Surf School

It is directed to beginners, to those who want to have an unique experience of enjoying the sensation of being on a board and also to those who want to give the first steps on surfing and evolve to a more advanced stage.

 

RG Surf school Levels

According to the knowledge and experience of each one, the surfers are split by levels and in groups of five, each group with one instructor to direct the class. According to its evolution, the surfer may be attributed with a diploma and transit to the next level.

  •  LEVEL 1 The training will focus on simulations to teach the surfers how to be in the ocean and on the acquisition of notions of right positioning on the board, how to paddle, how to win balance on the board and about take-off. Much of the initial training will be developed on the wave’s foam or in very small waves. At this level, the surfers will learn how to be in the sea, how to seat on the board waiting for waves and the basic security rules such as passing through waves, know the wind, identify and deal with ocean currents and understand tides.
  • LEVEL 2 – At this level, the surfer has total knowledge of how to be in the ocean. The surfer can position himself on the board to catch a wave, take-off and standing on the board and also has a sense of balance and permanence on the board, being able to slide on the wave for some time.
  • LEVEL 3 – At the advanced level of RG Surf School, the surfer has already total balance when on the board, can perfectly do the side take-off, doing even the first drops, feeling the true feeling of cutting the wave. The surfer starts to know which wave is or isn’t good to take and can also surf waves with a certain size, being able to make the transition from a learning board to a “normal” board.

 

Surf Academy

RG Surf Academy will be composed by a group of young people who develops a advanced level or a high performance specific training towards competition, to obtain a level of “high performance” on surfing. RG Surf Academy outlines an annual training plan, backing the surfer on the calendar previously defined in the begging of each year.
There will be also a restrict group designated by “Elite Project Group” with a specific surf training in different spots to develop the technique, to give a different approaching in challenging waves with the purpose of training completed top surfers.

In the “Elite Project Group” there will be a restrict group of 4-6 surfers from the age of 13 years old until the surfer no longer feels the need of continuing with accompaniment. In this stage the surfers are normally sponsored and have specific needs such as the planning of the sports season and having back up at the competitions. On the pre-season and in the middle of the sports season, RG Surf Academy will organize a training camp of three days with the goal of improve technical, physical and psychological components, in order to prepare the surfer to a better performance on the competitive season.
