What you’ll learn

The main goal of our school is to provide a good introduction to surfing and the appropriate training, promoting self-reliance in and out of the water, using the right equipment, and giving you a fun start in this sport in conditions of safety and quality.

Goals of the course:

  • Know the culture, history and philosophy of surfing
  • Understand the sea (currents, wave formation, breakers)
  • Know how to identify possible hazards and deal with them
  • Learn surf etiquette and safety rules
  • Warm up properly before entering the water (stretching, breathing, etc.).
  • Know the different techniques for standing up on the board.
  • Know how to avoid injuries on your own or in company
  • Learn how to paddle out properly and the different techniques for getting through waves.
  • Understand the equipment; use and maintenance.
  • Understand the sea in all its dimensions and complexity so that you can surf safely all over the world, given that the conditions are very different on each beach

Our classes are dynamic and entertaining. We group our pupils according to age and level. So if there is a group with a more advanced level, we help them to make progress (learning turns, manoeuvres, technique, etc.) and to correct their mistakes. The activities are under constant supervision by our instructors. Our team consists of experienced professionals who know Barcelona’s beaches really well. They have more than ten years’ experience in the world of surfing, besides being qualified in first aid and lifesaving.

The ideal surfing beach

The Escola Catalana de Surf has its own special channels marked with buoys on the beaches at Barcelona and Castelldefels. Both beaches are ideal for novice surfers because the water is shallow and this facilitates the formation of low waves suited to beginners.

What’s more, the shallow waters ensure the presence of waves during most of the year, unlike other beaches such as in Barcelona or on the Maresme coast, where there is much less chance of getting good waves. For this reason, the Escola Catalana de Surf is able to offer 270 days’ surfing a year. We stay open in winter.

What happens in a surf lesson?

Our lessons consist of a brief theoretical introduction where the surf instructor explains the basics of surfing, essential surfing safety rules, and the technique of standing up on the board.

If you already have some surfing experience, the instructor will ask you some questions to get an idea of your level of knowledge and decide whether there are any aspects you need to review.

The surf instructor will answer any questions, put you through a brief warm-up session, and finally start the practical session in the water.

These are some of the things you will learn about during a first surf lesson, also depending on factors such as each student’s level and the weather conditions on the day:

  • Safety and surf etiquette in and out of the water
  • Entering the water correctly
  • Paddling and position on top of the surfboard
  • Getting through a wave
  • Sitting on the board and the standby position
  • Steering the board
  • Catching the wave
  • Taking off and riding the wave
  • Moving on the face of the wave
  • Bailing out/kicking out
  • Finishing the wave
  • What to do if you fall off
  • Return to the beach

Surfing is a healthy sport and, apart from the training itself, it strengthens values such as effort, constancy and personal achievement. Everything needed to improve people’s quality of life in the natural environment of the sea.
