateboarding, ping pong, balance board and some more group activities.

These activities are schedule weekly, according to weather conditions and sea state.
Surfing is the primary activity, so we focus on acting in a responsible and conscious way to provide fun and safe moments for our groups.

The parents will be informed of the weekly plan in the beginning of the week and will be informed daily of a specific plan for each day.

How do our surf lessons for kids work?

Our surf lessons for children will be separated into age groups and surf level, with one instructor for four children at most.

We separate the lessons for beginners, or those who never practiced surf, from intermediate lessons, in which the children have already a few previous notions of the practice:

Beginners level: for those who never surfed before, the main goals are to get used to be in the ocean with a surfboard and to gain some basic notions, such as how to lie, paddle and how to stand up on the surfboard.

Intermediate level: for students who already have some experience surfing, the goals are to increase and perfect knowledge and techniques. We teach the children how to do their first maneuvers, how to chose which waves and surf spots to go to, how to evaluate safely the conditions of the sea and we teach them surf ettiquete/rules and principles.

What do the activities include?

  • Full homemade lunch at our lodge and one picnic day.
